After a busy morning, I took my dog and my camera out in the mid afternoon. The sun was bright and peeked through the trees, illuminating their bright colors with heavenly radiance.
I took a total of 180 photos. These are the 12 best of the day. Click to see them full-sized and feel free to use them as your desktop wallpaper.
|I love the shadows and placement of the sun.|
|Facing southwest, everything came together.|
|Lion's Island to the left. Almost no editing was necessary with this photo.|
|One of my favorite things to do is find vertical lines within the composition. The trees and church steeple helped me accomplish that here.|
|I love layers: sky, colorful trees, reflective water, the semicircle of leaf-mottled grass.|
|More layers and a clear horizontal composition, with the exception of the fountain.|
|One of my favorites. I love the way the lampposts and flag pole cut through the photo.|
|One of the day's best.|
|This guy let me follow him around for quite a while. I think he enjoyed being the center of attention.|
|Standing on one of the bridges, I was able to capture the reflecting colors and a dramatic cloud in the sky.|
|We love living so close to the town's lake. Nature put on a terrific show today. Several people were there with their cameras.|
|After an hour, the sun started to fade. This was one of the final shots. Reminding me of an Impressionist painting, I opted for a blurry effect.|
