Watching Fall

I’m sure I’m not alone among photographers at this time of year, who are out seeking unique compositions that depict the season. Rainy and wet conditions in SW Virginia are helping in that regard.

Raindrops under these small red berries make this composition special.

Sunrises can be Special

Photographers love sunrise and sunset photo opportunities because of the special light and vibrant colors. I’ve made many that are very unique in that regard. Clearly “keepers.” But the simple photo I made a few mornings ago made me feel “peaceful“ after I downloaded it into Lightroom on my iPad. It isn’t that great, but I need scenes like this to put my mind in order, as we continue to be stressed during 2020.

Dead Tree

While wandering about the edge of a wooded area I came upon a fallen dead tree that was potentially blocking my way. I wasn’t going to walk into the woods so it was no obstacle, but it was a nice photo opportunity … especially the way sunlight was filtering through overhead tree limbs.
