Layered Sunset

Layered Sunset

This was shot off my balcony in Thailand. I happened to have my Nikon D5500 with the 55-200 lens on it and aimed it towards the beach. With the crop on the D5500 I get a more reach with that lens then I do with any other and it’s light and sharp. Using portrait orientation worked better for this image because I got the layering effect of the sky along with the buildings. It provides some visual interest that landscape…

Under The Bridge And Golden

Under The Bridge And Golden

Shot from the Route 41 bridge in Fort Myers, Florida. No idea what the real bridge name is but I do know the road name so going with that. This was shot a couple years ago. It was meant to be HDR when I was just learning about it. So I had 7 images to stack which would have introduced so much noise that it wasn’t worth the effort. The image being published is just a single image. It’s amazing…

Upon Reflection

Upon Reflection

This series was shot while I was at Lakes Regional Park in Fort Myers, Florida. When I went there I was hoping to get sunset type photos but the trees were blocking my view of the sun which I wasn’t used to because I had been shooting along the river. With the light dropping and not getting sunsets I adapted and started to shoot the islandsĀ and their reflections on the water. It turned out to be one of the longer…

Vertical Rising

Vertical Rising

I had a tip on a park located about 30 minutes away from where I was staying in Fort Myers. The park was called Lakes Regional Park so I headed there around sunset so I could get some evening shots over the lake. One of the problems is that the West view was blocked by trees and housing so I was a bit late for the really good sunset photos but I made do and ended up shooting for a…

Masts At Sunset

Masts At Sunset

I likely should not have edited this photo but I will admit to being a bit emotionally attached to it because in my mind it looked cool. I just liked how the ships masts work with the setting sun. The other little bits in the photo catching the light also drew me to it. They all can’t be winners and sometimes you go with an image just because you like it. This is not HDR believe it or not. I…

Shadow On The Potomac

Shadow On The Potomac

I almost didn’t edit this photo. After working a 12 hour day and having a blinding headache I just wanted to pass out and go to sleep when I returned to my abode. However, after a dinner with my staff after a successful project and walking home in a brisk snow pelting me in the face I sat in front of the computer and carried on! I saw the shadow the cloud cast on the shadow and thought it looked…

Missing The Sun And The Sand

Missing The Sun And The Sand

As I edited this picture I had spent the day walking in the pouring rain as I was making my way back home after having to go to DC in the morning. This is after being jammed into subway cars going to and from and dealing with mechanical delays with the subway system. I would rather be on shooting on a beach in Thailand as the sunset and know that the city you see in the distance has a cold…

Commuter Skies

Commuter Skies

I walk to work now! Weird to be excited by that but considering my commute could be anywhere 30 minutes to an hour or more depending on traffic. Now my commute if I walked earnestly is 10 minutes. It’s usually around 30 because as you can guess by the title of this that I am puttering around taking photos. Occasionally (once a week) I have to deal with a detour to the local bar for $5 beers. So in all…

Down The Fishing Pier

Down The Fishing Pier

The image I attempted for Friday finally got down after a few hours of editing and more layer masks then I ever thought was possible. A plethora of third party tools were also used to get this image to where it is. Not 100% happy but never am. There are some issues with it but I’ll leave it up to others to find them. The sun was setting to my left and I really wanted that reflected in the water…
