Covered Bridge in Gettysburg…

One of the more beautiful covered bridges I have seen….not that I have seen many.  The setting surrounding this particular bridge has been well preserved since it is in the Gettysburg battlefield.  Everything in and around Gettysburg is well preserved and it will always remain that way since the powers that be in that town […]

Frozen beauty…

There was a great author that once mused “whose woods are these…”. I don’t know why we are so rushed that we pass by the mundane beauty that surrounds us everyday.  The little things that normally wouldn’t even warrant your attention are the things that grab me and hold me in their grasp.  For they […]

Birds of a feather flock together…

I found this scene too good too pass up….birds of a feather and all! Lol. The wind was blowing pretty hard and all the birds were on the dock facing into the wind so their feathers wouldn’t get ruffled….another cheap cliche. Sometimes I just can’t help myself…goofy humor.  It really did make for a great […]

Patience is the word for this weekend…

I have two stories of patience to add today.  I went on a solitaire photo shoot while my husband was working on Saturday. I say it was a lesson in patience because I got within 6 feet of a Great Blue Heron.  He let me get that close because as I was creeping up on […]

In a calm moment of patience….

In one of my calmer moments, which we will attribute to a momentary, if not abnormal, moment of patience, I allowed my husband to teach me a new process in our photo editing software.  When used in small increments it will preserve the edges in your digital photographs, but when you turn up the intensity […]

Isn’t it funny the things that change your perspective…

This is the picture that sparked my enthusiasm for photography…it was the most ordinary of days, I was alone and trying to find something to inspire me….who knew it would be a rusty old tractor on the edge of a field. A forgotten relic of another time.  I almost didn’t see the possibilities this shot […]

Improving your craft is not a black and white issue.

This one of my attempts at black and white processing.  It is actually my first attempt. I think it is very reminiscent of Ansel Adams in the composition. But the processing is too contrasty for his work, which gives it a very me flair. It is a very striking image when matted in a double […]

Defining the artist!

In the exploration of me, I am defining what I want to do with my life. The older I get the more I define what I do want to do with the exclusion clause, which simply put, goes like this; “well, now that I have tried that…I KNOW I don’t want to do that”.  I […]

Changing the Colors…

[singlepic id=20 w=320 h=240 float=] If you cannot lead the horse to the water then bring the water to it.  I am not a programmer, so code is not my forte.  I am stuck with the color scheme this wordpress theme gave me to work with.  I like the overall feel of this theme and […]

The depth of a forest!

When the beauty of nature surrounds you there is no scarcity of subjects to choose from when choosing a picture subject! But trees are one of the more spectacular choices that nature provides.  I don’t think you can go wrong with a picture when it is a tree. I tried numerous times to draw a […]
