Tried to capture the un-predicted Christmas snow, but was having issues with the lighting. When I stepped back a couple of steps, the window, the tree and the plant made for an unplanned frame, and naturally silhouette effect.
Under the weeping cherry tree(?)
I walked by this tree dozens of times, and never realized how spacious and gorgeous it was inside, behind the veils of flowers, wispy branches and new leaves.. this day, I had to investigate. And I loved how the fallen petals were making a soft carpet. This was a public park, but I was soo tempted to make it my secret quiet spot!
The Bridge @ the Township Park
This bridge was only about 50 yards or less from the tree. I would often rest a few moments here and take in the soothing sounds of the creek. But this excursion was planned for photo taking. I was trying play around with the angles. My daughter does this so effortlessly, I’m still learning!
First entry for this challenge were pics previously taken. But this one sparked an interest to shoot intentionally. Yesterday morning, I took the camera along with me for the 2 mile walk I was braving, literally for the first hour the day to hopefully beat the heat. *Ha! It got cooler as that hour went on as I heated up.
Take 2 – The first shots were a little rough, but the colors were cool as I started up the first small facing directly towards the rising sun. The I had to make a right and couldn’t see much past the corn stalks. Once I hit the next intersection, things started to lighten up and taking pictures got a little easier… until the camera started doing something it’s never done before…
first color, corn stalks, and an accidental flash

TAKE – 3 Not long after reading the challenge post, I drove past our church that evening in the city and was taken by how the evening sunlight cast long beautiful shadows upon the lawns of the cemetery behind it and I thought, oh I should have brought my camera. But I remembered it with Tues evening when I was back. These were taken through or just over the fence. I wanted to go in and get up the hill, which over looks the city, but I kept getting interrupted and missed my opportunity.
