One photo a day challenge: Day 161. I set out to try something a little different today. Using artificial light in my photography has opened up some new avenues. The lights I have have worked out in photographing close up and medium distance photos. Tonight I tried to use the artificial lighting on a more wide angle scenic photograph. The lights worked to illuminate the foreground. Lighting up the tree trunk and… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 160. Spent a little time photographing the trees here in New York. This tree was growing just outside the edge of the forest. In one shot I could compose an image that included the tree trunk, the edge of the forest, and the bright opening of a clearing in the background. I like how the tree trunk is half in shadow on one side. The dark… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 159. Tonight I was able to catch the very end of the light left in the sky from sunset. The foreground trees are almost completely in shadow. The night sky has just a little bit of brightness left in it just above the tree line. There is a touch of color to the sky and clouds just above the clear light above the trees. then the… Read More

Some days when you go birding at a National Wildlife Refuge like Montezuma you see a smattering of everything. There are some ducks. Shorebirds are foraging along the shallows. Raptors are soaring overhead. And there are songbirds in the trees. On other trips to the wildlife refuge the trip feels more like, and now presenting the star of our show…. On days like this there are often still a lot of birds… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 158. I enjoy it when plants that I had no part in cultivating start to bloom. Wildflowers of all sorts are great to see. Flowers sprouting from the ground, flowering trees, and flowering bushes. I usually prefer flowers with a bit of color in them. But today the soft light from the evening overcast sky allowed for a good amount of detail to show through on… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 157. It is amazing how much can change in a day. Nature can pass through its phases of growth before we even know it. Just yesterday most of our peonies didn’t look like they were going to bloom any time soon. But today there are bunches of them blooming. Some of the peonies are huge and fully opened. Other peonies are still smaller and the petals… Read More

One photo a day: Day 156. It was a scorcher outside today. I did not venture outside much to create photography. I did brave the bright midday sun for a few minutes though. Fortunately we have planted quite a few flowers this year and they are mostly right on our front and back porch. This saved me from having to be outside exposed to the sun in the midday heat. While photographing… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 155. I love observing new growth coming in on plants. The way the foliage sprouts and unfurls. Creating new shapes that change over time. The leaves emerge as one color. Then there is a subtle shift in color as they grow and age. Eventually the leaves develop into the green we see on most trees. I am not sure what type of tree this is. I… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 154. I’m not really a big fan of rainy days. I love to be outside. But I have a hard time getting motivated to go outside if its a rainy day. I think I just like simplicity too much. I don’t like the extra work or preparation that is needed to go outside and enjoy yourself on a rainy day. Being prepared for the rain so… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 153. Lately I have been experimenting with using more artificial lighting in my photography. I have really enjoyed the flexibility the Lume Cube lights I now have in my tool kit have afforded me. I have used these lights to make photographing in low lighting inside the house possible. The lights have also made photographing outside at night possible. And I have used these lights as… Read More
