Photo Friday: Back Drops

September 8, 2017

Sometimes, humid mornings bring out more than spider webs, and foggy lenses.  This particular morning, the humidity had left some water drops on the back of two Japanese beetles, which brought out the color on their wings.

I just love how the clouds have a touch of color from the morning sun.

First Look Photo: Contrast of Fall

November 16, 2016

Every year nature puts on a show, with the leaves changing color.  Many of the tourists of Summer will stick around just to watch the leaves change in Fall.  It’s also the time for photographers to get amazing landscapes.  I personally love the contrasts the leaf change brings out.

Today’s picture is one of those “contrast” pictures.  I love how the brightly colored leaves are in direct opposition to the colorless texture of the fallen tree trunk.  I feel this contrast adds drama to an uneventful picture of a tree trunk.

Photo Friday: A Touch of Color

October 21, 2016

Overall, this year’s color changing season has been anticlimactic, but individual trees have had brilliant changes.  In today’s shot, I wanted to show the texture of the tree, and fence, with a little of that brilliant fall color.

Photo Friday: Fun for all Ages

July 1, 2016

June 26th was a great day to photograph an event.  It was the day of the South Portland Color Run.  You don’t have to be a top athlete to participate.  I saw entrants as young as 3, and as old as 78.  My purpose was to get pictures of the event, and I ended up with 900 pictures.  Out of all those pictures, I chose today’s picture because it shows the fun of the race and how friendly it is to all ages.

Color Poppin!!!

So early in the spring, and the colors are really starting to pop out, like with the yellow flowers on this tree.  I’ve tried to look it up, but I don’t recognize the flowers.

Splash of Color

 

In this world of Winter

When things look black and white,

I wish I could see a splash of color

And make everything alright.
