Wide Angle Perspective 4

This is my day 31 contribution to Becky’s July Squares on the theme of Perspective and the last of my wide angle perspective series.

It’s been interesting picking squares and putting together series for the month. A big thank you to Becky for running the challenge with such a wide ranging theme.

I started the month with a monochrome photo of these wood piles so I thought I would end the month with a different photo using a different camera and lens combo plus it’s in colour this time.

It’s still not obvious that the grass behind the wood piles is only a few inches below the top of them and that they’re holding back almost two feet of dirt and rocks.

Travel Tuesday

Colpoy’s Bay at night

Travel Tuesday is only traveling back to very early last Saturday morning when I traveled to the dock in the village of Colpoy’s Bay in another attempt to photograph the comet Neowise.

These star trails over Colpoy’s Bay are a 25 minute exposure in total. I was using the live composite setting on an Olympus camera so the initial exposure was 1 second with a further 1,499 1 second exposures added to the initial exposure.

Earth has started passing through the Perseids meteor shower which explains all the shooting stars the camera recorded. The light along the bottom left of the frame is a vehicle driving down the shoreline road. The breaks in the light are when the vehicle is behind trees.

Too Cloudy to see Comet Neowise

But I stayed for the sunrise.

Wide Angle Perspective 1

This is my day 20 contribution to Becky’s July Squares on the theme of Perspective and the first of a wide angle perspective series. Hard to believe that we’re on day 20 already.

A group of Coneflowers photographed with a wide angle lens making the flowers closer to the lens appear much larger than the flowers further away when in reality they’re all a similar size.

First Test of a New Lens

The Kamlan 28mm  f/1.4 wide open.

I rather like the background rendering.
