I don’t go home every weekend, since when Julia works, I hardly see her. So this weekend I decided to go “riding” around. I hit up Ellsworth and a few other places, and of course, stopped to take pictures.
There are a few settings (the CA) one that I’m finally getting into – and many of the pictures come out like the above, almost oil painting like – I like it
As you can see, I was out “all” day. I must say, I’ll miss this area.
There are just some nights where you know the sky is going to light up.
I’ve been teasing around more with my settings – so that I have to edit less afterwards. I think its working.
I love dark and light – and photographing an object against the light – but its not always to find. I got lucky when I was running around the island this night and found a simple dock post with rope just hanging from it. Perfect.
I have to admit, the lovely sunsets here are just breathtaking! All the time!
I got off early from work today (whoohoo) so instead of going to the gym (inside) I went hiking (outside) because it’s the last week of Sept and it was almost 80!
The colors are starting to come in here, down state – I love orange leaves…..
Everyone is going to think I’ve a thing for mushrooms, I don’t – however! they are great to start learning the macro settings on my camera on
Moss – really, gorgeous!
This guy was nice enough to stay still for a few pics
Fog rolling in!
My childhood friend, Melissa, aka Mac, came to the Island this weekend. She too, has a lovely Canon Rebel and we spent all of Saturday running around taking pictures – here are mine
The village of Stonington, Maine is just – well – breathtaking
Playing with the macro attachments!
Perspective! AKA Belly time!
I dragged Mac over to Barred Island and we spent some fun time tripping over roots and checking out shadows and light
Macro! I never realized how pretty moss was.
I started playing with my F settings and exposure – a few of my photos were “washed” out – however, I was able to recover much of it with my photo editor.
This is how the sun hits pink granite on the – macro of x7
I saw this mushroom – and instantly I thought of the Smurfs – then I get up and Mac said the same thing. It’s amazing how sometimes we think alike!
To end the day (Before food that is!) we hit up Sand Beach – tide was still high – but it was still a breathtaking sight to see.
A picture is worth 1000 words
