2013 - Year in Review

As we close out the year 2013, I present my year in review with some of the more popular images created since the 2012 version

Now that Standard Time has returned and Autumn is in full swing, showing it's vibrant colors, it's a great time to be enjoying the beauty of outdoor photography.

Lakeside Sunset

Welcome back! In this post we have a look at the magical light of nature at sunset. Walking the shoreline of a nearby lake we find a wonderful blend of contrasting skies, reflective water and vibrant wild grass in the foreground of this shot.

After setting up on the tripod, I was able to squeeze out a 3-second shot at f/22 in my attempt to create a little motion in the clouds. I had used a 9-stop ND filter (Hoya ND400) on the previous shot but the intense sky was overexposing.

With the light changing quickly I simply removed the ND and settled for this rather than loose the scene totally. Not as streaky of a sky as I had hoped but acceptable.

As always, I appreciate your visit and comments.
