There were storms popping on and off all day today. This one was north of town and was pretty epic. I tried to get a panorama but it didn’t come out well. We are suppose to be getting a cold front coming through Thursday night/Friday morning. I’m hoping to get some lightning shots. It’s been too long since I was able to get any.
This evening on the way to get some groceries at Walmart, I noticed the sun going down behind the clouds. I stopped in the parking lot and grabbed a few shots. I thought it was really cool how the sunrays were shooting out from the clouds.
This evening, Melody and I were out getting sunset shots when we had a little impromptu photo shoot at the place where I like to get sunset and storm shots. This is best shot of the few taken. We both wanted something out of the ordinary with the edit, something grungy, post-apocalyptic looking. I hope I conveyed what we were looking for.
This evening, Melody and I went to a different place to get sunset shots. While getting shots, Melody noticed spider webs in the field. I grabbed my 75-300mm lens and got some shots. I thought it was a very cool shot to get.
Today is a special milestone in my photography. Explanation time – the numbers I put as the title have two meanings. The first one tells of the picture of the day for this year. The second number is the total number of days I’ve taken a picture of the day. So today is my 1,000th day in a row I’ve taken a picture of the day. I went out to get sunset shots this evening because it looked so cool. Not bad for my 1,000th picture of the day in my opinion.
I want to personally thank everyone who has followed, liked, and commented on my blog these past couple of years. It is greatly appreciated. Now on to my next 1,000 pictures.
This is an attempted 360 degree panorama shot while getting sunset shots this evening. I got in the middle of the road and started shooting in a circle before cars drove by. This is 22 shots merged together. Not bad for my 999th picture of the day. I’m not sure what I’m going to do for my 1,000th picture of the day tomorrow. I’m still thinking on that.
I got this sunset in a different area than I usually get my sunset shots. I loaded up the whole family, minus my son, and drove west of town to get some sunset shots. I got 76 shots and came back home so I could edit and post my picture. I had quite a few really good shots to chose from but really liked this one. I didn’t edit this at all in Lightroom and only used a Detail Enhancer action in Photoshop. Nothing else.
Today was an awesome fall day here in southern Louisiana. As the day progressed, I noticed high clouds in the area. It had been a while since my last sunset, I went out and shot it this evening. It was gorgeous. This is a four shot panorama in portrait mode. I really love getting sunset shots.
For my picture of the day, I did something a little bit different. We had to leave early from tearing down the set of the play we were in. This flame is burning at a restaurant next door to the theater. I grabbed a few shots of it. I merged three of the shots together and added a couple of grungy looking textures to it.
It was a clear, beautiful day here in southern Louisiana today. I wanted to take advantage of it and get a star trail this evening. I did get a meteor in the shot and it looks like a satellite going through the shot. This is 66 x 30 second shots merged together.
