Winter Beach

A Christmas Eve day walk on the winter Parson’s  beach a few miles from home. There is a definite December solstice look to the sky and that deep winter slant to the light of late morning.

Merry Christmas to you all.

Sony DSC H50 at 31mm equivalent. F5.6 @ 1/500th @ ISO 100. Programmed auto.

Added Clarity and just a touch of Vibrance in Lightroom. Recovery for the clouds and sky. Sharpen Landscapes preset.

From Around Home Kennebunk ME.

And here we are: My wife (right most) and two of my 5 daughters. You can see the one on the left (Sarah) takes after her dad, photographically at least. She has a blog…mostly about books…but she posts some images and some travel adventures, at What We Have Here is a Failure to Communicate.

Morning Walk: Carol at the Farmhouse B&B on our last morning.

Our last morning above Kendal at the farmhouse B&B. We moved that day down to Rutland Water in Leicestershire, and the Barnsdale Hall Resort, for a few days at the British Birding Fair (where I was on-duty at the Zeiss booth).

I like the colors and textures and angles of this shot.

Minolta A1 at about 32mm equivalent. F3.5 @ 1/60 @ ISO 100. Programed auto.

Punch and Sharpen landscape presets in Lightroom.

And that is, for now, the last of the shots from our 2005 trip to the Lakes and Dales.

Father's Day Blessings, 4 of my 5 girls and my wife

Gloom day portrait in Bar Harbor along the seawall, but a reminder that there is more to life than photography, apt for this Father’s Day.

Sony DSC H50 at full wide. F5.0 @ 1/250th @ ISO 100. Programed auto.

Slight cropping in Lightroom. Minimal other processing.

And 3 of the 5 in Asctiou Azalea gardens the next day.
