The first set of photos came about when Joe and I were returning home from a family event. We drove across the bridge right above the River Valley (about 149st and Summit Drive) and I looked over, and it's one of the most amazing views of downtown. I've always said to myself that I will get to that bridge and shoot it, and so when we got home, I grabbed my tripod and camera and hopped in my car. I HAD to get the photos - no better time than now! The river valley was a technicolor of fall - rich reds, sunny yellows, burnt oranges, and shades of green all over - framing downtown perfectly in the background. I hope you like the photos - fall is one of my favorite times of the year and I wish it would last abit longer before the dreaded 'w' season! lol.
And a sunset photo I took later when I got home (through the window of the spare room)...too hard to resist!
My next photo walk came about just last night. I was driving home after work and just told myself I had to go get those fountain photos I want so bad before they are turned off for the winter. So, I just did it. It was really fun to play around on my camera, especially with the Tv modes and Av modes (shutter and aperture priority) and to see the difference each made. The lighting was gorgeous, the lake practically crystal clear and I'm pretty happy with the photos I took!
Hope you enjoyed! Countdown to counting our blessings ;)
P.S. Once I get Creative Suites set up on my computer, I'll be able to do more of the photo style blogs you see on other photographer's sites. I am assuming that this is how they do it....if there is a way in iPhoto to do this, please someone tell me!
