Wat Ounalom Monastery

Wat Ounalom Monastery

I was in Cambodia last month just to get out of Thailand for a bit. I generally try and disappear from Thailand periodically to have a holiday from my holiday as I call it. It’s not every person that can say they wake up to a view of the Gulf of Thailand as their daily view. During my time in Phnom Penh this time it pissed down daily. We are talking torrential rains for several hours. When it wasn’t doing…

Wat Phnom

Wat Phnom

I shot these last year when I was in Phnom Penh for a couple weeks. Wat Phnom is the main temple everyone goes to if they are in Phnom Penh. It’s a mixture of a tourist trap and a local temple. There is an entrance fee of $1 (Cambodia uses the US Dollar) but you can easily just step over the rope and avoid paying it. I saw a lot of cheap ass tourists doing this, it is a dollar…

One More Sunset

One More Sunset

Shot this the same time as yesterday’s sunset. Bit of a different view from yesterdays as this is in landscape format and pointed at a different section of sky. While I use my Nikon D810 and my Sony’s for professional stuff now, I use my little Nikon D5500 for a lot of other stuff and with the crop sensor and the 55-200 lens it makes it a great combo that is light and gives you a lot of reach. I…

Bridge In The Clouds

Bridge In The Clouds

Took this while I was in Florida on Estero Bay near Fort Myers. Was on a boat in the middle of the day. Sadly this is one of these place holder images I do that should be apart of a series but I haven’t had time. Since moving to Thailand I have been busy with so many other things that editing has taken second place. This time I had to edit photos for someone else on a quick turn around….

Light On A Storm

Light On A Storm

This was shot while the storm was doing its thing. In Fort Myers, it’s not uncommon to see strong sunlight while it is storming at the same time. This was taken with my Sigma 17-80mm which is an amazing lens. I did a lot of research while looking for a good video lens to use with the D5500. After a doing all the research I ended up with the Sigma Art lens which has image stabilization. It’s not constant aperture…

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…

Vertically Natured

Vertically Natured

Since I was in the archives with the Portland, Oregon photo from yesterday I figured why not see what else was there. For the flower lover(s) out there I clicked on the stuff I shot at the Portland Rose Gardens. It’s strange what I will and will not let through anymore. I know these images aren’t great. Still, I figured why not.┬áSometimes you need to let go and just go with what you want. I know there are flaws in…

Cutting Through

Cutting Through

This is from Great Falls earlier this year when I went out for a New Year’s hike with my Sony A7R and a polarizing filter. The weather was nice and it wasn’t that crowded so it was a pleasant day out. One of the things I have been late to the game with has been polarizing filters. Sure, you can somewhat reproduce the results with editing software but there is still something about a good polarizing filter that makes an…

Dawn Over Silent Cannon

Dawn Over Silent Cannon

This is another one from Antietam Battlefield. Was on the field near the visitor’s center with the Blue Ridge Mountains in the distance and the sun just starting to rise. This is another example of an image that was meant for HDR that just wasn’t going to work. HDR just creates too many variables into the image that make it difficult to get a solid, finish image. There are little things that drive me nuts with objects not aligning. Weird…

Signs Of Spring

Signs Of Spring

With yesterday being the military hardware photo not being that popular I’ll go┬áback to a landscape shot. I needed to test a camera so I ventured forth to Brookside Gardens. I ventured out to Brookside Gardens to test a Nikon D5500 I picked up for video. The flip out screen is nice so I can see what I am shooting if I am in front of the camera. I figured since I was testing I might as well do some…
