Pulsating Pelican

DP Photo Challenge: Out-of-Focus

I’ve been trying to get better at taking night pictures.  Basically right now, I’m bad.  But that said, I have gotten some interesting out-of-focus results.  I share two with you below.

This one is a pelican in flight.  It was late dusk and he was flying as part of a pair.  I have cropped and used a filter on the photo and actually like the result, it was not what I intended, but that’s okay, too.

Here’s a shimper at night on the Savannah River.  It is the best of the bad.  I actually did use a tripod, but I need some training, to get the settings on my camera right.

Big

Day 7 of Developing Your Eye 1 – Big

The powers that be are dredging the Savannah River so that even more gigantic boats can sail into the port and deliver more fine goods from around the world.

Here is a photo of a work ship moving up the river.  Just so you get a perspective of the size, take a look at the seagulls and kayak in the foreground and if you look on the right hand side of the boat you can just make out a guy sitting on the deck.  The only problem that I have with photographs like this is they really can’t give you the true feeling of how big and awe inspiring these ships are.

Photo Challenge -Twinkle -Droplets and Dredge

DSC_0170

Two very different pictures for today’s theme, “Twinkle”.

The first is a shot of a cedar tree with dew glistening on its branches.  I was walking and taking bird pictures last week and this branch caught my eye….too bad the birdie wasn’t in the frame as well.

DSC_0327The second shot is of a dredge traveling up the river at night.  It was rather close to the shore and startled me when it came into my line of sight, since it was so unexpected.  I must admit, the twinkle was brighter in person than in the photo.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Angular

Four very different options on angular.

The first is a picture of an angular walkway with a blue heron perched on the rail.

The second is piece of bamboo laying at an angle next to a butterfly.

The third is a fishing boat with all kinds of angles for the masts and lines.

The final is a barge being pulled by a tug on the Savannah River.  The dredge creates a nice 45 degree angle.

Please let me which one you think is the most representative of the word “angular” and this challenge.
