Bridal Veil Post Office


I'm back from another visit to the Northwest area of the USA. Hopefully this isn't the best photo I got, but I could not pass up this awesome little U.S. Post Office. Yes, it is an active, working Post Office. Cool, Huh???

Sunset Sunday - 105


Click on photo to view enlarged.
I really had to dig into the archives for this one because I'm out of town and only have my laptop which doesn't have very many photos on it and I haven't had the opportunity to get any good sunsets on this trip. But I couldn't let a Sunday go by, especially after last week's remarks, without posting an image.

We'd love to have you join in with your own sunset or sunrise photo for Sunset Sunday.  It doesn't matter when you took the photo so join us every week.  If you have one to share post a link  to it in your comment, (click here to learn how) or just tell us it's there and we'll click on your name to find it.

OBTW, if you do post something for Sunset Sunday it would put a big smile on my face if you added a link to this blog in your post. Thanks!<

Sunset Sunday - 104


Click on photo to view enlarged.
According to what I learned in elementary school there are 52 weeks in a year.  That means that if this is Sunset Sunday - 104 then this should be two years of Sunset Sundays.  I went back and checked and Sunset Sunday # 1 was actually February 21st 2010.  So apparently I've missed a few weeks over the two years.  This is one of my favorites and I took it on March 11th this year.  For those who are curious it is HDR.

I will be out on a family and photo excursion for the next couple weeks so I may not get much opportunity to post or visit.  I hope you will forgive me.  I will try very hard to have a Sunset Sunday shot for each Sunday though.

Rockland Harbor

Rockland Harbor, a photo by Just Used Pixels on Flickr.
The lighthouse at Rockland Harbor is at the end of about a half mile breakwater make of granite. As you can see here I'm still working with the textures and enjoying it.

Sunset Sunday - 103



Click on photo to view enlarged.
Okay, my excuse for being so late today is that it is the beginning of Daylight Savings time and I lost an hour last night.  Not a very good one, but it's all I got so I'm sticking with it.

This shot was taken about three nights ago on the causeway that takes you to Antelope Island in the Great Salt Lake in Utah, USA.  About 75% of my sunset photos are taken within two or three miles of this spot.

HUGE TIP:  If you love sunset and sunrise shots like I do and want to improve yours, Laura Delegal has an AWESOME blog and she also shares a lot of great photography tips.  Being incredibly clever she puts them under a tab at the top of her regular blog and calls it . . . wait for it . . . Photography Tips.  You can find her blog here and a great tutorial on photographing sunrises and sunsets here.  She did ask me for a few ideas which she added to the bottom, but it was a great tutorial before my thoughts were added.

Three

I don't know for sure why I'm infatuated with small empty boats, but I am.  Probably because since I live in a desert I see very few of them.  Here is another attempt at making a photo a little more like art through the magic of textures.

Below is the original SOOC shot.

Lonesome Boat




Click on photo to view enlarged.


Another work of texturing an image. 

I really appreciated the comments on yesterday's texturized image, even those who didn't see it as one of their favorites.  Most of the time if people don't particularly like an image they just don't comment, but once in a while it's nice to get real feedback from people who don't like it as well as those who do.  To tell you the truth it was not one of my favorites either, but I was struck by that memorial, and like many of you very curious.  I wanted to give it kind of a somber feeling and I liked the blurry figures in the background which were almost imperceptible as people walking the beach.

Cape Cod Beach

As I've warned before, this year I'm really trying to do more art with my photography by adding some texture and changing up the saturation and so on.  Here is my latest attempt on that.
