I would give almost anything for this to be the view from my back yard. What I like about this photo specifically is how the clouds and rocks seem to mirror each other in general shape. Also, shooting a longer exposure allows for the “soft” feel of the water which just makes this feel relaxing […]
What I like most about this one is the branches (dead trees) in the water. It almost looks like there’s no ground, and you can see roots for the trees in the background. I get lost in looking at trees sometimes, especially when there’s patterns like this. Download: Swamp-Roots_Asgard_Photography_IMG_5987-scaled.jpg Camera Settings F-stop: f/16 Exposure: 1/200 […]
One more glass ball photo from a recent trip north… one danger they don’t tell you about ahead of time when using these is how well they work as magnifying lenses. For example, you don’t want to hold one in your hand on a sunny day. Most of the time, in a shot like this […]
I almost didn’t end up using this one… I didn’t get either the clouds/sunset I wanted, or the reflection setup I’d hoped for, but what I like about it is the arc of the rock with a little bit of some people visible toward the end. The area to the lower left is just a […]
I’ve posted a few photos like this, and to be honest it’s not my favorite – either the bird or the shot. It feels too empty to me. But, the reflection thing catches my attention when I’m wandering by the water and see them, especially when the water is calm. I think maybe part of […]
I’ve always preferred including people in silhouette if I’m taking photos in public that have people in them. My inner introvert is a little to strong and keeps me from getting up in people’s business. But having people in landscape photos really can enhance them greatly. I think this one is a perfect example – […]
Sometimes a photo just asks to be displayed differently. In this case, for some reason, it looks better to me turned on its side. Made me think of an eyeball – the lake watching for something. The glass balls are fun to play with in various landscape situations… though it’s difficult to be creative with […]
I didn’t get the shot I was going for here, thanks to a lot of brush along the shoreline. I was trying to move slow as to not scare the bird away, but every time I got into a good spot, he’d move.
One of my favorites kinds of bird at one of my favorite parks. After moving out of the U.P., Kensington Metropark has been a lifesaver when I’ve absolutely needed to get my head into the outdoors that wasn’t in the middle of town. And it’s got the added benefit of wildlife that lets you get a bit closer, even if they are usually a little demanding for a handout.
