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.

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
One photo a day challenge: Day 50. I walked out the door today hoping to see a dramatic sunset. It had been overcast and gloomy all day. But as evening neared the gloom began to part in places. Areas of blue began to emerge. Distinct white clouds streaked the sky. The gray was lifting slowly. Blue skies and clouds were breaking through but only in a few areas. Luckily one of those… Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 48. As today developed they sky was clear and the sun was shining. The sun was high in the sky and blindingly bright throughout the day. So unlike it has been recently. As the day progressed and the sky stayed clear with the sun bright I began to think about my photography. I was thinking of what I would do for my daily photograph today. With… Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 34. Today after yet another snowstorm here in upstate, New York it was nice to see the skies clear up a little bit. Snow storms of course lead to shoveling. I spent an our shoveling after working today. As I was shoveling the clouds finally started to part. I don’t remember the last time I saw the sun. It was nice to have bright skies. I… Read More
