Honorable Mention earned in the Oakland County Parks Photo Contest

As readers of my posts know, I enjoy entering photo contest. Photo contests are a great way to put your photos out for other to see, to get your name out there and see what people think of your work. With small contests the categories are pretty specific as in the annual Oakland County Parks contest. I enjoy the outdoors, I enjoy parks, I enjoy people watching in the parks and Oakland County is right next-door so why not. And the result was an Honorable Mention for my “Buhl Lake Fisherman”, and a wonderful evening in a beautiful park.

Trip to Arizona

Took a week to explore parts of Arizona, from Phoenix northward, most notably Sedona, Jerome and the Grand Canyon. Surprisingly, the weather co-operated, photographically with the threat of rain, light rain, partly cloudy skies and mild temperatures too for most of the trip. The photos below really drive home the point of shooting during the “golden hours” around sunrise and sunset. Even with all the digital tools available today in post processing there is only so much you can do to make up for mid afternoon light as the photo below from the Grand Canyon shows.
