Seasons

From Clouds to Sun

Posted on Updated on

These were made on the same day – it was the first warm day of the spring, before the ice formations melted (those photos are forthcoming). The second photo has a strange, but intentional focal point – I’m still unsure about how I feel about it 🙂 The first photo was near Cana Lighthouse in Door County, and the second photo was made at Cave Point County Park, also Door County. small_MG_0840-Edit small_MG_0556

So I’ve had a few months with my new camera…

Now that I’ve had some time with my new camera, and have been learning all I can about editing in LR/PS CC, I am finally ready to start rolling out a few photos. Let’s start with this one: It didn’t make the cut for submitting to my local camera club’s salon, but I so wanted to use it…maybe I’ll edit it up a bit more and submit it next year.

This photo was taken near Cana Lighthouse in Door County, WI. I sure am enjoying my new Canon 6d 🙂

I couldn’t resist sharing another shot of this photogenic guy. He seems to be contemplating the meaning of Christmas, but really he is just trying to move his face away from the camera. This was taken with my Samsung Note 3 (again – I can’t wait until my new camera arrives!).

Holiday traditions

In the past, I have posted photos from the Christmas tree farm we visit, but for some reason this year was a bit more fun. Perhaps because I am moving on to a new job and life seems so full of possibilities I could burst.

Have you ever taken a step back from yourself to assess your life and suddenly realized how lucky you are? That happened to me this week.

The following photos aren’t particularly special works of art, but the strong sense of peace and love coming from my soul when I made them was very special.

Back in the saddle again

Since it’s been a while, I thought I would go all in and create several posts from photos I’ve taken in the past month. These were all captured on my phone (Samsung Note3 – highly recommend!), but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been working on my camera skills. I’ve been pretty busy with that, and plan to officially launch as a business soon.

This first batch was taken while on a road trip in the western VA/WV area. I absolutely love the mountains and can’t wait to plan my next mountain vacation!

 These were taken at one of my favorite stops in southern Minnesota.

While I love these photos they way they are, I have to admit that I am unsure of the saturation technique I used…
