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…
Points if you get the title reference. While I wasn’t thrilled how the last book ended I did think the title was fitting for this image. This is a composite image done with 4 separate images. I haven’t done one in awhile and I figured I might as well test the new Photoshop CC and see how it handled it. There are a few areas where I am not happy but if you get to 80% happiness leave it alone….
I shot this heading back to the mainland from Sanibel Island. My car has a sunroof so I just opened it up and held the Sony RX100 out sunroof and just pushed the button. For having no idea how it was going to turn out and considering the fact I was driving at speed I’m happy with the image. Enjoy
This was shot at the Ding Darling Nature Reserve. Last time I was here I didn’t have a neutral density filter with me. This time I brought my variable neutral density and cranked it up to 10 since I was shooting in the mid-day and went forth and had a great time shooting. I got to areas I didn’t shoot last time and they have viewing points throughout the park so I would walk my tripod to the area and…
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. I did the post processing in HDR but didn’t go to wild with it. I still like the skies here in Fort Myers, Florida. With the rainy season here the clouds have rolled in daily and these are early afternoon clouds. Enjoy.
This is another shot from the Edison & Ford Winter Estates. I happened on this view while discovering everything else was closed and my $20 was spent for naught. The river is the Caloosahatchee and I just like how the shot was framed between the palm trees. Enjoy
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 river and of course it was roped off so…
Going through my photos and realized I missed a large number of photos so I just went ahead and processed them. Enjoy
Can’t really call these landscape photos. So I threw in 3 of them from the various ponds/lakes that dot Meadowlark Gardens. I guess I am into water plants. Enjoy.
I said I was done with the flowers but I didn’t mention the leaves from Meadowlark Gardens. I always like my leaves in monochromatic because you always get details you never see in color. No tools were used in the conversion to monochrome, just done in Lightroom. Then ran through the usual Photoshop filters. Enjoy.
