The light on the creek is a really interesting shot.I wasn't sure what I was looking at.

Lana, my friend Kristin posts her photography daily on her blog. We spent the day together recently and she wrote a post about it. One of the photographs that she posted was of a sign reflected in a pair of glass doors with a padlock on them. I really loved how the picture turned out. You can find it here if you are interested...

Take care!

These are gorgeous, Lana. I especially like that bridge rail, light on the creek and the path through the woods. Great job.

Lana, looks like a lovely place to visit. I love the bluebird and the first flower shot is beautiful. the lighting on these shots are great.

Can't id the flower Lana..but the images are wonderful, the shot of the boardwalk zigzagging thru the woods is really special. The light in the bg and all the other elements come together for a very nice composition, nicely done !!

Cloudia; Indeed. :)

Larry; Thanks! I liked all of the things that were going on there, as well as the colors.

jennifer; Thanks for the tip!

earthtoholly; Thanks, hon. I don't usually focus on man-made objects, but the way the light hit the railing of the bridge just begged to be photographed!

eileeninmd; Thanks hon. The area's a wonderful place to visit, particularly as it's just over a mile from our house. ;)

bernie kasper; Thanks so much for the kind comment, hon! I always appreciate your input. :)

The lighting in these photos is just spectacular. I really liked the composition of the walkway photo as well. You are going to make me have to explore that preserve. I'm not quite sure how to get there though?

Lana Gramlich said...

Heather; Thanks, hon. It's a really nice preserve! I'd be glad to print you out a map &/or explain where it is. I can either catch you at the library or you can e-mail me (which might be quicker and more efficient.) It's really pretty easy to get to. Only 5 miles out of town. Unfortunately there don't seem to be good maps online, but I can put one together for you. Let me know!
