    I don't believe I posted these images here before, these were taken before my join date last spring, but these shots continue to be two of my favorite shots I have ever taken.

    They were taken only 50 yds away from each other, facing different directions, one in winter (obviously) and one in very early spring-late winter (the sunset/wetland shot)

    Funny how a location can provide two completely different images. The serenity shot I waited for over an hour to get the "perfect" light, while the cold picnic was a hop out of the car in the 3 degree weather, take a a quick series of shots and then back in the car! Both were taken handheld, even though I prefer tripods for my serious landscape attempts, but just goes to show it is more important to have a camera than a tripod!

    First one is called "cold picnic", second is called "Serenity"

  3. Wade,

    Great shots. I like the colors in the 2nd one and B&W are always my favorites.

    God Bless,

    I really love the sunset color as well. Just beautiful.

    I am just not much into B/W...
     
  6. I can certainly see why you favor them. Very strong images, both of them.

    thanks, Gale and Dave,

    by the way, how do you all get so many many posts in just a year, I feel like I am here all the time, post all the time, and wish I could spend more time here, yet only have a few hundred since midyear.
