This is a shot I took on my most recent trip to Arizona. We decided to head up to California for a few days and stayed in the Weston Desert Willows in the Palm Desert area of Palm Springs. This photo is taken over a gold course and just before sunset with the mountains in the background.
This is a shot I really like of a clock tower in London. I do not know what it is called, if any of you know feel free to leave a comment informing me. The colour of this tower intrigued me along with the style of architecture.
This is another angle of the Grand Canyon in a different location. You can see the shadows of the clouds on the canyon itself, it is really cool. I still stand by my previous statement, a photo cannot capture the essence and massiveness of the Grand Canyon. It feels like a painting along the horizon when you look out over it.
This photo was taken atop Cascade Mountain in the Adirondacks. It was a very cloudy day but that did not stop us. By the time I had reached the top I was in a t-shirt and jeans. We got fairly warm during the hike up so we took layers off to ensure that we would not sweat. But I can assure you, once I got to the clearing on top the wind convinced me that I needed more than just a t-shirt.
This is a photo of the Westminster Abbey, or at least the upper part to capture the Gothic style building and roof style. All English royalty is buried here if what my tour guide said was true, and many other famous English people. We had to watch where we were stepping as some of the stones had names on them, and out of respect we attempted to step around as many as possible.
This is one of my favourite shots from Arizona, it isn’t perfect and there are some smudges from taking a picture through a window, but it doesn’t need to be. I like the way the sun shines through some of the shrubbery and the cacti stand out. The mountains in the background illuminated from behind, and the lens flare caused by the sun leaving a small trace of blue sky visible. I really enjoy this picture.
I have always loved photography, and the first time I discovered tilt-shift I did not believe that what I was seeing was actually real. I find tilt-shift really neat and I love how it plays with your perception of reality, for example, this shot is not new to this blog, I posted the original a few days ago, and now it looks like model of something. Everything looks miniature. I will leave the original below for comparison.
