ImageSpotlight: Reflection Bridge

This image may be difficult to truly appreciate given the size for internet viewing. It’s a panorama stitched from 5 different images. The day was extremely still and that allowed the capture of a mirror-like reflection of this bridge. Given the pale blue sky, I decided to minimize it in the image so that the focus of attention would remain on the bridge.

Until next time, good light and keep shooting. –KEVIN

ImageSpotlight: A Fall Scenic

Today I had the opportunity to get out and photograph in the afternoon so I ventured to a local park in search of a Fall scenic. The area where I live is not known for its extreme fall colors (need to drive about 3 hours North) but compared to where I just moved from, seeing any shades of red/orange/yellow is a welcomed sight.

I had no specific goals in mind on this afternoon shoot; a part of me simply wanted, one could argue needed, to get out into the natural environment. Thus, I grabbed my camera/tripod, a general purpose walk-around lens (ef-s 15-85mm), and challenged myself to capture an inspiring image. As I enjoyed the fall sights, sounds, and pine-filled scent in the air, I came across this lake and was instantly drawn by the bridge, warm colors, and reflections in the water. Once I found the perspective I wanted, I composed the image. It was a great way to spend an afternoon.

Until next time, good light and keep shooting. — KEVIN
