I began taking photography seriously about six years ago, when I purchased my first Canon Rebel…. Read more

Weekly Photo Challenge: Sun

The challenge this week is to capture the sun!  I usually battle with the sun when developing images…. When there’s too much sun-glare it can wreak havoc on an image.   So, it’s nice, for a change, to have an occasion to relish the sun!

Not a bobcat in my clouds and lovin spoonbills – it’s a Florida Panther

I’m enjoying working with my photos and enhancing them with Photoshop Light-Room 4.  I’ve taught myself how to use it via trial and error and experimenting.  However, I have no idea how a picture of a Florida Panther bobcat that I’d been editing ended up being embedded in the bottom left corner of EVERY picture I work on?  All of these pics are in an export file, and every photo I export the Florida Panther bobcat on the left had corner of the of the photo is embedded….but how?  The Florida Panther Bobcat is not in the export file….so how does he end up in my cloud and Roseate Spoonbill pictures?

So, clearly I have not learned nearly enough about editing pictures when panthers bobcats mingle in my clouds and with my lovin spoonbills! Hah!

Anyway, click on the pics to see a bigger version of it while I go and figure out what the heck is going on!

If anyone has an idea how/why this is occurring, I’d sure appreciate it….

Weekly Photo Challenge: Spoonbill Sunset

There was a beautiful sunset last evening in Ft. Lauderdale.  So many different shades of pink and orange and brown filled the horizon as if painted there….and, I didn’t have my camera!

But, when a Roseate Spoonbill came to visit me one afternoon, I shot pictures until the light faded to near nothingness.

Can you see how the sunset seems to tease the water as it moves in with its colors?
