Photo Post 9.25.11 (Wyoming at Night)

I was in Wyoming a couple of weeks ago, with a gorgeous full moon.  The view was breathtaking, and there was no way I could capture it in a photo, but I tried.  Also my attempt at a star trail shot (not a very good one!)

Here’s a few of my night shots.

Daily Photo 2.17.11 (Moon with Clouds)

I always find challenging photos the most fun.  It’s almost like, I want to see if I can get it.  I love photographing the moon, and there were plenty of clouds so I had to wait till there was a break.  I amazingly only took 20 photos to get this one (the clouds were moving fast!).  I don’t know if I could have gotten any more detail in the moon without loosing the clouds.  I am pretty happy with it.

My Daily Photo- Top 10…HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Well, I started my Daily Photo Blog at the beginning of 2010, hoping that I learn more about photography, learn my camera and I think I have done that.  I do notice an improvement from the beginning of the year, and now when I want to take a specific photograph, technically- I kinda know what I am doing! 🙂

I wish all of you a very Happy New Year!  I hope you all set goals and reach them (even surpass them!).  I set some goals each year and I try really hard to accomplish them.  Sometimes I feel that just by having some of my goals on my blog, or on Facebook, it helps me, because I feel like “I told the world, so now I have to do it!”

Here are my top 10, as chosen by friends, family, comments, views & myself:

Daily Photo 12.17.10 (Downtown Austin)

I went on a photo walk last night organized by Austin photographer Alex Suarez (thanks Alex!).  There really didn’t seem to be much as far as Christmas lights, but I managed to find some things to photograph.  By the way, what’s up with no Christmas lights over Congress Avenue, Austin??

Here are my favorite photos from last night. The first 3 are a window display and the last is the Austonian building with the clouds and moon.  It looked awesome!

Daily Photo 1.29.10

Here’s my “Wolf” Moon!  Full moon 1/29/10, the biggest brightest of the year (that’s what they say!).  It took me a few tries before I figured out the exposure for it!  I almost gave up, but looking at my previous shots on the computer told me what I needed to do.  It’s all about learning, isn’t it!! 🙂
