The photog class I was taking really pushed me to "escape" the confines of home and get out there in search of images for my weekly assignment. This time I was supposed to play around with f-stop and depth of field, and I thought it'd be great to go back to Lake Renwick for another recon mission. ;)
I captured some great images of some swans that were out for the warm evening, and I ended my day with a nice lake sunset.
Of course I had to put on my macro lens and look for details in the warming spring vegetation.
I love the golden hour, and took a nice reflection shot of the wharf/pier at Budde Lake as the sun turned the grass a nice golden color.
I took a pre-sunset shot, just to get a feel for where I should set up my tripod and enjoy the changing view.
This robin obliged me with a pose while I waited for the sun to sink on the horizon.
Once I was set up, I took photo after photo every couple of minutes. In post-edit, it's hard for me to choose just a few images to keep, but I force myself to be brutal in deleting as many images as I can. I aim for three, but since the sunset changes as the sun sinks, sometimes I just have to keep more. I met my goal this time with three (I think) beautiful images of a beautiful evening sunset.
I'm already planning on going back, now that the weather is a tad warmer. I'll definitely have on my walking shoes!
