I have four images for today. I would encourage you to at least look at the 4th one for a fluke of luck. 🙂
Yesterday I showed you an image I called “Golden Lake.” It was a beautiful time of the evening when the sun was in its transition from yellow to gold to red. The image above was from that same series and it features my Son, Mark and his significant other, Julia who took the camp’s paddle boat for a spin and I captured this image of them.
On their return trip, I ripped off about 20 – 25 shots to make sure I had a good one for the blog and for them.
When I was processing this photo I noticed a black spot of something in the upper left hand corner of the image and was considering removing it. I took a closer look and discovered what that spot actually was.
This is the same image as the last one except I cropped it down so you could get a better view. You can also click on any of the images for a larger more detailed view of the image.
There were several fishing boats trolling back and forth in this area and now I know why. 🙂
Enjoy your day and be careful.
Jeanne and I went on a photo run late yesterday afternoon. Chasing the sun and looking for things to photograph in the beautiful soft yellow light. I love this time of day.
I have three images for you today that show the wonderful interaction of the sun setting and the clouds reflecting the rays of the sun. It can and does paint a beautiful array of colors and textures to behold.
This was the last image of the day. The sun had already disappeared below the horizon and all that was left was the reflection on the clouds. It was fun to watch but the temperature was low and my face and fingers burned from the cold.
This was one of the first images I took on our journey. It’s really not much of a tree but I loved the golden sky behind it.
That’s it for today. Nothing else on my mind so I will bid you adieu. Enjoy your day and be careful.
About a year ago one of my good friends from work asked me if I would photograph her family and of course I agreed. Well weather, moving, and life in general kept us from getting that done until last night.
We had actually planned to do this about a month ago but the weather again didn’t cooperate. The weather last night was perfect and the light was a nice soft orange glow so we were able to take some images.
I really have a new respect for child photographers. They have much more creativity and patience than I do. My focus is on the shot not getting the kids to look at the camera and giving a natural smile. I got some good shots but a child photographer would have gotten a lot more.
It was a fun time however and I think they will be pleased. This is the only one I processed but the proofs of some of the other images are pleasing to me.
That’s it for today. I hope you enjoy your day. Thanks for stopping by and be careful.
I know I said no more birds on my next post. I did go out Saturday with the intention of finding something besides wildlife to shoot. I just didn’t see anything that caught my interest. I was on my way back to the ranch when I came across these guys and as you can see by the light there wasn’t much time left to shoot.
I had to bump the ISO up to 800 to capture these guys at a decent shutter speed and they are still a little soft for my taste.
I went up around Sherrill and Ball Town but there just wasn’t anything that caught my eye. There were a couple of combines out but they were in the shade and they just didn’t look good.
I did find a very strange-looking bird sitting on a power line and I shot about 20 shots of it. None of them came out worth a darn he was just a black fuzzy blob against a blue sky. Too bad I didn’t have a flash with me. I also saw some deer but they too were in the shadows and didn’t lend themselves to making an image. I tried to get a different angle on them but by the time I (stealthily) got to where I thought I could shoot they took off. I guess at my height and weight I’m not very stealthy. 🙂
So that’s it for today. Not a very good post nor good images but it’s all I have for today. Thanks for stopping by and be careful.
