Spiritual Tree

Spiritual Tree

This is a spirit tree a very common sight around South East Asia. If you look you will see them constantly if you are paying attention. This one was in a Chinese temple. I could not begin to figure out why there is a motorcycle helmet on the tree except there were motorbikes parked behind me. I’ll just leap to a logical conclusion on that. Enjoy.

My Evening View

My Evening View

If the weather is decent I’m usually gifted a spectacular sunset since I live on the Gulf of Thailand and my condo looks out over it. Being on the 12th floor of a 15 story condo pays off in this case so I took this shot. I have been leaning more and more on my Nikon D5500 for shots. It’s light, I have 3 lenses that cover every range and did I mention it’s light? Even compared to my mirrorless…

Landscapes From The Naples Zoo

Landscapes From The Naples Zoo

While I was at the Naples Zoo I snuck in a few landscape type photos. Well, close enough to landscape to count in my world. I feel more comfortable doing these edits because I have kept my hand in shooting them even if I didn’t publish them. I have been editing furiously while I am here in Florida. When I get back I will start publishing some of the older stuff I have shot. It will be a mix of…

Just Like Animals

Just Like Animals

More from the Naples Zoo! It also helps I stole the title from a Maroon 5 song called Animals. It’s a sad day when I know Maroon 5 lyrics meaning I have lived in Thailand too long where you hear it frequently in the bars. Plus as I have been told Adam Levine is dreamy. I’ll take it on the ladies words. For the record I am not a wildlife photographer and I know some of these images are less…

Monkeying Around

Monkeying Around

More from the Napels Zoo visit I did late last year. The bulk of these were shot on a boat as you cruise around the islands where all the monkeys are kept. Shooting from a boat and the monkeys being so far away made it a bit of a challenge. Least I could use autofocus instead of having to manually focus. I did have my 24-240mm lens on the camera which helped. It should also be noted that I fixed…

Birds Of A Feather

Birds Of A Feather

I am back in the US visiting from Thailand. I am still here in the US so taking some of the time a trip was scheduled to the Naples Zoo. Not being a wildlife photographer and having to shoot through cages made things interesting. I was in manual focus for a good chunk of these images. Factor in moving animals and me in too low of an ISO made thing less then perfect but good enough to share out! Enjoy

The Lone Cloud

The Lone Cloud

Was just standing on shore and saw this scene and figured why not take a picture. The single clouds was the dominating object in the image but there was so much else that I just liked the total scene. I am not 100% sure where I took this image. I know I had my Sigma 17-70 on my Nikon D5500 but that’s about it. I believe I was near the Bali Hai but don’t quote me as I was wandering…

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…

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…

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…
