Going out for a daytime expedition, I was able to put my 5D to the test a little more. Needless to say, I had an awesome time and came away with a few decent exposures.

Cool Twilight

Ending an evening of photography with single digit temperatures, I pause once more for this final capture.

Finding a calm palce to stand in the water, I set my tripod and began capturing the convergence of lines and colors.

As the sun sets the colors begin to transform, blend, and create a serene scene.

After working all day, I was ready to get in a few images before the end of daylight. Heading down to the lake, I saw numerous opportunities for image capture. Always one for a good reflection, I used varying angles to achieve the most aesthetically pleasing image. I hope you enjoy.

Oh yea, as I was making this image a Bald Eagle flew over so close that I could hear its wings flapping through the air. Awesome.

Having not posted in awhile, I figured it was time for some new stuff. Something maybe out of the ordinary. I have enclosed a collection of examples of my new favorite digital post processing technique: sepia.

The use of sepia has become more of a genre idea instead of the commonality it use to serve. Many say that sepia gives photos a sense of elegance or artistic quality. I found one website that regarded sepia as the tonality that makes everyday scenes into art. Well, I am all about taking ordinary scenes and turning them into art. I do go a step further and capture scenes that are common, but not ordinary. They are not ordinary because most people do not take the time to see them.

I hope you enjoy these images. I usually shy away from  extensive photo post processing, but I feel that I was not excessive. In order to enjoy some artwork, you must first put aside preconcieved ideas on how something should look.

Well, once I again I have gotten in the habit of not regularly updating my blog. I can not use the excuse that I was busy, because I wasn’t. I just was enjoying my Christmas break. I have been busy editing photos though. Tonight I am uploading some pics that were taken awhile ago. The glory of digital shines again. It is so easy to pull up an old image and do another version of it. I recently found that I have passed over some great images that I took awhile back. Well, I used some newly acquired techniques in Photoshop and created some nice pieces in my mind. Enjoy and have a nice Christmas.

Amongst the Trees

There is something miraculous about sitting amongst full grown trees. It is easy to fall into a deep philosophical trance when thinking about a trees life. I will not do that in writing, but you should try it some time. The memories I have where the only witnesses were the trees around me, are some of my greatest. The silent observers are always around and therefore always watching.

geese-triptychThis will make four posts in one day, oh well. I usually wait and spread out my uploads, but I figured that the reason I take photos is so that I can show them. Enjoy.
