Sunset Collected

Hello again! I saw a beautiful sunset shaping up, so to speak, and hurried home to get my DSLR and attach the 250mm zoom lens. I wanted to be ready for a closer shot than my iPhone would provide. In my rush, I opted not to spend the extra few minutes to drive down the road and get the power lines out of the shot, so I apologize for that.  I hope you enjoy these. I sure enjoyed watching this sunset evolve through its variations.

Steaming Snow – 52° on January 11

We’ve had a warm-up in Central Indiana in the middle of our cold, snowy winter. Much of the snow is already gone. But as I looked South from my home this morning, I saw steam billowing up from the snow that remains in the shade of the nearby woods. It seems to be rolling quite high – 50-60 feet high is my estimate. I believe the tallest trees in the woods in the background are about 100 feet. The weather report for today predicts a high of 59°. Won’t be much snow left tomorrow.

Have you seen anything like this in your region this morning?

It was sprinkling lightly this morning. The obvious threat of more rain made me wrap up my little photo adventure. This photo documents the water level in the farm ditch as high as I’ve ever seen it in the 10+ years we’ve lived in our current home.

Hi! I captured an interesting shadow pattern when shooting a 360-degree virtual tour photo recently, and I thought I would share it with you. What do you think of this? Have you ever discovered that you accidentally shot something great-looking or visually striking without planning that type of shot?

While in Phoenix, Arizona last month, I enjoyed shooting desert landscapes. For one thing, I had never experienced the American Southwest before. And, since there was often interest at various distances from the camera, the images seem to bring depth to the flat computer screen. I hope you enjoy this one! Thanks for dropping by. –JR

Just wanted to share a photo I captured last November of a beautiful scene that followed the sunset. It will work as a wallpaper for your widescreen monitor. Enjoy it, and have a fantastic week!

Nature’s Black & White

Nature's Black & White

This old, half-broken redbud tree gets photographed a lot. It’s beautiful when it blooms in the spring, and its odd shape casts interesting shadows. Here, I was enjoying the sun highlighting the icy branches. This photo was taken the day after the great winter storm (I didn’t say blizzard) of February 2011 ended.
