I think the minimal color palette shows off the detail of the duck’s feathers and of the grasses. She was also very calm. I walked to the edge of Kai Tai Lagoon and didn’t see her next to me until I was standing there. She held very still in the sun.
Attach your photograph or photographs with detail that you enjoy or fascinates you. I will list them next week. And thanks for the get will wishes re influenza!
In this photograph I zoomed in to capture the cormorant. I didn’t notice or expect the row of boats at all. I like the horizon effect too, as if the boats are on the edge of something, the edge of the world.
What have you captured unexpectedly? Something in a photograph that you were not aware of? Send your link and I will list them next week.
For Mundane Monday #201, my prompt is contrast. I like the contrast of the sunlit leaves behind the dark mystery bird in this picture. This is taken on North Beach yesterday. I am not sure if this is an immature bald eagle or a golden eagle.
Link your contrast photographs or experiment with contrast and I will post links next week.
When has light and photography and conditions lined up for you to take a photograph that feels like a portal? Did you think of it ahead of time and wait for the perfect conditions or was it a combination of having your camera and a happy accident? Where does your portal lead?
Message your entry and I will list them next week.
The prompt for Mundane Monday #197 is underlighting.
How have you played with light in photographs and light from below? I took this last night at around 5 pm, on the bluff in town. The setting sun was adding gold light to the bottoms of the clouds and there were gold reflections in the water.
Link your photograph and I will list the links next week. Have a wonderful week.
I hike with my daughter around Fragrance Lake, in Larrabee State Park on Saturday. There are lots of people, many with dogs. Fragrance Lake is 0.75 miles around. It is a little overcast and the lake is quite still, surrounded by trees and hills.
This is a nurse log, or really more of a nurse stump. The young tree is getting nutrition and support from the remains of the older tree.
Link your photographs on the topic nurse log. I will list them next week.
