Tulips – Part 1

Tulips – Part 1

I shot this series of images when the tulips were in full bloom. The series was shot between Brookside Gardens in Maryland and Meadowlark Gardens in Virginia. When I was taking these image I didn’t have a filter that fit my lens. I would have used a 3 stop neutral density to cut down on some of the light since I shot them just before midday. You can fix some of it in Photoshop but it’s never going to look…

Spring Tree – Part 3

Spring Tree – Part 3

This series was shot at two locations on back-to-back days. They were taken at Brookside Gardens and Meadowlark Gardens. I was playing with the Nikon D5500 and had my Sigma 24-105 on the camera. I am on travel this week as I start the final part of my journey as I move to Thailand. With all the travel I have done all the editing in one shot. I am preloading all the posts for the week so I can focus…

Splashes of Color

Splashes of Color

Shot this in April at Brookside Gardens on a visit there. I went there with a new camera and to shoot something else but ended up doing a few series over a few days. I indicated I was shooting a bunch of stuff. So when it came to edit I just went ahead and picked out some images that show splashes of color. These just broke up the predominate color hence the title. I have no idea what any these…

In The Shadows Of Trees

In The Shadows Of Trees

Took this at Brookside Gardens in April when things were just starting to get their leaves and flowers were blooming. I was shooting with my Nikon D5500 and no tripod. One of the things I have tried to train myself to do is not to rely on my tripod. If there is enough light I really don’t need it. I just tended to use it even though at times it was more of a hinder than a help. Nothing fancy…

Spring Gazebo

Spring Gazebo

This was shot at Brookside Gardens. There are a few of these gazebos around the gardens but they are never used. If you are looking for a quiet place then I suggest using one as they are never busy. This was shot last year when I first got my Nikon D810. I like to play the game of randomly clicking on my photo library and see what comes up. I have so many images that I never processed that this…

Nature Squared – Part 2

Nature Squared – Part 2

Here is the second installment of nature squared. This was also shot in Brookside Gardens but on the lake part for lack of better description. This set is going to be a bit different. The previous set was more landscape based and there are elements of that in this set. This one is more abstract in the way I shot it. The theme is there in that it’s all nature but the it’s not going to be as in your…

The Gate

The Gate

I believe this is a Korean style gate/arch. I don’t know 100% but there are lots of Korean memorials throughout Brookside Gardens so it would be logical that is is Korean. I really like Asian architecture and style. I’m content wandering through a Buddhist Temple in Thailand. Even if you have seen one temple you have seen them all there is always a bit of a surprise. You will stumble across Chinese temples that are part of the Buddhist one…

Nature Squared – Part 1

Nature Squared – Part 1

I was intending to go back to the series I was attempting to edit last week. Instead I ended up with 3 different series but I think it worked out ok. These images are from Brookside Gardens shot last year in the fall. I had missed the peak leaves time with my travel to Vegas but I still managed to get some leaves. I was really testing my Sony RX10 that I had purchased. I was just wandering around shooting…
