Time Of Day And Weather Differences

I write a monthly “Photography In The National Parks” column for the National Parks Traveler. I try to gear the column for any type of photography, from smartphone to point-and-shoot to SLR. I will own up that quite a few of my tips involve things for SLRs, like Neutral Density and Polarizing filters, but for the most part, the tips and techniques I include are for any sort of photographer. One of the tips I emphasize in many of my articles for this column is to visit (re-visit) a favorite spot during different seasons, weather conditions, and times of the day. The images above, taken during an August stay at Camp Denali in Denali National Park & Preserve, were captured during the morning hours, but on different days and under different weather conditions. As you can see, they all look a little different, don’t they?

Rainy Days And Thursdays

Ok, not quite the words to the song, but you get my drift. Maybe it should be more like “April showers bring May flowers,” although these flowers are already in bloom and it’s not yet May.

Raindrops on spring flowers are very photogenic, if you don’t mind getting wet to get the shot.

It’s what you do when you are a photographer taking a break from shoveling the driveway. And yes, it’s single malt.

Black Skimmer In The Rain

Black Skimmer In The Rain

 

It’s been dull, gloomy, foggy, chilly and rainy for over a week now.  The sky has been a matte pewter-gray without even the benefit of interesting clouds.  This is more Pacific Northwest weather as opposed to southeast Texas weather.  A little depressing, actually.  Enough to make me want to return to work on Monday…and it’s only Saturday!    Sigh.  I and my cameras are definitely going to travel somewhere next December Christmastime; staying static in Texas is just not me.

C’mon, 2015!  Let’s get to the interesting stuff I have planned for this year!
