08/04/10 And the Clouds Parted...
I took this shot on my way home from dropping off Joey, Johnny, and Madi at school yesterday. This shot was taken at the same time of day, also facing east, and on the same road as this shot from a few weeks ago:
I guess I think they might make nice companion pieces on the wall someplace (but not at my house because there is no wall space!).
The original shots are horribly dark:
Without the use of HDR in this case, the pictures would only be for the recycle bin.
I really wish the solitary tree was separated out more from the forested area behind it in the photo. In reality, there was quite a good break inbetween it and the woods. I've been admiring that tree in the field for years, so consider this "I should shoot that some day" locale checked off on my list. I actually had to park and walk a ways on the road to get to this spot, so it's not something I'd want to do too often (wet grass and too many cars).
Johnny's first day of kindergarten was fine...for both of us. Thanks for all your words of encouragement on the event and the school shot from yesterday. Remember, my kids are on year round school, 4 'in' sessions of 9 weeks and 4 out sessions for 3 or more weeks each. I really like the schedule. They are next out in October.
