The Touch

Once again it’s seeing something as simple as a branch meeting the water, to be present in the moment to appreciate the touch of real and reflection.

Kiss of Sunlight

IMG_3591-Edit

I love the textures in this image.  The grass in the foreground, the reflected clouds and the sunlight capping it off at the top.  Also, the shape of the clouds gives the illusion of depth to the center of the image, making it seem almost three dimensional.

Time By the Lake

I recently spent a couple days at a northern Minnesota lake doing a bit of fishing and, of course, a bit of photography.  There’s something about early morning and late afternoon light on water that is hard to resist.  Especially when the water is smooth and the clouds contribute to the composition.

Test Shot

Awhile back I invested in ND filters with the intention that I would begin to learn to use them properly.  I’ve read, watched videos and studied other photographer’s work in preparation.  I also added an app to my phone to help me determine the correct timing based on camera settings.  After a couple of failed test shots, I managed to get one that gives me hope that with a bit more practice, I will be able to capture more shots using the filters.
