This was the view I was treated to Saturday morning, for about ten minutes. Of which eight were spent driving down the highway on my way to the park. My morning plans had called for a sunrise outing, which didn’t work out quite as I’d hoped. The conditions were right – some clouds, some fog […]
In my previous post I shared a series of very colorful sunrise images and called it,very unimaginatively, Sunrise Color. Well this is the sister post, with the outtakes from that morning that just didn’t go well enough with the others for me to include them there, despite the fact that I really liked them (I outright […]
So here’s this past Monday morning up at Bullhead Bay, shivering in shorts and a light jacket that weren’t the smartest choice while fog curled around my ankles. I shoot here a lot, the shoreline and especially the dock being perennial favorites of mine. If I keep working a location enough, I figure that I’ll […]
Just about to wrap up the last photos from my Vermont trip, ending with a few landscapes. This series came from my last morning outing, on a day when I wasn’t sure what I wanted to shoot. All I knew for certain is that I was bored going to the same locations and wanted something […]
I was able to get a few new sites in during my time in Vermont; this was the first of them, Beaver Pond, near Pico Mountain. As you can see, it’s not much of a pond – really just a wet meadow, cut by a pair of creeks. That’s how it shows up in the […]
Vertical panoramas are tricky. You need a narrow area of interest, something that will fit in the short dimension of the final composition. Perhaps more importantly, you need enough “stuff” to fill all that vertical space, and preferably stuff that is meaningful and worth the pixels. In this case, the image came about from my […]
Sunday morning finally gave me an actual, cloud-free sunrise, coupled with maybe a half-inch of fresh snow – perfect conditions to get out and shake off some of the cobwebs that keep building during these seemingly endless stretches of cold, bland weather.
I was up at sunrise yesterday despite the time-shift – or because of it, actually. I may be one of the few people who actually likes “springing ahead,” since it moves sunrise to a much more tolerable time for another few weeks, making it that much easier for me to get out and enjoy it.
When I saw this image appear on my computer screen, I instantly loved it. It’s a quiet, simple photo and, as sunrises go, it’s pretty low-key. No flashy light, no stunning clouds. Just an incredibly blue sky and the first blush of light on the hilltop. But I still love it, I guess because of […]
Sunday morning dawned cold and overcast, but after my success with the eagles the day before, I was already up and in the field. Photography is like a drug and, when the shoots are successful, you want more. And more. Even if it means getting up at 0600 on a Sunday and bundling in four […]
