Quiet On The River

Quiet On The River

It’s strange that for a place I hated I have gotten a lot of great images out of it. The Edison & Ford Winter Estates were not worth the $20 admission, I could see $5 or $10 but $20 for an unguided tour was too much. Still, I have gotten a lot of nice images out of it so I can’t complain too much. For this image I went with a softer feel to it. Sure the water and sky…

I have taken a similar shot before and did it in monochrome. This time I used a neutral density filter and shot it using different exposures.

With the rainy season here the clouds have rolled in daily and these are early afternoon clouds. Enjoy.

Pylons To The River

Pylons To The River

Stopped at the Edison & Ford Winter Estates which I highly recommend missing. For the $20 entrance fee you don’t get a whole lot and half of it was closed for renovations. For the extra $5 you get herded like cattle through the extra guided tour. I personally wandered around by myself and did my thing and was out of there in a little over an hour. This shot was near the riverĀ and of course it was roped off so…
