Challenge – Framing

This challenge had to do with “framing” your photos.  Using something natural, or otherwise, to block out the focus of what you wanted focused on. 

I am NOT good at it!

But here is what I got.

The least framed one, this sun flair, yet one of my faves, because – well – sun flair!!

This was my first attempted (above) at using something natural to frame what you want to focus on.  Nature isn’t always your friend.  But I left it in the collection as while not good, it does force you to think harder to get better at your craft.

Overlooking the town of – Bath, NH.  Looking thru two trees.  Putting forth a challenge is fun, gives you the motivation to go out and “try” new things. 

Onto the next!

Emerald Pond/Mt Washington –08-23-2019

Off I went to Emerald Pond.  Had there been more sun I think the photos would have come out better.  I then took a jaunt up Mt. Washington but no views at the top!  Completely clouded over.

Such a cool spot, and there are fish as well, and its deep! Not that I went swimming!

I could have sat here all day.

Such a cool drive, and while it challenges the hell out of my MD, I do it anyway.  A mile from the top it was a solid cloudbase.  I went up and there was not a view to be had!

I picked up a funko pop figure of the Green Arrow! While I was in Boston.  I took him out of the box – I know, sacrilege, right!  And he came with me to, well, Emerald Pond – Emerald Archer…. Emerald Pond…..

Sunset–08-18-2019

On the way home from Boston, via Portland – I saw the clouds and the sky changing so I pulled over and voila!

August Challenge! Bokeh

Bokeh: the visual quality of the out-of-focus areas of a photographic image, especially as rendered by a particular lens.

Sounds easy right? 

NOT!  This was a bit more challenging for me than I had anticipated.  The sun has to be right, the focus has to be “just” right.  I didn’t succeed perfectly but I did get a few good snaps.

Back Yard Beauty and Mizpah–8-6-2019

We sent up to Mizpah for a short walk with Archer.  He is not always a fan of riding in the truck.

Cherry Mountain–7-24-2019

Oh Cherry Mountain!  Nice hike on a very hot day, shady and comfortable hike.  A few steep spots however.  Worth the trek!

IMG_6942IMG_6930IMG_6933IMG_6936IMG_6938IMG_6939IMG_6940IMG_6941

Of course, I hunted out the mushrooms.  As well as how the great shafts of light were hitting the ground.  Never know what you will find and make for a great picture.

Mr. Frog jumped over my boots so I thought I’d take his picture.  He didn’t sit still for very long, however. 

IMG_6971IMG_6967IMG_6968IMG_6969IMG_6977IMG_6970

The views!  You cannot beat the views, can you?  ‘nuff said.

Wonder Woman! 

I have several trinkets that I carry with me.  Wonder Woman is one of them.  I thought I’d give a nice perspective shot a try. 

Covered Bridge–7-12-2019

After work, I decided to go out galivanting.  I came across a covered bridge.

I like the above picture, framing it was fun, since there were cars whizzing by me at times.

Some of the reflections in the water were stellar that day!  As well as the clouds that came in.

Capturing flowing water in the full sun, without an ND filter, is a fun task.  I had to do a lot of fiddling with my settings.
