Garden Envy

- Made my first rip to Anderson-Wright Rooms & Gardens at 622 High Street in downtown Portsmouth, Virginia. This is the gorgeous interior courtyard. If you love gardens and landscape design, this is must place to visit. Canon G11, 1/50 sec @ f/7.1, ISO 200.

Stone Bridge

- The Stone Bridge at the Norfolk Botanical Gardens. The cloudy day created a giant "softbox" in the sky allowing the light colored bridge to photograph well with the surrounding fall landscape. On a sunny day it is difficult to get the bridge without blowing out the highlights or leaving too many dark shadows. Canon 7D, 1/60 sec @ f/11.0, ISO 400, with a tripod.

Pamlico Sound

Early morning on the Pamlico Sound looking northwest from Hatteras Island North Carolina. It has been a while since I posted a nice landscape photo that wasn't a sunrise or sunset on this blog. This was from a trip to Hatteras Island back in September 2008. Looking at this photo has an amazing calming affect on me, taking me back to a great late summer get away. Canon 40D, 1/125 sec @ f/14, ISO 200.

Breaking Rules

From 2010 Blog
This photo breaks a number of photography composition rules. It is a portrait oriented landscape photo and the horizon line is almost in the direct center of the image. But I like the image and the constraints of the scene and where it was taken from required "breaking" some rules. This is the morning sun after burning through the fog on a cloudy day. Canon Powershot SD870 IS, 1/125 sec @ f/10.0, ISO 80, 48mm equivalent focal length.

149 - New Egypt

From 365 Project
Nothing like old Egypt - we went to visit the Laurita Winery in New Egypt, New Jersey today. It was beautiful country and the vineyard was very relaxing especially in contrast to yesterday's chaotic trip to the Statue of Liberty. Denise gave us a private tour of the whole facility and the wine was great. Canon 40D, 28mm, 1/1600 @ f/5.0, ISO 200.
