I processed this image so that it would reflect  more of a cold feeling. Considering it was 8 degrees, this is a more accurate portrayal of the scene.

 

Cool Colors

 

I will be heading to Iowa (weather permitting) and look foward to some more cool (literally) images. I hope to have a good collection come Monday.

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.

Well I must confess that I could be out taking photos in the cold right now, but instead I am inside in the warmth and comfort. I blame my laziness partially due to some sort of infection in my head that is causing severe pressure and headaches. SO…I go back on some previously skipped images and edit them or upload them.

Here is an image from Lions Lake, here in Warrensburg. Perhaps it looks familiar to some. I have many decent images from the little snow we got before Christmas and decided that it fit the mood of cold and dreary I am feeling now. Hope you enjoy.

Taking photos of landscapes combined with unique cloud formations is something I feel I live for. When I stood out in this field, I was almost jumping with glee. I was in the right spot at the right time. I had the elements(lone tree, water, clouds, and field) to come away with some excellent images. Using a tripod and my Canon 30D, I bracketed each composition. Having the ability to take your hands off the camera and observe from different angles is crucial to my success. Many times I turn my head and look away from the sun and realize, the best shot is behind me. Having the most maneuverablity possible is very important.

I shot this at a friends farm just south of Warrensburg. I embrace the fact that exquisite photos can be taken out almost anyones back door. I have posted numerous shots on my flickr site from last nights trip. Please look at those as well. You can find a link to my flickr at the bottom right of this page.

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.

I consider a snapshot something that is instantaneous and candid. A simple turn of the camera, snap of the shutter, and an exposed piece of film(sensor). Producing a snaphot while bracketing on a tripod may seem like something more complex to the outsider. Even with my camera set up for methodical image capture, I captured a moment: a glimpse of this boy’s life.
