This is My Backyard

Well, not really, but glad I got your attention.  This location is only 4.5 miles away from my house.  As I am planning an extensive photography travel vacation across 7 to 8 states, this photograph gave me a few thoughts.  I always come back to my favorite photographs that were taken within a very close radius of my home.  This photograph was taken in mid-Winter (2013) with very high winds. I waited very patiently, close to an hour to get this shot.  The inspiration was to capture light similar to paintings.  Paint the photograph with light and the color will come.  I had two pairs of gloves on.  I was quick enough to take the gloves off and take this shot, just as the sun peeked thru for just a moment, and went back behind the clouds to turn all the color to grey and white mid tones.  I am hoping to capture more great moments on my travels across the country soon.  I can't wait to meet new people, and see the beauty they see everyday in their backyard.

All my best,

Jackie Stevens

Enjoy

Well done Jackie. You are an inspiration. Waiting one hour to take a picture is unimaginable for me and many. But that is call love, passion and commitment for your passion. Keep it up.
