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
One photo a day challenge: Day 143. The last several days have been hot. Today there was a quick rainstorm that broke the heat wave. The rains did not last long, but the rain was intense. The flowers got a good watering. I love photographing flowers. But, seldom do flowers look better than after a rainstorm. I love the few tiny and scattered water droplets on the back side of this flower… Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 141. Spent some time just sitting in a field again. Sat. Patiently waiting. Studying the tiny flowers. Looking for just the right angle. I don’t actually remember creating this image. But I love how the flower is framed by the blades of grass.
One photo a day challenge: Day 124. Spring continues to progress up here on the hill where we live. Living up at a little bit of elevation has a strange effect on spring for us. When we drive down off our hill we see grass greening, plants sprouting, leaves unfurling and flowers blossoming. We see all these signs of spring happening down in town. But for us up on the hill it… Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 103. I get up early every morning so that I will have time to accomplish two things before I have to go to work. Most days I want to get a workout in. And every day I also want to get into my home office and work on photography projects. However, spending the morning in the home office can have a cost. If I am in… Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 101. I spent the winter trying to keep some of the flowers I planted in pots last spring and summer alive. It is unclear how many have survived. But there are some that are clearly showing signs of life. Some plants are beginning to grow new stems and leaves. Two plants that are of the same variety seem to be doing particularly well. This Gerbera Daisy… Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 95. It is a beautiful day. I walked around the yard just to see how spring was progressing. Green is emerging from more and more places. Places it has been hidden away for the winter. Hidden for the winter but not hidden forever. Now. Now the green life of spring is making its return. More green. More growth. Life reemerging in even more places. And best… Read More
One Photo a Day Challenge: Day 87. I have at least 5 plants that I have successfully overwintered in my basement. If I hadn’t tried to overwinter them in my basement they would have died. I can tell that at least these 5 plants have been successful to this point because they are actively growing new foliage. I just discovered one that I had suspected would survive the overwintering had indeed survived…. Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 73. We have been experiencing some warmer weather in upstate New York. Most of the snow in our region has melted. More often than not lately the high temperature for the day ahs been above freezing. Spring is a week away. It is almost one of the best times of the year. The time of year when all the new growth begins to emerge. Spring is… Read More
Its been so warm this winter that my small azalea bushes already have leaves.
