Kiawah Island pond, early morning. July 2008. When my SLR was returned to the manufacturer BEFORE we went to the beach, I was crushed; this was the first year I was going to be able to take "good" beach photos--I couldn't wait to use my tripod! In spite of having "only" a point and shoot, we came home with some spectacular captures. These aren't just good pictures, they're "memory holders".
Below, two pictures at sunset. I didn't know how to "do" anything about the low lighting conditions (other settings were blurrier), but I hope you can sense the beauty and mood of the day's end. E v e r y day the sky is a waiting canvas for the Master's hand.
This also fits Carmi's current sky theme for Thematic Photographic, although I think the theme changes sometime on Wednesday:).
