Spot The Carp

Spot The Carp

Taken at Meadowlark Gardens earlier in the spring when I was there doing the other spring shots. This image is one of those that I don’t know why I like it but I do. The carp swimming buy just adds that little something to an otherwise boring image. I was just standing there and could see them swimming by so when one came into the frame I fired off a few shots to capture the image. Editing I am still…

Pond Bridge

Pond Bridge

I have likely published a photo of this bridge more than a few times before. When you like a subject you keep shooting it. This is a bridge at Meadowlark Gardens in Fairfax, Virginia. Strangely enough I always went back to Meadowlark Gardens even when I moved to Maryland. Not that it was a far drive, it just happened to be a place I frequented because it was the first real “shoot” I did with a camera. Was my Canon…

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…

On The Bench

On The Bench

These were all shot at Meadowlark Gardens while I was shooting the early spring stuff. While they could have gone with those images I felt they stood on their own with their own theme. Still on travel, in fact as this goes live I’ll be on my final leg of my flight to Thailand. So hello from the future since this was all preloaded. Editing was my standard Lightroom and Photoshop workflow. Enjoy.

Fountain Fun

Fountain Fun

This was taken at Meadowlark Gardens in the early Spring when I was out wandering around with my camera. I have shot a similar image before of just the fountain. This time I just handheld the camera and watched the shutter speed. With the sunlight being as bright as it was it wasn’t a big deal to freeze the water coming off the fountain. The Nikon D5500 is one of those cameras you don’t really need a tripod with because…

Enjoying The Day

Enjoying The Day

Shot this one at Meadowlark Gardens as I was wrapping up. Just saw the elderly couple sitting on the bench and took the photo as I was standing back. Meadowlark Gardens was the first place I ever took a camera to. It was a Canon XSi and I think I had a 18-55mm lens on it. Pretty much every camera I have ever owned has been used in the park. It was a fertile testing ground for cameras and lenses….

Park Bridge

Park Bridge

This is a bridge at Meadowlark Gardens. There are a few of them over the various ponds in the park. This is just a random shot I took while I was playing with the Nikon D5500. I didn’t go with any real plan to Meadowlark Gardens. I shot the limited shots I wanted and then just took a wander. The one thing I regretted was not having a polarizing filter on my lens. I could not find it before I…
