Foothills Predawn

Foothills Predawn

 

The sun was about to rise west of Calgary on this day. The first beams start to color the upper clouds, but the sun is not so high in the sky to lighten the deep blue of the sky. There was just enough light to reveal the field and trees in the foreground.

Smoky Sunset

The sun was trying to shine through multiple layers of cloud and smoke. Everything came together in a simple click. No matter what kind of light there is, you can still work with it to find a shot.

Another flower that I don’t remember the name. It is an exercise in depth of field. A couple of hours in my Mother’s flower garden gives me a wide selection of images to work on.

All of the images this week were taken handheld with my Nikon D300s, Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8.

Morning Glory

This week’s posts are brought to you courtesy of my Mother’s garden. The morning glory can be hard to photograph. In this image, the stamen and the far side of the trumpet are sharp but the near edge is out of focus. The colour is also hard to manage. On my main screen, the flower looks blue with purplish veins and on another monitor it looks purple. On location, it might have been a bit in between.

White Flower

Summertime in my Mother’s garden is like a festival of flowers. There are so many varieties, it is hard to keep track of the names. She knows most of them and could probably tell you the name of this one. I’m sure she told me but I didn’t write it down and so the name is lost for me. So, for now, it’s White Flower.

In the best light…
