Today I decided to take a walk in the Ecolab. Honestly it was more because I had to take some photos for class. It was a freezing cold walk, but I got some good shots. The Ecolab is a beautiful place and the snow only made it prettier. As I walked around I heard one of the coolest sounds that occurs in right now here in Indiana. That is the calls of the Sandhill Cranes that are migrating right now. They are beautiful birds and they are moving from Canada to the south. You often hear them before you see them. So if you’re in the area and hear a weird noise, look up and you might seem some.
Another night of photos and I got this shot. Trees and the night sky. It looks like a reflection. Maybe it is. Is the camera pointed up at the night sky or down looking into a puddle, a reflection of what is above?
While the leaves have not been the most spectacular this year, there are still some very pretty trees around. This is a Norway Maple that had turned a beautiful solid yellow and when you looked up the branches contrasted perfectly.
The trees are beginning to change colors and Fall is upon us here in Central Indiana. This is my favorite season and it can be spectacular for shooting. It is amazing to look up and see the incredible colors. It is nature’s last hurrah before winter comes on and things go dormant. So take a minute to look up or around you. There are some amazing things around us.
I do a lot of driving and right now the weather is perfect for having the windows rolled down and the sun roof open. It’s one of my favorite things to have everything open as I drive down the road. Usually the photos are shot through the windows or through the front window. But every now and the you look up and a shot presents itself. Now I have been told not to shoot while driving, by a few people. But sometimes the shots are just too good and I try to be as safe as possible when I shoot. I will have you know that I learned this technique from the best 😉
Yup. Spent a lot of time looking up today. Wondering why. (Something we should never do but always do). Not knowing why we endure the pain that we do is sometimes harder than the pain itself.
The white, fluffy clouds are so comforting, why NOT have your head in the clouds?! The view from above can be lonely but also so very peaceful!
Shot, through the sun roof, while pondering life, while looking up.
