I was told that the ground in Amsterdam is so soft that houses had to be built on stilts that were hammered into the ground. I photographed these houses early in the morning when I got a great reflection.
I took my bubble water mixture with me this morning when I was heading out of town (Merced, CA) to photograph at Lake Yosemite. While the sun was peeking through I created some bubbles on a able and I photographed the reflection of the trees and the rising sun using a 180mm macro lens.
Upper Emerald pool is located in Zion National Park. Most people that I have seen have walked the easy trail to the lower pool. If you visit Zion, please take the effort to visit the Upper Pool. You will be rewarded with great vistas around you and a super clear pool with a nice reflection of the rocks.
I photographed in the rain yesterday. I covered the camera with a plastic bag and made sure that lens and camera stayed dry. The I photographed the water droplets on a large leaf using a 100mm macro lens.
I love to photograph after a freh rain. Usually the air is crisp and the light is great for photographing in the streets. I used a 200mm prime lens and photographed at f3.5 to get a very shallow depth of field.
Currently I am experimenting with a 2000 ND filter. Photographing the fall colors in the creek I used the following camera setting: f8, ISO 50 and one minute exposure time. The long exposure time smoothed the water in the creek and I got the beautiful color reflection.
