While out taking pictures in the woods behind our development, I heard two Barred Owls. I followed the sound and was able to see one fly away and the other head into a tree, although I did not know which one. While looking for the owl I saw it fly out out from a tree not more than 30 ft from me. I followed it to this tree, and I was able to get a few pictures of it. Other than the ghost image of a tree branch in the lower right this is one of the better pictures I was able to get. If you look close you can see its dinner (mouse I think) in its mouth. I only which I had taken a longer zoom lens with me.
Another shot from our 2017 family vacation. This is of the Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse and was taken on the same cruise as the Seal image that I posted last week. Hope to get out in the next few weeks to take some new stuff.
Another picture from our trip to Maine in 2017. While there we took a cruise with Bass Harbor Island Cruises and saw some seals along with other wildlife. This is a picture of a single seal laying on the rocks.
Didn’t have anything new to post so dug through some old pictures. This one was taken on our family vacation in 2017 to Maine. When I first looked at this picture I tried to eliminate the fog, but later realized that was what made me take the photograph to begin with.
Another Photo from the river behind where I live. Picture was taken in early January, but the dead leaves are still on the tree. They have a gold color which seems to brighten the scene. Other than the vine running down the center, which may draw the viewer up and out of the scene I am pleased with this composition.
I’m a little late posting anything, but still trying to get into a regular routine. For this picture I was out behind the development that I live in and was just snapping some picts. None of them were that great, but I decided to try some processing in Lightroom, after I watched a video. This is what I came out with. The image is cropped to a 4×5, exposure increased, and contrast. I also did some local adjustments on the forward cat tail. I was pleased with the outcome as the original was flat.
From recent hike at Antietam Battlefield. This is along Antietam Creek near Burns Bridge. Liked the way the trees were reflecting off the creek.
This was taken in 2017 while on a trip to Philadelphia with my sons Scout Troop. We were eating at Pat’s King of Steaks when I saw this bike, or what was left of a bike. Felt it was interesting that only the frame(skeleton) of the bike was left. And of course it was locked to the sign post. It reminded me of the animal skeletons you would see in desert scenes in movies.
Took this last February. I felt that this looked best as a B&W vs. the color version. I liked the reflections on the creek.
Recent picture I took after I got a new tripod. Did some work in Lightroom to get the sky to come out a little. Will probably try to take this scene again when the light is different.
