EVERYONE HAS A “GO TO” PLACE

•April 25, 2017 • Leave a Comment

If I had to choose a local favorite, my “Go To” place for landscape photography would be Huntington Beach – and more specially, the pier at sunset.

This particular image was captured about 7-8 minutes after the sun had already set.  I have come to realize some of the best sunsets do not require the sun to be in the picture.  Sure I love to capture that golden ball of fire in my images, but oftentimes there will be more vibrant color a few minutes after the sun sets.  Many times I have been one of several people taking pictures of the sunset, only to see the majority of them leave immediately after the sun disappears beneath the horizon.  If you want to capture the full spectrum of the sunset, stick around.  You will not be disappointed.

This particular shoot, I was waiting for the pier street lamps to come on.  I thought it would add interest to the image.  I’m pretty satisfied that I waited.

My latest image to be professionally requisitioned from my portfolio. This is Point Vicente Lighthouse located on the California Coast in Palos Verdes.

I hope you will consider “following” my photography page. Thank you.

THEN CAME THE MORNING

Even though I have posted this image before, at this particular time of the year, it bears repeating.

MORE SPRING HAS SPRUNG

I thought I would continue with the spring theme.  Here is a nice image that has an artistic black highlight added in post processing.  I think it presents in a more contemporary setting with this processing.  In this particular shot, I used a black drop cloth to create the background.  I think doing that really sets the flower apart from any background that may be distracting.

HAPPY SPRING!

SPRING HAS SPRUNG

With respect to spring, I thought I would post a more traditional flower option.  This one is screaming “Spring Has Sprung!”

A KALEIDOSCOPE OF SPRING

This is an interesting image that is quite different from what I usually do.  What started as a simple burst of purple energy has been transformed into…well, something else.  I look at it…and I like it.  Then, I look at it…and I hate it.  Then, I look at it…and I find myself unable to look away!

I’ll let you decide…

KALEIDOSCOPE OF COLOR

FROM IOWA TO OREGON

From the heart of the Madison County bridges in Iowa, to a Lincoln County bridge in Oregon.  This one is the shortest covered bridge in Oregon at only 42 feet long, and was built in 1938 by Otis Hamer.

This image was one of many we captured on a 5-day road trip down Highway 101 from Aberdeen, Washington to San Francisco, California.  Now that was a road trip!

Just realized this is my 500th blog post!
