K├Âlner Dom - Day 37

2 years ago this week we were in Germany for Christmas markets. Here is Cologne Cathedral the fourth-tallest church building in the world at 516 ft.

This is how I start my Monday, Wednesday and Friday at o-dark-thirty each week. I've been at it for two years years now and it has changed my life. Thanks to Daniel, Mark and everyone at Fitness Together Norfolk, my cousin Lin who recommended FT Norfolk and to my dear friend Reza who got me out of the computer chair and off the couch. Canon G15, 1/20 sec @ f/2.2, ISO 800.

- As a photographer you develop a technique to "see in frames", images freeze in your mind and your try to capture them with the camera. You apply your skills and execute trying to capture the image in your mind. Occasionally after you upload it to the computer and really look it and realize there's so much more than what you envisioned. Tonight was one of those times for me. I have often photographed these blooms from my camellia bush. The water droplets from a light rain falling tonight helped this perfect shaped blossom jump off the screen when I looked at it. There is so much texture and detail in these flowers, truly a miracle of beauty. Canon 7D, 1/125 sec @ f/8.0, ISO 400, 100mm macro, 1 LED Litepanel.

Drops on the Edge

Light Rain

Hot Now

- There's nothing like a hot Krispy Kreme doughnut. The melt in you mouth sugar bomb is a Southern tradition. It takes super human powers to pass up when the "Hot Now" sign is lit up. Canon G10, 1/15 sec @ f/8.0, ISO 80, mounter on a tripod and taken in a light rail. The picture is just OK but the doughnuts were outstanding.

Caterpillar Rain

From 2010 Blog
- We had a nice short little rain shower this evening but it was probably not enough to make much difference in our dry summer. But this little caterpillar was oblivious to rain while he was munching away on my rosemary. Canon 7D, 1/125 sec @ f/5.6, ISO 1600, 100mm macro.

Ah - Rain!

From 2010 Blog
- After 10 days of mid to upper 90 degree temperatures a front moved through tonight bringing cooler air and a light rain shower. The garden sure needed the relief as the August style weather in June has really stressed the plants. This Hyperion Elite daylily bud is ready to burst open tomorrow after tonight's cool shower. 1/800 sec @ f/4.0, ISO 1600, 100mm macro, Micro LED Litepanel.

Down Came the Rain

From 2010 Blog
- but it didn't wash this little spider out. We had some nasty thunderstorms this evening but this little guy was back building his web among the hosta blooms. Canon 7D, 1/250 sec @ f/5.0, ISO 800, 100mm macro, Litepanel LED.

271 - Storm Spider

From 365 Project
I've only changed the picture once before after posting it to the blog but I'm going to do it again tonight. A series of thunderstorms just swept through dumping about an inch of rain in a little over an hour. This big spider has been building a web each night just out side my side door. After the storm I stuck my head outside to see if all of the wind and water had messed up the web, but to my surprise she was wet but still hanging in there. Canon G10, 1/250 sec @ f/4.5, ISO 400, in manual mode with manual macro focus (auto focus doesn't work in the dark). The lighting was provided by a Canon 430EX Speedlite also in manual mode at 1/32 power with a wireless controller.

87 - Air Force Memorial

From 365 Project
The Air Force Memorial in glows against low hanging clouds and mist. Located on a promontory in Arlington, Virginia, overlooking the Pentagon and adjacent to Arlington Cemetery, the memorial's three 270 feet tall stainless arcs evoke the spirit of flight. Taken with a Canon 40D, 5.0s exposure at f/8.0, ISO 200, 28mm equivalent focal length, mounted on a tripod.
