A Walk In The Woods

Tonight, my family took a walk back in the woods behind our house, where a company clear-cutted a few years ago. I have always wanted to take pictures back there of the sunset, but haven't ever taken the time to do it. Until tonight.

And Oh. My. Gosh.

I think I'm in love.

These were all shot with my Nikon 50mm f/1.8 lens, and edited in various ways, all using Photoshop.

Photoshop and I are gradually becoming better friends.

This one bothers me a little. Part of the tree disappeared in the light, and so the top half of the trunk is just "floating" without being connect to the bottom half of the trunk.

Now, I know that in my last post, I talked about wanting to photograph people more. So that's just what I did. Once again, Josh was forced to be my model. He has finally decided to stop resisting me, and is instead just ignoring the camera. Works for me!
And by the way, this boy melts my heart. I caught him laughing, which makes for awesome pictures, because his real smile comes out. And that smile makes my day.
Now, this picture isn't from our trek into the woods. It's from our trip to Sequim. We parked alongside the private airstrip we were visiting, and I took pictures of airplanes. And Josh napped. I caught him sleeping.

So there! ANOTHER photography post this week! I'm on a roll!
Till next time,

  1. Those sunset pictures are gorgeous! I've been reading your posts and I can relate! I love photography, but am learning as you are and photoshop and I are starting to get along ok, but we still have our occasional spats of frustration. lol

    I have a Canon Rebel XSi and I LOVE IT! I took the Oh Shoot! Beginners Digital Photography class on the Jessica Sprague site and I'm finally learning how to use all the different settings on my's a great class! Oh yeah, by the way I'm dropping by from the Holidays in Hand class. Glad I found your blog...I'm always looking for others who are learning photography, as well. ~ Debra
