I finally logged back into my flickr account and uploaded some recent photos from an evening trip to Mercer Island. It was around sunset, the light was beautiful, and I had about two hours to myself to just shoot what I could.
This hand was part of many holding a chain along some docks. The sunset was truly beautiful, but it was difficult to find a decent vantage point., given the people at the beach and the many trees. For more photos, check out my flickr stream.
We went down to one of the many local lakes and I snapped a couple of shots of the lake during sunshot. It’s a small, beautiful lake with a tiny public beach, a dock inhabited by fishermen and a small swimming area. No motorized boats are allowed.
I’m sure there are hundreds of places within a few minutes’ drive of here that have wonderful photo opportunities. It’s just a matter of taking the time to find them. I recently picked up the 18-200 VR lens for my D80 and absolutely love it. Also got the 50mm f/1.8Dthat is also wonderful.
I’ll probably be posting more pictures on this blog, just to share something.
