water painting (2 images)

Yesterday morning I enjoyed a beautifully mild, breezy wander at the beach. I decided to try experimenting with my 6-stop ND filter and different shutter speeds to see what effect it would have on the appearance of the water. By changing my lens’s aperture, I ended up with a 1.3 second exposure for the top photo, and a .6 second exposure for the bottom.  Do you have a preference?

In the fall of 2015, I took a picture of this tree in all its golden glory. Here it is in the spring, blooming its heart out at the side of the road.

In summer and winter, this little tree almost disappears into the background foliage, but for two seasons of the year, it really shines.
