Half and Half

I’ve always been told a well balanced photo makes for a good photo. So, here’s one that I think fits that bill pretty good.

Enjoy.

Simple

Sometimes, things just need to be reduced to their simplistic elements.

Two in a Million

One thing Tampa Bay is known for is some serious thunder/lightning storms.  The cool sea breezes hitting the warm afternoon air mass over the land generates large, but also quick moving storms and torrential rain.  They can be quite beautiful. The only problem is, after they are over, the humidity is awful. I came home from a day out (trying to stay as dry as I could) and walked into my house. Now, I’m not one that likes to garden. Frankly, I’d probably kill a potted silk flower. But there are a few plants that mysteriously survive despite my ignoring them. One such plant was able to cup a few droplets of water. Unfortunately, as I was setting up my camera with mini-tripod onto a stable platform to take some macro shots of that drop, I got too close and knocked int off that leaf. DOH! So, shifting to another leaf I was able to get these shots.

Enjoy!

Silhouettes in the Sunset

Driving towards the beach I figured This is Florida. Sunset’s on the beach or intercoastal waterway is always nice. I didn’t make it quite as far as the beach.  There is a small park on the way to the beach that I figured I’d stop at. There is, after all, a unique looking small bridge.  As I circled the park searching for a parking space, I saw a Great Blue Heron standing on the sea wall.  The sun began to sink lower in the sky, turning from a bright yellow to a soft orange. The haze from a brush fire blowing in from the Okefanokee National Wildlife Refuge in Georgia gave a unique glow in the sky. Being that I only have an 18-55mm lens for my camera, any wildlife photography is rather difficult and tries my patience. In order to get a good shot, I had to creep up slowly, step-by-step, moving directly towards the bird when it was looking away. I was able to get within 20 feet (more or less) and get a couple shots.

Enjoy.

Tranquil Reflections

Not much of a story behind this one. The library near my home has  a lake behind it and was able to catch the sun sinking lower in the sky reflecting off the lake.
