The detail in the neck feathers and that he appears to be posing just for this shot.
Something different. I saw this when I was out for a walk a few months ago and was drawn to the fact that these vines completely hid the tree. While the initial shot was in color. I thought that a black and white image brought out the pattern, but did hide the tree more.
We went to the beach for a vacation two weeks ago and I had visions of great beach photographs to post, but it rain half the time we were there, so I didn’t take many photographs. So instead I present another photograph from the same day as Heron and The Couple posts. When I took this I was about 6 ft away and when I opened the image on my computer I was amazed at how good this came out. Again, I am very pleased with this lens.
This was taken the same day as the previous post, and again with my new lens. Saw this group of Mallards resting new a lake in the city that I live. Not sure if these two are actually a couple, more than likely they are.
Been a while since I posted, but wanted to post something newer than January. So I actually got off my butt and and got out a few weeks ago. Most of the trees and plants were somewhere between just starting to come out and already done. As the time of the day was mid afternoon I choose to look for compositions that either were side or backlit.
So last week, or maybe the week before, I decided to just use a prime lens and see what I could get. Since I only own one prime lens the choice was easy. I wish finding a subject was that easy though. I believe I took 47 photographs, and, at least for now, I think this was the best of them. It was at then end of my walk and this set of leaves caught my eye. I opened the lens to the maximum aperture to achieve the low depth of field, and cropped the final edit to a square. I reduced the saturation around the leaves to bring the out a little.
Another photograph from October. With the fog and dew, there were a lot of opportunities to capture the numerous spiderwebs. I like the way this web just surrounds the plant.
Took a walk on the path behind the development that I live in 2 weeks ago looking for something to photograph. Took a few photographs of some of the remaining flowers in the area. This one caught my eye because of its bright color and size.
Quick photograph from last Sunday. Took an early walk along the path near my home. Saw these daisies and thought they may make a nice composition.
Took this photograph on 13 March, while walking on the path behind where I live. I was looking for Spring colors and there were a lot of these yellow flowers along the river. Probably could have brought down the exposure a little as I did blow out the highlights on the flower petals.
