Every photo has a story…

While stationed in Edzell, I became the base photographer working out of my normal job. That is a different story in itself that I wont go into here. The sunrises and sunsets in Scotland were often spectacular. The cloud cover in the UK almost never goes away, but it doesn’t wrap around the entire globe, so at some point when the sun is rising or setting, there is a gap for the sunlight to break through and bounce

Monday inspiration

I took this shot awhile ago in my backyard – but decided to post it for some Macro Monday Photography inspiration. This bleeding heart plant is was planted by the previous owners of my home and it continues to get larger each year. Always good for some macro photography. The trick is to get some images on a day when the air is still. This flower has some long stems that hang out pretty far and it tends to sway quite a bit with even the slightest breeze. Nikon D200, Tamron 180mm Macro lens, Bogen Tripod, Really Right Stuff Ball head.
