Lighting was perfect. Hard to tell where the pier touches the water and the reflection begins.

Another day in paradise!
Landscape Photography – Reflections
There is something to be said about timing! I was taking my dog for a walk and happened to stumble upon one of the most beautiful water reflections I have seen in quite some time. The lighting and still water reflected the clouds and boat slips magically. This photo was taken with a Samsung cell phone. It would have been perfect timing if I had my Sony camera with me lol!!
Landscape Photography – Before & After
It’s been a while since I have done photo editing on my tablet. Thought this photo would be a good test revisiting the Adobe Lightroom app. Was pleasantly surprised.
Travel Photography – Lighting
Most of us when we travel and are touring do not have the luxury of bringing a tripod or time to change our camera settings for the tricky lighting conditions. I found when in indoors the best way to capture lit up scenes is with my cell phone. It seems to work far better than my mirrorless camera. These photographs were taken in Crystal Onyx Cave in Cave City, KY. Some of the most beautiful formations I have ever seen.
Flower Photography – Just Go With It!
One can’t control the change in weather, but one can control the shoot! The day this photograph was taken started out sunny, warm with no breeze. Quickly it turned incredibly windy. I was all set to pack it in when I decided to just go with it! Knowing that the odds were very slim of capturing a completely sharp image, or any decent image for that matter. I set the shutter speed to 1/320 sec. to compensate for the flower’s movement by the wind. Then I watched the flower petals rise and sway, picked a focal point, and had some fun!
Mobile Photography & Editing
This photo was taken with an Iphone 6 and processed with the mobile app Snapseed. The app allows you to mask, add layers through the double exposure tool and edit your photo with a variety tools that most computer software programs offer. It will also process RAW photos.
If you are looking to have some fun on the run, I would recommend taking the time to learn this app!
Photography – After the Snow Storm
SNOW: “It is the life of the crystal, the architect of the flake, the fire of the frost, the soul of the sunbeam. This crisp winter air is full of it. ” John Burroughs
The Chicago area was under a blizzard warning last night. The wind was blowing so strong and the snow was really coming down. It was a winter wonderland. As much as I dread the snow, it always amazes me how beautifully it drapes nature after the storm.
