9.2.09 - Snow and Rain  We woke up to fresh snow again this morning, and although it was cold it was quite a pleasant day. That is, until I decided to go out and get a Daily. I had hoped to take some night snow shots around the Cathedral, but it was raining heavily! The last time I took some photos here I got a ghostly biker zooming through the shot, tonight it was a bedraggled walker. Apart from a crop to get rid of boring foreground this is straight out of camera. Despite me standing over it with an umbrella some rain managed to get on the lens, but I think it adds to the watery scene (well that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it).  For those that like to keep an eye on our Monday Challenges mine is here;  http://www.lightanddreamsphotography.com/gallery/7093288_hSxt4#470456288_tRiRP

"The River Flows"  On my way home from an appt. today I stopped at one of my favorite fishing spots on the Rockaway River in my town to grab this capture. Too bad I didn't have a set of waders in my car to get the little water fall that is located just below this scene but I have to be UNDER the bridge I was on in order to get it in the frame LOL. So you'll have to settle for this one.    I love the little water flow control house that is dilapidated here, it adds a nice rigid feel to the scene. I've watched the roof continue to collapse over the years and soon it will just fall in completely. This is one of the best trout spots around here and they stock the river just upstream weekly during trout season from the farm with tags on them so you know if you caught a wild or farm bread fish. The mountain you see in the background is part of the Picatinny Arsenal where they develop & test new weapons for the military.    Anyway, it was an overcast day here as you can see and it really brought some nice contrast into the picture that I liked. I had to make slight levels adjustments to bring the clouds out a bit more and then some selective dodging & burning to the shadow areas but not much more to this one. Oh and a slight filter applied to bring the colors up a bit since it was so dark here. 10 min. of work and it was finished. So I hope you enjoy this next addition to my fall colors month - I hope you all have a fantastic weekend and get out there to enjoy the crisp clean fall air ;)    ALTERNATE VERSION: You can see a second version in SEPIA of this image in my EXTRAS Gallery BY CLICKING HERE    Best Regards,  ~Bill~
"The Road to Color"  10/16/08  While Driving today I got stuck behind a SLOW POKE on the only single lane road leading out of town and was getting frustrated so I jumped off onto this small fire road and was shocked by the colors in this tunnel like ride. it was raining pretty good all day today so there was no sun and nasty puddles everywhere but I was able to snap this by opening my sun roof and sticking the D300 out on constant focus and shot it while doing about 10 mph. I was amazed by the composition I was able to get since I was in the center of the road and being above the car it gave me some extra height then the usual eye view, I think it worked out pretty well LOL.    In post I did a minor contrast adjustment and small crop off the bottom, that's it! I'm enjoying the colors here now but I see them disappearing very rapidly so I'm going to try and get some shots everyday now until their gone. It's supposed to get very cold here starting tonight in the 50's as a high during the day and low 40's to high 30's at night Brrrrrrrrrr. I got some other shots from today to process yet but I will be putting them in my Fall Colors 2008 gallery when there finished.    Hope you all enjoy your day,  Bill Pador
I was looking for something to photograph during the week of fog, and I found my subject, the Alex Fraser Bridge.
Gorgeous sunrise yesterday!!! The water was so still and the sky had such unique color. I shot all around the harbor for over 2 hours! Unlike today, where I overslept and missed the whole thing!  Plymouth Harbor, Ma
Cleanliness  July 10 "Ah, fresh scented and clean!"  Thanks for you comments yesterday! Had a busy evening so will try to catch up with commenting today.
6.27.2011. We found these wonderful windmills overlooking the nice little town of Consuegra, Spain. There are 11 of them sprinkled here along with a small castle that was closed :( While they are not the ones that Don Quixote did battle with, they are the same types.   The funniest thing was that one of the windmills is a little tourist shop and we stopped there first to get a cold drink. The shopkeeper told us we could climb the stairs and look out, so up we marched, and as we climbed he loudly sang  The lady's very pretty  The lady's very nice  The lady's very pretty  I'd like to kiss her twice!     Oh those Spaniards!!!     Thanks everyone for all your comments, it's so fun to be home and be following all the great pictures in the dailies.

June 11, 2011    This is the same abandoned station where the marching line of gas pumps were found.  You can see that shot posted on June 5th here if you missed it.  I know many of you have seen it because of the wonderful comments which are very appreciated.    http://lgood.smugmug.com/Other/Daily-Photos-2010/12484643_ezMcC#1367630283_kkxm8S9    This is another set of gas pumps that are older in style, and were in front of the abandoned station.  As I mentioned before, there were 100s of pumps around this place.  It was so cool.    And here's an old sign that was in front of this old place- http://lgood.smugmug.com/Other/Signs/7752337_483tx//1061733754_#1376000970_H7MsspG    This was such a cool place and it brought back lots of memories for me from days gone by.  I hope you all enjoy it.    Linda
Two Minute Blue Hour, Lake Sam Rayburn TX    A view from the new beach we've found at Lake Sam Rayburn.  I can't stress enough how cool this beach is.  My photos don't really give any sense of what it looks like, just the view.  I'll have to take a video the next time we're there.  Maybe I'm just really excited because the previous 20 or so lake views we've scouted on two different lakes have mostly been a bust.  We're really looking forward to spending the day there sometime in the next few weeks and exploring it further.      This is a single two minute exposure taken some 20 minutes after the sun went down.  This is one of the last shots of the night and it was getting dark fast.  I'm always surprised how much light I can continue to capture long after the sun goes down.  I used a 3-stop hard-step graduated neutral density filter to block three stops of light above the horizon.  I've always admired the abstract feeling of really long exposures on the water, and it has been a goal of mine to make some really long exposures of my own.  I've still got a lot to learn.  I'm also trying to break my habit of using 17mm and f/22, but habits are hard to break.    QUESTION:  I'm interested to hear your thoughts about the color temperature of this photo.  What color temperature do you think I used for this photo?  What's your best guess?  What is the appropriate color temperature for this situation 20 minutes after sundown?    Critiques always welcome!    Daily photo: August 29, 2012, taken August 26, 2012
Frozen Tobolsk Kremlin. (1.2.2012)  Off to Rome tomorrow afternoon so may be MIA the rest of the week. Hope everyone's enjoyed their holidays & renewed for a fresh start to 2012.
