This was taken on a hike in Sedona. You can see all of this part of the city and the shadows of the clouds over the rock formations. The colours in the rocks always amaze me, as I don’t see much of that were I live. The greenery around compliments the red rock very well.
This is a shot of my most recent vacation to Maine. It was pretty cloudy the whole time we were there but it was still really nice. There is a small river that comes in and out with tide in this picture and it is quite fun to swim in. The beach drops off very quickly so you can dive in from the beach. It is neat to see and sit on the beach facing the river instead of the Atlantic Ocean.
The only interesting photos I have right now are of my travels so that is all that I am able to show right now, but I hope you all enjoy them. Anyways, this is a shot I got where the small hill and the sunset perfectly lined up and I got a really cool angle with the sun just above the hill and a reflection all along the lake. The colours of the sky were also very nice. This was taken on a canoe trip with Scouts at some point, I don’t remember much beyond that.
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 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 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.
