Photos from my various adventures

  • About this site

    I use this site for several purposes. It serves as a very convenient way for me to share my photos with other people: family, friends, and strangers alike. It also gives me a place to critique my own work to try to learn what works and what doesn't as well as getting feedback from visitors.

    That being said, I hope you enjoy my pictures and tolerate my occasional ramblings. If you would like larger scale versions of any of these pictures, just leave a comment or shoot me an email.

This was taken last night out by the duck pond.  I really liked the way the wispy clouds looked and tried to compose a good shot with them in it.  It turned out pretty nicely.  There’s a good amount of symmetry along the line of clouds, with the clouds on each side of the center seeming to point out to the upper corners of the picture.  I tried to put the tall tree in the middle of the cloud bank to line up with the bulge at the center.  Unfortunately, I couldn’t get the tree to appear any higher, since if I had taken another couple of steps forward I would have been in the water and if I had lowered the camera any more, there would have been too many plants in the foreground, though I do like that I managed to include the tops of them in the shot.  The colors are nice, and the reflection turned out pretty good as well.
