Weekly Photo Challenge: Shine

This week’s photo challenge is Shine. I just recently bought a new camera (Nikon D5500), so I had to mess around with the HDR settings. This is my first HDR photo. However, I also took some that were NOT HDR, so I just wanted to mess around a little bit.

I was driving back to my house this evening after running some errands, and saw the clouds in the sky and figured that the sunset tonight was going to be beautiful. I promptly dropped everything and raced up to the lake for some photo ops. Needless to say, I was super happy with the outcomes. Hope you all enjoy!!!

Posting anew

I am in the process of setting up an “official” website for my photos, so I am really trying to do better with posting more photos on here. Once the website is up and running, I will post that information as well, in case anyone is interested. It will include an online store where you can purchase my photos if you so desire.

That being said, my wife and I recently got back from a trip to the Philippines just before Christmas. While we were there, we spent a lot of time with my brother and his family, so they took us all over to take in the sights. This was a museum and plantation area called Villa Escudero. I hope you enjoy!

Brooks Lake

On our way to Yellowstone, we decided to jump off the main road and take a jaunt through the Wyoming Countryside. I am so glad we did. We found Brooks Lake, and it was amazing. There was still snow on the ground (since it was June and we were in the mountains), the air was crisp and cool, and the water was pretty calm. With the mountains behind the lake, the scenery was absolutely amazing. I had to share this photo, and I hope you all enjoy!

Beautiful Reflection

As many of you know, I really love reflections. They are just another way to see the same thing, but from a different angle. This Water Lily was interesting in that it was there, floating amongst all the green leaves and lily pads, just soaking up the sun. The whiteness of the flower really struck me, along with the reflection of it in the water. I hope you all enjoy!
