I started working on this photo a couple days ago and got sidetracked, and quite handily, had some time to finish it today for my monochrome post. This was shot as a long exposure with an infrared filter, from the deck of Lion Sands Tinga Lodge (oh, how I wish I was there right now!)
I’m really hoping I can find some opportunities between work and school work to get out and play around with the infrared filter this summer, as it is definitely a technique I enjoy th look of, and would like to get some more skills in.
For the last few blog posts, I have been revisiting my journey through Uganda and editing some photos that I passed by the first go around. It’s been wonderful to review these images and relive the memories that I carry of that wonderful journey. Today and tomorrow will be the last of Uganda revisited, and after that, I am going to be moving on to revisiting my time in Kenya.
These images were taken at Queen Elizabeth National Park while staying at Ishasha Wilderness Lodge, along the Kazinga Channel while staying at Mweya Lodge, and in the Kibale Forest, where I stayed at Primate Lodge.
I’ve had some fun over the last few weeks playing around with some images in Topaz Studio and creating a bit of photo art. I had been hoping to get out with my camera and capture some of the new birds I have been seeing around, but the weather has definitely not been conducive to that this week. It seems to be a theme lately that I want to do more with my photography than time allows, but these sort of cycles ebb and flow, and there is no sense in getting all worked up about it. I’m just happy that I have something to share this week.
This image was created when I was playing around with my infrared filter during the early afternoon, in the down time between game drives. This was shot from my deck while staying at Lion Sands River Lodge. Infrared is definitely an area I want to explore more; this was definitely a case of playing around and seeing what happens, but I like the results.
My main computer has gone into sick bay after several months of acting funny, so I am without my editing software for the next few days at least. I do have a bunch of edited photos to choose from to create posts, but not quote as many as I would like on any one topic. C’est la vie. There’s nothing to be done about it, so I’ll just carry on and make the best of it.
Today I chose a couple of images I took while on a Panorama route tour in South Africa last May. It was a beautiful day trip that I would highly recommend to anyone; it is well worth the tie, especially if you have a nice day to explore.
Both of these were shot in an area called The Potholes.
Fingers crossed I am up and running again like normal next weekend 🙂
I always take a camera with me when I go out for walks with my dog (or on the rare occasion when I go for a walk on my own). I haven’t taken too many images in recent months, and as such hadn’t downloaded the card in quite some time. While out on Thursday, I saw a beautiful barred owl near my house, and while reviewing those pictures, I found a few others I had forgotten that I had taken.
This is a bit of a random assortment of images taken since July, while out and about on walks.
