LIBERTY HILL SCOUT

A couple of things seen while strolling through Liberty Hill...but not for long...because it was
40 degrees and dropping fast and leaves were blowing down the street.

DO WE REALLY NEED VR GLASSES?

A slightly different shot from my San Gabriel river trek. A partial sun came out for just the right amount of punch.

DOWN BY THE RIVER

Around this time every year I take a trek down to the San Gabriel river in the Georgetown area. The light is always lovely in November. 


Most are taken with the camera on a tripod, UV filter removed but adding a polarizer to control reflections. Also used a timer to avoid touching the camera.






I love these rock formations, evidence of millions of years of water erosion.

Set the camera to aperture priority at f8 because this lens (18-135mm) seems to be darn sharp around 7.1 to 8. Camera used - Nikon D7000.

MOSAIC ART

I was commissioned by Gabrielle Mosaic to capture one of her sculptures in a practical setting. This particular piece was purchased by one of her clients and placed in their backyard.
When the sun is out, the glass bits pick up the rays and project them back on the ground for a wonderful effect.   

 However, that isn't so great for photography. The shiny points of brilliant light throw the digital sensor into zero and one confusion blocking out some of the finer details.

   


A soft overcast day is what the sensor loves...not too much contrast...not too little...
just right...the Goldilocks light.
