From late October through most of November, the most gorgeous golden light passes through the woods on the side of the road to my house. So far this is the best I’ve done to capture it. Taken back in 2008, only a few months after I bought my first camera, this is also my first attempt at HDR, not half bad if I do say so myself.
Canon EF 24-70 f2.8L
ISO 100, 45mm, f8 @ 1/100
My first thoughts are of Spring, and new growth. But with Winter rapidly approaching, and the snow that will hopefully come with it, the vibrancy of Spring green is a long way off.
However, several of the images below were captured in the dead of winter.
For those of you thinking “I’d like to create amazing photographs but I don’t have a big fancy DSLR.” Take a close look at the image of my friend Melissa sprawled out on the ice. That’s a Canon G11 in her outstretched hands. Now take a look at the images she makes with it, here. I often envy her ability to put all her gear in her pocket when we get together to shoot.
Or as I like to call my morning in the woods getting these images,
Muddy, Bloody, and Wet!
Because I got a little, gave a little, and got some of the last too! I really need to start watching where I’m going!
This is also a first for me I think. This is the first time I’ve gone out to make the photos specifically for the weekly challenge. I’m going to have to do it more often. Hopefully with less blood loss.
So, without further delay…
And something for the “Bug People” out there, you know who you are
