Painted Field

This is what happens when you boost vibrance, saturation, clarity and luminance on an early morning field of Goldenrod.

I decided to have some fun and just play with some extreme settings. At first I just wanted to draw out more color from the sky, but then I saw I was getting an oil-painting quality out of the weeds and kept going – adjusting for an overall pleasant look to that end.

I kind of like it. It’s not typically what I would choose to do and I almost didn’t pick this photograph to upload at all, but decided I liked it enough to include it.

Back from vacation

I ended up on an extended vacation of about 10 days. I would have like to have taken my mobile photo lab to continue to post daily, but in a way, it was nice to take a true vacation. I enjoyed seeing many old friends of mine, but am also glad to be back to take and post more photos.

Frozen dew thawing in the morning light

This was take at the Springfield Bog in Ohio. This was on my latest trip before sunrise. That day was cold enough that everything was covered in dew that froze ovenight. It was really cool to see everything coated in frozen droplets of water.

I actually had no idea. This post might actually be flagged as posting on August 20th, but th 19th is World Photography Day.

I wanted to squeeze in an extra post and photo, since I just figured this out.

I woke up before sunrise – while the world was still dark, and shot this in the early, colorful morning light at Springfield Bog in Ohio.

I was very tired, but later very happy I got up and went. The light was fantastic! I took many photos and may post others from this location, but need to review them – and there’s lots of them.
