Bridge Lake Photo Group members have been busy! Check out all the recent additions from our December 5, 2014 meeting. Below are a few samples:
Although the above image appears to be almost monochrome, Darryl has caught delicate cyan blue and purple magenta bands in the reflected dawn sky – a beautiful tranquil early winter scene.
On the other hand, Nigel Hemingway has captured a much more active scene! Mud is flying everywhere, the back wheel is blurred with desperate motion, the car is thickly coated with Cariboo gumbo and the viewer is left to wonder, “What happened next?”.
Larry returned, with a bunch of iPhone photos, from a Maui visit just in time for the snow. He threatens to return and one can see why, since those are clouds in the distance, NOT snow:
Chub Neufeld snapped a wonderful view of a feasting flicker. He took the photograph with his Panasonic Lumix ZS40 (it has a 30 X optical zoom which Chub has used to advantage since the flicker was about 20 feet away and the photograph was shot through a basement window!). That’s the stucco wall of the garage in the background.
As usual, Sue Wolfe gave us some wonderful images. It’s hard to select which one to include in this post, so I encourage you to visit her Photographers Showcase page (as well those of the other photographers featured here) to see the full collection. Here’s my favourite:
And finally, another monochrome image (in an earlier post I showed a monochrome and a tilt-shift example) together with its colour version. Which appeals to you?
