Thursday and Friday

Here are a couple of images taken in the last two days...

the yellowish colored image was taken using a Singh-Ray blue/gold polarizer..I have not had much luck with this filter except in winter on ice or frozen brooks..that is fog in the background out at sea.

This is the Scituate Reservoir taken toward sunset..not a good night sky, but a few good clouds and interesting light..but I have seen
much better in this was still fun to try
to make the best of what the weather gave me.

Morning with a lot of mist and humidity; it makes for a few interesting images..I love the effect of fog in the distance, especially when trees are involved..

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday

There are three days represented here because I have slacked off on my uploading to the blog..the idea of posting a daily image is not easy because many of the images I take in the morning are just not very good..
these are the best of that lot of mediocre images..but it is such a challenge to carry a point and shoot on walks with Ralph and try to compose on the fly.

Stormy Friday

Stormy morning..with high winds and rain, but a few good moments to take some this Canon G9..just the right size to take in my pocket, yet it gives me some great images with acceptable dynamic range..most of the time it is necessary to use the Manual setting, as it gives me the best results..but it requires me to make a lot of changes to ISO and shutter/aperture settings..but that's part of the fun.

Thursday morning

Today wasn't a good day shooting..the light didn't seem right and the images weren't very good..this is probably the best one taken this morning...I used a slight blur to soften the color...

Today's image is taken at the reservoir near my house...the sky looked like it might be amazing at sunset, and it was...

Here is today's image..taken on an overcast morning with the Canon G9..this camera has been great for a point and shoot style camera; it will even shoot raw images plus has a neutral density filter option available...the new G12 has an LCD screen that will pull out and rotate making it easier to take macro shots in difficult spots...but the G9 is great, too...and can be purchased for a lot less money.

Daily image

I'm going to push myself to shoot a daily image, worthy of posting, won't be easy some days but it will be a challenge to push myself beyond my current capabilities; and force myself to create more interesting compositions until I can return to the Canadian Rockies...this is the first one today, with more to come...
