Another photograph from Boneyard Beach in Florida.
Small waterfall from Longwood Gardens. There was a larger one near this one, but this just filled the frame perfectly.
Another photograph from our trip to Longwood Gardens. This of the Meadow Garden. While this is good I feel that there might be a better composition. I would also prefer that the 3 people were not there. I tried to remove them with Photoshop, but I need to practice a little more.
Yes, it has been a while since I posted and I am finally getting around to looking at some photographs I recently took. The one above is a pond/swamp in Fort Clinch State Park on Amelia Island in Florida. This was taken while we were hiking the Willow Pond Nature Trail. Although we didn’t see any alligators here, we did see one later as we got closer to the end. At first, it looked like a log, but looking closer, it was an alligator.
Saw this group of trees in the Hunting Island State Park, SC a few weeks ago. Kept looking for a position where I could get a nice foreground leading to the trees and still capture the opening in the clouds. I wasn’t able to get the opening where I want it, but I liked the water that seems to lead you to trees. The image was taken in the evening and I was facing east.
Took this while walking the dog at one of the local parks. There are numerous trees in this open space and I liked the way this one was lit on one side. It is still winter here and the grass has not yet turned green, but the trees in the background and the clouds in the sky add to the feeling on a cool winter day.
Finally got out to take some photographs this past week. Saw this scene and thought it may be an okay shot. I’ve taken others of the same area during fall and summer and from a different position. Wish I had taken the time to move about and try another perspective. Well there is still some winter left, might get another shot.
It’s been a while since I posted, a new year and already I’m off to a slow start. As previously mentioned in this blog I have a few film cameras and hope to take more photographs with them. The photograph above was taken with one of them. It is the first roll of color film that I have shot with this camera. The scene is of a building in the development where I live and I had previously photographed the same building in B&W film.
Sometimes it pays to go back and look at your photographs again. This is another photograph from my recent hike at the local watershed. When I took the photograph I was drawn to the bright yellow leaves and the contrast from the dark path to the bright opening. At first, I was not pleased with what I had gotten, but after looking at it a second time and making some adjustments I had second thoughts.
Got a chance to take a hike in one of our local watersheds this past week. I took our new dog with me to see how well he would behave and if I could actually take pictures with him along. He behaved well and looks like I have a new hiking partner. Too bad I couldn’t find much to photograph though. I did like this scene though. The group of trees in the center and the last remnants of fall clinging to the trees.
