Tumbling Stones

Banff_3688

I was attracted to what looked like scattered pieces of rock. There is a break between the peaks. Therefore I set up a composition using the break in the peaks to emphasize the flow of rock pieces on the snow. The location is the Bow Lake area in Banff National Park, Alberta.

Iglesia, San Francisco

Iglesia San Francisco

Iglesia San Francisco, Granada, Nicaragua. With late afternoon lighting, the colors on this old church were warming up nicely. All colors here are earth tone. I used the stairway to lead your eye to the door. The stairway railings, pillars and doorway are wonderfully detailed in the warm lighting.

Lady Beautiful

She has a heart for love

With her ears she listens

Her lips will give you truth

Her name is lady beautiful

Her name is lady beautiful

Her name is lady beautiful…

With hands so gentle

She will soothe you

Her voice when she speaks

Is a voice with kindness

lady beautiful

lady beautiful

She is the love of my life

She is my wife

That great tree of life

That stands forever

She is like a rock

No matter the hour

On the old clock

She is lady beautiful

She is lady beautiful

She is lady beautiful

She is the love of my life

She is my wife

That great tree of life

That stands forever

Her name is lady beautiful

Her name is lady beautiful…

Mountain Fire

_MG_0778_4338

The winds were blowing out the North yesterday at a brisk pace. The town of Jinotega, Nicaragua is nestled down in a valley surrounded by the mountains. This event occurred on the Eastern side of Jinotega on the mountain slopes.

It is a common practice that occurs every year in March to set fires to burn the vegetation. It is a very dry time of year as you can see by the color of the grass. No homes were burnt.

AS a photo opportunity I saw some potential. Grabbing my camera I headed to a small hill. Jinotega is infested with wires crisscrossing the streets. So being on the hill eliminated that problem.  There is a gully running the side of the mountain here that gave some depth and a focal point. Three trees surrounded by smoke and fire on the edge of the gully add to the element of this composition. Then I added a few casa at the bottom to present a sense of danger. Will the wind shift to the East and send the fire roaring through the homes

The beauty Of A Composition

Banff_3627presets

An aimlessly drifting cloud. Early morning lighting. The patches of light highlight this composition . You can pick up on the patches of lighting going up the mountainside in two locations here. There is small detail here involving the morning light. Morning light is cool. Evening light is warm. A patch of shadow dominates the central of the composition. But there is detail available in that dark area along with the light touching certain elevated parts.

Sinclair Pass (el. 1,486 m or 4,875 ft) is a high mountain pass in Kootenay National Park between the Columbia and Kootenay Rivers to the northeast of present-day Radium Hot Springs in the province of British Columbia

 

So enjoy the beauty of this composition.
