365-339 Excuse me while I…

I don’t often show the “big picture” too often, instead focusing on details, but today I thought I would show a nice dawn sky. The color was beautiful from my unobstructed view high on the hill this morning. I usually don’t take too many photos until it gets light enough to handhold the camera, unless I want to intentionally blur a shot, but I didn’t want to miss the nice color and clouds so I quickly set up my small travel tripod and took a few snaps before work. Original? No. Creative? Not really. Just plain nice? Absolutely. Pentax K20D DA18-135

And speaking of the sky, birds fly in the sky. So naturally I’ll throw in this other photo from today of some birds. I played around with the color balance a little just for kicks. An added bit of purple haze.

Meet the Flockers


Finally, because I think it’s a nice photo, some leaves. This photo is somewhat similar to some other late fall details I’ve done recently so that’s why it didn’t make the 365 cut. Otherwise, I like it.

Three Leaves


It’s tough sometimes picking a daily photo when I shoot such a variety of subjects during the day. That’s the beauty of having my blog because I can just post all of them! I guess the normal thing would be to stick with a similar style of photography throughout the year but seriously, is that any fun?

      Thanks. I’m at a point where I really like alternative color processes.
