  • 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.

Fall Pictures

Posted by Ben on October 31, 2010

I know it’s been a while, but here are a few pictures that I’ve taken over the past few weeks.  I’ve been incredibly busy with school and other responsibilities here on campus, that I haven’t really had much time for photography.  I hope to put some more pictures up here in the next few weeks.

The Colors of Fall

Posted by Ben on October 25, 2009


Autumn in Blacksburg can be incredibly stunning.  When the weather cooperates and the temperatures climb into the 60’s it’s hard to keep me locked up indoors all day.  I spent most of the morning catching up on all the sleep I’ve missed this past week, and preparing for next week…After a couple of hours in the library churning out another essay for Professionalism and getting some proofs done for Discrete Math, I came back to the dorm and decided to go out and take some pictures of the beautiful fall colors.  This shot is from the other side of the duck pond, or at least the side I don’t usually take pictures from.  When I came back in from shooting and transferred the pictures from my camera, this one, more than any of the others took my breath away.  So many vivid colors just jumped off of the screen at me.

Like I said above, the colors in this shot were just amazing.  Unfortunately, the sky is washed out in the top right corner and there’s a little bit of lens flare along the right edge.  But those are my only real complaints about the way this turned out.  I maybe should have moved forward just a little to get that branch in the top left out of the picture.  I’d crop it, but then I’d lose most of the blue in the sky :|.  The water of the pond was fairly still for the amount of wind that was blowing this afternoon, but it lets you see pretty clear reflections of the trees around the shore.

I’m not sure how much time I’ll have for blogging this week, but I’ll try to post a picture or two, even if there’s not much of a post to go with it.
