While in Florida recently, I stepped outside one evening and was surprised to see a brilliant post-storm vista unfold. Fortunately, I had my cell phone with me and was able to catch a few photos as the sun yielded the horizon to nightfall.
This week’s challenge invites the photographer to use perspective to make the subject of the photo look like something other than what it is. The scene that I photographed was the view as I accompanied my mother to her mailbox. I used perspective to hide the street and cars and to compose the image, capturing only the elements I wanted to remember. For more on this week’s Photo Challenge …
I was out on the Konza Prairie the other afternoon and it was just about the prettiest that I have seen it. The grasses are starting to put on their autumn colors – subtle shades of golds, oranges, reds and purple – before they turn brown for the winter. It is delightful to walk on the trails and hear little besides the wind blowing through the grasses, the songbirds and crickets, and the crunch of one’s own footsteps. In some places, the grasses are tall enough that I could extend my arms almost straight out from my sides and touch them with my fingertips as I passed by.
A certain organization has recently published a poll in which Kansas was voted the least scenic state in the Union, prompting the Kansas Tourism Division to request assistance in dispelling this claim. Here is a photo that I took one morning shortly after sunrise. I hope that you enjoy the beautiful Kansas scenery! Have a lovely day!
While visiting my mother in the Adirondacks recently, I had a chance to enjoy some beautiful sunsets. I thought I’d share a few of my favorite photographs. As my mother likes to say, “Look at the view!” (Please let me know if you have problems viewing the photos.) Enjoy!
