So I am REALLY slow ...
... when it comes to editing images. More precisely slow to edit to get the effect I want. This image was taken in 2009 and there are many iterations. What do you think?
...Dewy old Web...
No frost here this morning, just low cloud cover or Fog if you like. Everywhere is wringing wet with dew even the old spiders web that I photographed yesterday!
I think the dew droplets looked quite good, so here are a couple of shots I took...
web dew. (1).jpg I'm fascinated by the beadlets of dew anchoring to the web strands!
web dew. (2).jpg It was quite breezy and the web was moving too much I think!
web dew. (3).jpg I think this is the best!
Still working with snow ...
... view from my basement early this morning (had to work quickly because fog was lifting) --> Backyard_008
After taking several with camera on automatic (which were OK but had 'hot spot'), tried manual settings
- speed 1/500
- EV 0.0
- aperture f8
- focal length 122mm
I did change the saturation and hue settings using Capture NX2. Would appreciate comments on composition (this is not cropped), editing, etc.
Here's a B&W version --> Backyard_008bw
Just One Today
Sunday I got up early and went looking for the bald eagles. It was deer hunting season and there were people near the nest so I decided to be safe and not go there. This is about the only decent shot I got. I did see an immature baldie but only got a shot of his back and he was a bit too far away.
Have a Great Day! Thanks for looking. :o)
Thanks for all the i.d.s on those two strange birds LeeAnn and I saw. I just knew there would be a variety of names for them :o) The first day I arrived I was waiting for LeeAnn to meet up with me and was on my way to pick myself up a sandwich when I got distracted with what else but birds! This pelican seemed to do a lot of talking. Caught this egret coming in for a landing. The second day was foggy foggy foggy. While waiting for our boat trip to try to see the Whooping Cranes I took a couple of shots of boats. BoatsNFog and a BirdNBoatNFog .Needless to say we only saw 2 sets of Whoopers and there was a lot of fog between them and our lens. I did manage to cut some of the fog out of a few shots in post work but was not all that clear, might post one later just because they are awesome birds and huge!
Thanks for looking, more later ;).
A couple days ago I was up early and noticed it was really foggy outside. So I grabbed my camera and drove around the countryside in hopes of finding some interesting silo or barn shots. I also found an Old Fashioned Fence which looked like it was going to fall apart, but it was very pictureesque.
Edit: Foggy Trees II
Foggy Morning Sunrise
Not considered my "best shot" but more of yes I want critique on this one. :)...I've never done a fog shot before so this is my first try. I didn't have but the sun & trees between my neighbors houses to shoot with since I was still in my robe :). What do you think?
Thanks for looking.
Modification -after your suggestions I did a couple of crops as shown in my reply in the comments. I decided to go ahead and put them here also. Thanks everyone.
Islands in the Fog -- Best of 2008
Of the pics I took in 2008, I think this is my favorite for the year.
Disclaimer Notice: Your opinions may vary. :^)
~ Inspirational...no kidding ???
A little while ago, someone had snapped me to ask if I wouldnt mind if they used a couple of my images for their churches music... the images would be in the background, and the lyrics to Christian songs in front..... I was very honored and pleased to let them do that.
Here are the two that they wanted. I think this is cool !!
I wasn't too sure if I need to put a watermark on it or not.

Passing the day away
I'm stuck in Murfreesboro today and seeing as I have no class and no pressing assignment to be edited/printed I'm in my apartment for a while and going to share some stuff with you guys starting with some shots from my weekend in Tuscaloosa. It's a lot prettier there than I imagined (having never been there I just figured it would be a lot like central south alabama, but it wasn't).
Comments, critiques and suggestions are always welcomed.
Morning on the river
A recent post with photos of a foggy morning around water reminded me of these two images that I took a couple of years ago. There were taken on the Marion river in Upstate New York near Raquette Lake. The sunrise photo is a favorite of mine and I have used it as wallpaper on my PC on and off. The pictures were taken with an older Olympus 2mb camera that I carried on canoe and backpack trips.
Islands in the Fog
This was shot at Lake Hamilton, Hot Springs, Arkansas. It was early in the morning and the fog was rolling across the lake. The fog completely engulfed the islands shortly after I snapped this shot.
I was playing with frames and added one for fun. Maybe it would be better without.
Enjoy and thanks for looking.
Foggy Morning Church Steeple
I shot this one early this morning with my cell phone. Hope you enjoy.
Foggy Tree Silhouette for the Tree Challenge
Here's one I took a while back. It was taken on a foggy morning walk on a nearby golf course. Thought it would be a good one for the challenge.
