To get out and walk around after a day in the house. Sometimes I just have to take the photo to get it out of my system. The fresh air is great and the coldness of a beginning spring is great for my lungs. This spring does not seem to be bringing too much newness just a little darkness almost like fall.
It is always a rule to carry a camera at all times no matter how inconvenient it is. Not a stunning place, but one that will bring back fond memories for me. The entire family out for a walk and not really being aware of our surroundings this wonderful sunset comes along. As I looked up I notice that several photographers has gathered to take the shot. I shuttered that I did not have a camera and then I remembered my Leica DLUX 4. I had it ready to shoot and using the program mode I was able to capture this shot. It capped off a perfect afternoon. No stress, or mess, just fun and time.
One of my favorite places in the world. It is a small wonder but its peace and quiet is beyond all. I have finally captured all of the seasons there and I am still working on Winter and fog. Fog was almost done. I went there on the foggiest of days but a sin occurred. I did not bring a camera and so I missed the greatest shots. I will continue to stalk there and of course the lesson learned again I will bring the camera. I have a small one but I can only go there during my lunch hour before it gets dark during the winter so sometimes it is too much to bring it along. I use a DMC 07 for my pocket camera and the photos are spectacular for such a small piece. I do use a heavy tripod when I bring it along. I had a small Velbron but it seems as though that is just to flimsy. So I use the big one.
I can not describe the peace it brings over me and when I am setting up shots I get so involved the afternoon is gone and I have enjoyed every minute of it. There will certainly be more shot of this place. I thought I saw a crane there once so you know I will be on the constant look out for it.
