I worked on this one in photoshop to bring out the effect in sky. The foreground of the tree adds a different view to the shot. This shot is posted my flickr and 500px site.

As summer ends and fall is around the corner the fog is starting to appear in the mornings. Here is one of the scene from the early morning fog just a few minutes after sunrise

A Carpet of Pastels

Reflection of pastels
Well the sky was blown away by the red color on wednesday(Aug. 22), unfortunately I was not there for catching the colors at right time. A tad late I decide to put down the aperture to 22 and took a long exposure shots of the end of the colors. Lucky for me I could quickly find a right spot for capture the fading reflections. Three exposures and photomatix does a great processing I just love it.

Full Moon

August 2011 Full Moon by powershotpix
August 2011 Full Moon, a photo by powershotpix on Flickr.

Grabbing moon used to be a night out job for me. Not anymore now and not scared of the bright featureless full moon as I used to be in the beginning.
This is what I do after many experiments and reading other experienced peers.
1. camera on daylight setting
2. ISO 100
3. Set to Aperture or manual and set f/8.0 and shutter 100
4. Put lens in manual focus and adjust the clarity. (It is impossible to get a focus with moon so small on the screen).
5. See on the screen and play around shutter till the contrast for dark features is good.
6. Now before clicking adjust the moon to the center of the screen and try the zoom 10X
7. The moon is going to get jumpy and move out of the screen fast so you need to adjust the final details with lens focus ring fast and click.
8. If you do not get it right repeat steps 6 and 7 to get the fine details.
9. Crop whatever size shape you want. There is lot of dark space around. I prefer to fill the frame as much as possible.

I wanted to catch the fall colors in morning so drove down to the mer bleue bog in early fall so there was enough fog and the fall colors glowed in the morning light

Over the mast

Hot summer days in july lead to a lot of fog due to high content of water vapor and volatile matter in the air. Light clouds and light foggy air gives a beautiful effect and once in a while a lucky chance of have yatch pass close by. The water color is muddy because of a afternoon storm that poured down a bit.

Fiery Reflections

Winds blowing from south-west as the clouds try to cover up the sun and sun runs away to the other part of the world. Amazing cat and mouse chase of storm and sun is seen in this picture. This neither lasts long nor reoccurs frequently.

A long day of visiting out with the family I decided to just drove down instinctively to have the day fill up with some shots. This is one of the many I got trying to photograph silhouettes of the balanced stones. I love the reflected light how it goes around the rocks
