Another Look at January 6, 2016

Transition 1

January 6, 2016

I thought I would take another look at some of my first photos and see what editing changes I would make today.  I knew nothing about editing then so the top photo is straight out of the camera.

January 6, 2016 Edited

I like the difference the muted colors bring.  

Do you have a capture you would like to revisit?  I’d love to see what changes you would make.  Tag it “Another Look” so everyone can share.

Photo Challenge – 2017 Favorite

To celebrate the end of the year, this week we are asked to share the most meaningful photo(s) we’ve taken in 2017.

Heron in Pastel

This photo was taken at sunset last month at Huntington Beach State Park.  It was a cool evening and while the colors in the sky were gorgeous, the colors reflected in the water outshone those in the sky.  

As the sun continued to set, the water turned a beautiful gold.  And all too soon, it was time to go home.

Photo Challenge – Glow

This week we are asked to share something that glows.

This challenge is easy.  Two weeks ago, I finally gave into the urge and got myself that pony in my dreams.  I used to own one years ago but gave it up for practicality.

Mustang

Fast forward to this summer and I’ve seen countless convertibles in my travels.  And I knew I wanted the wind in my hair again.

Practicality is extremely overrated.

Photo Challenge – Wish

This week we are asked to share a wish.

Boat Wake

I wish to see beautiful skies each day.  I wish for calm waters, the smell of salt water, cool breezes and the feel of the sun on my face.

The Bridge at Dusk

DSC_0509-1

I walked part of the Arthur Ravenell Jr Bridge the other day with two of my daughters but this time at dusk.  I walked it once before with one of my daughters and you can see that post here

It was extremely windy so we didn’t stay as long as I would have liked but I still got lots of fantastic shots.  Watching the sun set and seeing the lights on the bridge start to come on was beautiful and getting to spend time with my daughters – well, it was an awesome day!

I’ve posted pictures of the bridge twice before in Photo Challenges.  They are here and here.
