Sit Back And Relax

Sit Back And Relax

I have continued to explore the archives after finding so many shots I never edited. This is another one and my jaw honestly hit my desk. It’s a gorgeous image and there was no way I wasn’t going to publish it. I took this photo when I was in Delray Beach, Florida a few years ago. I was using my Olympus EM1 and the very new Olympus 12-40 2.8 lens. I know exactly why I didn’t publish this before. There…

Ominous Clouds

Ominous Clouds

This was a typical view for me in Panama City when I was shooting there. Nothing but storm clouds rolling in over the city. Coming in from the ocean and then just hanging there over the city. I debated on doing this one in monochrome but it works as color as you get a bit more separation of the city and a better layered effect creating distinct areas in the image. I masked in bits here and there to just…

3 Friends In The Evening

3 Friends In The Evening

Hello from Fort Myers, Florida where I am based for the next week. A couple days ago was the first time I got out to shoot. My first shoot was interrupted by a torrential downpour which is common in Florida this time of the year. My second shoot that evening perfect. The biggest for the night shoot was mosquitoes using my body as an all you can eat buffet. Oh, and the occasional heat lightening while carrying a tripod! Wandered…

Grey Dawn and Silent Cannons

Grey Dawn and Silent Cannons

This was shot on the Manassas Battlefield just as dawn had really set in and the light wasn’t going to get much better than the grey that was already in the sky. I was going to do this image in monochrome but I just wasn’t getting the tonal separation I wanted. After thinking about it for a minute I saw that the washed out color that was there gave me separation and a sense of distance and scale that monochrome…

Flowers Squared

Flowers Squared

The beloved flowers return. These were shot at Brookside Gardens during my foray there. Nothing fancy just me and the Nikon D810 with a Sigma 24-105 4.0 lens. I’ll be truthful about not really wanting to edit much so I picked the flowers since I can knock them out in a hurry. I did the edits in Lightroom and only did a bit of the old dodge and burn in Photoshop. I will admit to the fact that I maybe did…

Heading To Shore

Heading To Shore

This is another one from the National Harbor. I was on a path that leads to somewhere but I stopped when it was going to go through a tunnel under the freeway. My objective was the National Harbor area and not wandering down paths. It just happened that when I snapped this the dragon boat was heading in toward the shore area and I thought it looked cool in the image. I have the same image without it but I…

Dusk On The Water

Dusk On The Water

This was shot off a pier at the National Harbor. This is one of the water taxis (rather evident) that ply the water between Old Town Alexandria across the river in Virginia. The bring people back and forth between the Maryland and VA side and on days the Washington Nationals play they also take passengers to the DC side close to the stadium (so I have been told).  I shot this one after if finished dropping passengers off at the…

Drips and Drops

Drips and Drops

It’s been raining here in the Washington DC area the last few days. The usual thunderstorms as the weather tries to figure out what the hell it wants to do. Since I walk to and from work and have a camera I figured why not shoot some of the drops I see when I am walking in. Plus it gives me an excuse of not to rush in and sit in my office for a bit longer. All these images…
