Another one shot and done post today. Nothing on my mind other than a brief comment about this image. I like it because it catches the transition of the leaf turning and eventually dropping to the ground. Such is life.
You can see more detail if you click on the image.
Enjoy your day and be careful.
Some fall foliage for you today. Yesterday afternoon (waiting on the golden hour) I went to the Dubuque Arboretum to see if I could photograph the waterfall they have there. I had a technique I had learned and wanted to try it out.
Unfortunately two things were against me yesterday. One the water falls wasn’t falling. It was broken and under repair and the golden hour never materialized. The sky was overcast and gray. I could see the outline of the sun trying to burn through but it never made its appearance.
So these first two images I did in HDR. It works for buildings why not trees and bushes? I’m happy with the results. There isn’t much growing at the Arboretum this time of year but it is a peaceful serene place to visit and commune with nature.
I photographed this guy on Sunday when the sky was a beautiful blue and there was plenty of sunlight.
Nothing of importance on my mind this morning so I’ll thank you for stopping by the blog. Enjoy your day and be careful.
I decided to take a different route home last evening hoping to find some more harvest scenes. The contest deadline I want to enter is rapidly approaching and I haven’t found what I’m looking for.
I didn’t find any harvest scenes so I decide to shoot some fall foliage. I’m not thrilled with the images I have for you today but they are what I have.
So while shooting trees I came across this guy sitting in the top of a pine tree. I did a turn around and found a place to park. I was trying to be stealthy but of course that’s hard for me. Once I got close he took off. This image is a little soft as the light was quickly setting and I really didn’t have the camera set up for an eagle shot. When I get a chance to capture an eagle in flight or just sitting I’m going to take it no matter. 🙂
I went to a ribbon cutting yesterday afternoon at a local care center in Maquoketa. The manager is a good friend of mine and we have been on several projects and boards together. They added a new section to their facility to take care of people transitioning from the hospital to their home. It is really a nice enhancement and the care center is well run by my friend.
That’s it for today. Hope you enjoy your mid-week hump day. I’ll do my best to get the Halloween House images and video processed for you tomorrow.
Thanks for stopping by and be careful.
