Week 14, Storm in the Foothills

I was sitting in my vehicle browsing a map of the local countryside, trying to decide where to go next, when I looked up and saw this. A very large area of very dark clouds was coming my way and as I sat and looked at them, they got closer and closer and the sound of thunder emanated from the general area of the clouds. Picture time I thought and took this image and quickly headed away from them as such darks clouds can sometimes carry hail with them - the last thing I wanted to fall on my new vehicle.

Shot with my handheld 1D X and a 24-105 lens. Processing was done in Lightroom and Nik's Color Efex 4.

Those clouds do look a bit angry.

Thanks Tom. Yup, they were pretty ugly looking. Not long after this picture was taken, lightning started coming out of the clouds and by counting the seconds and dividing by 5 (I think that's the rough formula), I figured that they were only a few miles away. Within about 5 minutes or so, I found myself driving through a significant downpour. Ahh, the joys of photographing in the foothills in the summer. :)

Week 15, Bighills Springs Park - waterfalls.

Located in the foothills, about a 45 minute drive west from my place is a small park containing a small waterfalls. I have been photographing this falls on the first of every month since last September - my project for this year. On this occasion, I decide to add an ND filter to the lens and see if I could get a decent image with the soft white water that I like. This posting shows the result of that attempt.

Shot with a tripod-mounted 1D X and a 24-105mm lens. Processing was done in Lightroom.

Nice work with the ND filter WG. I keep saying that I'm gonna get a set, but haven't yet.

Thanks Tom. NDs are great to have. I don't think I have begun to use mine to their fullest capacity yet. I am not sure how they will work with IR, so that might be my "experiment". :)

Week 17, squirrel in a tree.

Every forest must have its squirrel. This guy was sitting in the tree when I pulled up and he didn't move. I took advantage of this to grab a quick photo out the window. As soon as I moved the truck, he disappeared into the forest.

Shot with a hand-held 1DX and a 24-105 lens. Processing was in Lightroom and Nik's Color Efex 4.

Interesting processing on the flower shot WG.

Good catch on the squirrel. They do tend to dissappear quickly.
