It is hard to beat a beautiful sunset. I think sunsets might be one of the most universally cherished scenes. Sunsets happen everywhere. Everyone can see a sunset. Sunsets occur along city skylines or out in nature. You can experience sunsets out on an adventure. But there is also simple joy in experiencing a sunset while relaxing at home. Maybe you are even just sitting inside watching TV and happen to look… Read More
I love to camp. My favorite places to camp are ones where the campground itself lends itself to photography. Nice scenic locations. Higley Flow State Park worked out really well for me. Most nights I walked down to the lake to photograph the sunset. I like to experiment and try to incorporate different elements into my sunset photography. I was fascinated by this large tree stump and roots along the lake shore…. Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 346. Finally a clear sky at night so I can experiment with some night sky photography. Had fun trying out some things. Today I used one of my DSLRs and my full size tripod. I struggled to get my setting right and make the adjustments on my camera that I needed. I had a hard time getting the focus correct in the dark. I do like… Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 266. Today was a mostly rainy day. I didn’t really know what I was going to photograph today. But when I got home from work the skies had cleared. No more rain. The clouds were brightly lit. Seemed like a good day to wait and see how sunset turned out.
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 223. My original thought for today was to photograph more of the new flowers that I bought recently. But when I was getting around to take photos this evening I looked out the window and there were nice clouds in the sky. We haven’t been having many night skies with interesting clouds lately. I decided to switch things up and photograph the sky instead of the… Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 218. I went outside hoping for a nice sunset. There were a few clouds in the sky. There was some decent light. I sat in a chair and watched things develop. Trying to see the light. How the light played across the sky. Subtle shades. Subtle textures of clouds. Nothing dramatic. I captured a few images. I added a touch in post processing.
One photo a day challenge: Day 187. Here is a different take on the new coneflower I bought. In this photo I combined the to flower blossoms positioned against the post sunset sky. I did some post processing to enhance the details. I also worked on brining out the colors in the sky.
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
One photo a day challenge: Day 54. After a day working in the home office I really wanted to get outside for a little while before sunset. I wanted to go for a hike, but I did not want to spend too much of the fleeting daylight getting there. I drove down off our hill. Across the river valley. Then drove back up the other side of the valley. I went to… Read More
