I’ve just got a single image today as I try to ease my way back into editing, posting etc. etc. after holidays.
I took along my tripod and my new infrared filter, and played around a bit during the down time in the middle of the day. This was taken from the back deck of my room at Lion Sands River Lodge. There were often nyalas grazing in the tall grass, but here, just a few trees and the river in the background.
A couple weeks back, I edited an owl photo with an artistic edge, turning it into something more like a painting than a photograph. (You can see here if you missed it). Now I know that’s not to everyone’s tastes, but I found it a really fun process, something that I would like to play around with once in a while.
I don’t know how often you’ll see the Artistic Impressions post title, but when you do, you know it will be something a bit out of the box.
I hope you enjoy my artistic impressions!
These and others are available for purchase on my Smugmug site.
I managed to get out shooting yesterday with a few people from the photography group I belong to. I went without expectations, only with the hope of putting the Tamron through it’s paces, as it is finally back from its second trip to service (and I must say, it seems to be focusing better than when I bought it, so fingers crossed the issues are resolved). I also took out my new camera, a Panasonic FZ1000, to start learning how to use it, and again, so far so good (and SO lightweight!!!).
I’ve not had much time for editing, so I will post a few now, and a few more photos through the week.
I didn’t think I would be entering any photos for this challenge, as I couldn’t think of any subject to photograph. Then, a couple weekends ago, I signed up to go for a hike to Ancient Forest. We had a beautiful day for a hike in the forest, and lucky for me, a member of one of the local hiking groups accompanied the group I was with, to give a talk about the area.
Certainly if you are in the Prince George area it is a beautiful place to visit, and a very unique ecosystem in the region. Some of the cedars in the forest were in excess of 5 metres in diameter and over 2,000 years old.
