Earlier this week, thanks to Kat's blog, I found another wonderful photography blog, called Mortal Muses. I lingered there for quite awhile, working my way backwards through post upon post, just lost in beauty. If you love photography and/or just want to improve yours, head over to both blogs.
Phil and I enjoyed our first sailboat ride...a moonlit one!...just a few weekends back at St. Michael's in MD. We sailed using "partial sails" due to an unsettled weather system, and I can only imagine what full sails must be like. I felt absolutely drawfed, but at the same time completely enthralled.
While wandering through part of western NY, I glanced down to see this crushed, but still beautiful, fern. Mom (mother nature) really does know what's best in the sense that she provides space, and along with it peace and beauty. We just need to pay attention and "see."
In a bit closer, and if I remember correctly, pretty much nearly flat on the road's shoulder while Phil stood guard. I'm sure I created no end of amusement and bafflement, accompanied by headshaking as the motorists whizzed by!
I tend to focus in tightly, but was pleased as I wandered back through recent photos, that I used this technique as well. I've learned so much from both blogs, and I'm really beginning to figure out what makes certain photos work!
