Yet another rainy day here in upstate, New York. But as I have said over and over, that means I am blessed with the opportunity to photograph more flowers with water droplets. Today For many of the shots I actually took a few flower pots off the porch and set them out in the rain. It was still raining and I didn’t want to go out in the rain. And some of… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 262. I have used my macro lens so much this year. It has been so much fun. If you love photography and do not have a macro lens, I highly recommend one. There are so many fun and interesting things to do with them. Today I stumbled across this grasshopper just sitting on the fence. The grasshopper stayed there as I was putting away our garden… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 259. Today I set out with my macro lens. I walked along the edge of a field with bushes. I was looking at the leaves and flowers. Finding subjects to photograph. I began to notice all the pollinators moving amongst the flowers. There were bees, hornets, wasps, and a cool looking beetle. The bees were moving too fast. It was challenging to compose and image and… Read More

I went from a place I have hardly ever been to to a place I have been to more than most. Today I visited Watkins Glen State Park. Probably my most visited location if not my most photographed. I have actually been here quite a few times this year. Probably more than normal for me. Today I wanted to make a trip to Watkins Glen State Park for a very specific reason…. Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 254. It is funny to feel like, a sense of relief at finally photographing a place because it is so close by but you have essentially never been there. Fully knowing that there is a great photographic feature there and just not making time to go there is strange. I have actually photographed this location before, but for some reason it has been literally over a… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 253. I often set out to create photos with something in mind to photograph. But I am always hoping that something at least a little unexpected will happen. There are some things you can plan for and some things that you can’t. The best you can do is hope fore the opportunity to arise. Then you have to be prepared to take advantage of the situation….

One photo a day challenge: Day 252. Have fun. Explore. Look around. See what you can see. Observe. Notice. Look down. The ground. The forest floor. This mushroom burst up from the ground. Pushing up through the debris. Growing tall.

One photo a day challenge: Day 251. Sometimes it feels like there is just constant rain. It can be very frustrating at times. It can be a real downer. Today the forecast was for rain once again. But, the storm held off. I got out and got some of the yard mowed. The hard was a lot soggier from previous rains than I had expected. It rained in the late afternoon. It… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 250. The sun had set on another day. But, it wasn’t dark out yet. Time to create some images. I was hoping to photograph some of our flowers. That is, if there was still enough light. The goal was to photograph the flowers without artificial light tonight. Using my Nikon 60mm macro lens. The f stop was set as wide as possible. Still a little too… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 249. Flowers have so many aspects that make them beautiful and interesting. The petals of a flower often play an important role in this. I really like flowers whose petals have an irregular look to them. Petals that seem to be randomly distributed. Even more interesting is when a flower has petals that are arranged in a more even and regular pattern, but there is an… Read More
