Tennessee Red Quail on Ice829 viewsMore than likely, this is the first time that this little quail has experienced ice in the Texas Hill Country.
Hypnotic Spin608 viewsUsed a spinning astro ball (used in nightclubs) and used selective desaturation to highlight the motion.
Metallica606 viewsThis photo was quite heavily edited to create a free flowing effect as can be seen from the original. I rotated, cropped, desaturated, changed the background, distorted the metallic material, played with the exposure, lighting and hue. Took a long time to complete.
The Light Within472 viewsHad my model inside a huge cardboard box with holes punched in it and placed the box in front of the setting sun. Also used a smoke machine to diffuse the light even more.
Flight450 viewsIt's snowing hard today. The snow is going to fall for the next four or five days and the temperature is supposed to drop very low. Maybe I will take a few more shots on Saturday but in case I don't I am adding this one from today.
Cypress on Fire446 viewsJust after the first light of dawn the sunlight breaks through the Cypress Trees along the Joshua Creek.
Through the Woods406 viewsWaterfall Creek near Crested Butte, CO - really did not need a slow shutter speed to blur this water - unbelievable flow this spring. I liked the shaft of light; however, I realized I blew one patch of the waterfall - still like the light.
Cloud Shadow403 viewsYesterday evening a few fragile clouds marked the sky over the Kansas Flint Hills. The setting sun created a shadow path below one of the closer clouds. That's what caught my eye, the mix of clouds do form an implied leading line helping to direct attention to the gold hills and lake nestled below.

one late ride to Heaven385 viewsD800E + 50mm/1.4D; f/5.6, 1/20s, ISO 800; manual exposure mode but did not meter the scene - I just decided for the DOF (deep and diffraction-free), slowest shutter that I thought I can handhold, highest ISO with least noise and then confirm thru the viewfinder that there was no overexposure indication in the exposimeter (matrix mode). Processed in CNX2. As it turned out, my handholding technique was inadequate at 1/20s - the bicycle where the focus point (AF-S) was, is not sharp.

Blue Water Lily372 viewsAt the entrance to Mercer Arboretum northeast of Houston is a fountain with several varieties of water lilies growing in the pool below. I was fascinated by the center color of this particular waterlily. It looked like liquid gold.
