Late Night on a Pier

It was a dark and gloomy night, the air thick like soup.  The lights carved a path out onto the pier, guiding my steps to a destination lost in the fog…

The Bather

There’s something magical about playing with reflections.  When I took this photo, I knew I would be manipulating it to get this effect and I’m very pleased with the end result.  For me, the combination of the reflection of the statue and the grid work of the conservatory roof plus the texture of the bubbling water all come together to make the image successful.

At The Edge Of Oblivion

One of the apps on my iPhone is meant for HDR, however I have learned that if I move the phone while it is capturing the three shots for bracketing, it provides a multiple exposure effect.  One never knows what will happen.  In this instance, we are standing at the edge of a lake with waves crashing over our feet as I captured the three images.  Other than a bit of clean-up in Adobe Lightroom, it is what it is.

The Land That Time Forgot

The waterfalls and thick forests of the Pacific Northwest have a way of reminding me where we came from.  It’s like sections were left as they were in the time of dinosaurs, or Sleestack if you are an old TV buff.  Thick mist hangs in the air encouraging the green moss to take over anything not moving.  This spot is below the popular Panther Creek Falls.  While there is a viewing platform at the top, you have to climb down two levels to see this beauty.

A Place of Empowerment

I love walking at the seaside these days, it’s become a place of empowerment for me.

Freeze Frame

Mould Fountain, City Hall Park, Lower Manhattan, New York City

A quick shutter speed allowed me to “freeze” the water in the fountain and capture this young woman mid-stride.

The long shadows of this beautiful fountain caught my eye first, but then I decided to explore the effects of different shutter speeds on the wonderful water features. Once I decided to “freeze” the action, I realized I wanted more in the frame and waited for the “right” someone to come along. Bicyclists, joggers, businessmen all passed by. But it was the patterns of this young woman’s ensemble that led me to press the shutter button.
