Poison Ivy - Day 146

ISO 2500, f/8.0, 1/90th sec

 This plant is easy to identify with its shiny three leaves and is avoided by most people in the outdoors. However, today it made a good subject on a walk I took with my camera in hand. Several vines were climbing this tree, and I selected this classic group of leaves against the rough bark as my subject. This photo is the 15th flora I have captured to date.

Reeds In Abstract - Day 145

ISO 100, f/8.0, 1/125th sec

 The image above was taken at a local reservoir on a morning walk. As you might know from previous photos, I enjoy creating images the have an element of chaos and confusion to it. However, if you look more closely there are consistent patterns throughout it as well. This is my 14th flora image to date for the blog.

Knotweed With Dew - Day 144

ISO 500, f/8.0, 1/90th sec

 I do prefer shooting in the morning vice the later part of the day. I am an early riser and part of that comes from my 20 years in the service. Mornings provides you on days with wonderful sunrises but also offers chances to capture images like the closeup photo of the dew on a Knotweed leaf. This image makes my 13th of different flora I have captured.

Pano Reflections - Day 143

ISO 100, f/8.0, 1/125th sec

 I enjoy trying different techniques both in the field and the digital darkroom and that applies to this photograph. In the field I shot three different images of the scene and merge them together in the darkroom. In the darkroom I also applied a high key antique style finish to the photograph to get these results. This is my 6th reflection image I have created for the blog.

Looking Up - Day 142

ISO 100, f/8.0, 1/60th sec

 When I am out walking, I am always looking for a different point of view of a scene that I have visited many times before. The reservoir in Sprague is one of those places I have walked and photographed in the past. As I was hiking through a stand of White Pine trees I happen to look up and saw this composition. I actually laid down on my back to get this shot. This is my 12th flora image I have posted to date.
