The first two times I went to the Nederlands (Holland) I visited only Amsterdam. We did rent a car and visited Castle country but it was a gray rain filled day. Even the day we went to the Keukenhof Gardens was stormy. On this trip we started in Amsterdam but then took a river cruise and the second day we woke up in Kinderdijk Nederlands and finally learned the meaning behind the expression Dutch Clouds
I am going to be posting images that I may have posted before with a candidate # thereby collecting a list of what I feel would be likely candidates to print for a gallery show of new images of only digital photography. Right now I am reviewing images that are scenic in nature. This is Washington D.C. as seen from The Speaker’s Balcony of the U.S. Capitol
A must see destination in Maui is Haleakala which is an inactive volcano at the island’s center. Most visitors get up in the middle of the night to see the sunrise over the crater. If you do that however you miss another wonderful sight. This is west Maui in the morning sun.
The one thing you can be sure of when visiting Maui is that it will rain every day. However, Lahaina is on the “desert” side of the island and gets less rain than the interior or the south and east sides of the island. Still it will rain. The good news is that because of the prevailing trade winds it is rare to get anything more than a short shower or thunder storm and ten minutes later the sun comes out and it’s pool or beach time.
This picture was taken from a boat out of Lahaina before a short and cooling shower.
I think most people as children want to be able to fly. We dream about it and some actually jump out of airplanes and off cliffs with the appropriate equipment just to be able to simulate the experience of flight. As a photographer capturing birds in flight has been a goal for decades and I have captured a few. However many times the sky is boring behind the bird so this time I just replaced the sky with one I like better.
I love overcast days in the autumn. The sun breaks through and acts like a key-light for highlighting natures wonder. Soon this backyard scene of ours will become all white and we will be on a beach somewhere else.
