Dahlia Garden Flower Photography

Dahlia Garden Flower Photography

I planted some dahlias before the rain arrived this weekend. A couple of flowers were in full bloom and I decided to take out the macro lens to capture nature's beauty on display. Overcast sky provided great conditions as it beautifully balances the light. Overcast sky acts as a giant softbox that evenly spreads the light across the floral and provides pristine conditions for Flower Photography.

Good light and happy photo making!

Florida Bird Photography at Wakodahatchee Wetlands

Wakodahatchee Wetlands west of Delray Beach in Palm Beach County is a pristine birding and bird photography location in South Florida. When I parked the car I heard a lot of bird voices coming from the area. I walked up the boardwalk and when I got my first glimpse of this treasure, I was just blown away by the amount of nesting Everglades Storks. While making my rounds along the boardwalk I good close looks of the nesting birds and many other species like Great Blue Herons, Green Herons, Egrets, Anhingas, Purple Gallinules and Tri-Colored Herons. What a great place for an outdoor adventure combined with fabulous nature photography opportunities.

Follow me on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook for my latest wildlife Photography images and more bird photos from Wakodahatchee Wetlands - thanks.

Florida Sunset and Jupiter Lighthouse Photography from DuBrois Park

Sunset at Jupiter Inlet Light

My last photo adventure brought me to Jupiter Inlet Light. This historic landmark is located in Jupiter, Florida along the Loxahatchee River and north side of the inlet. I scouted DuBois Park as a photo location with potential for great pictures of the famous red lighthouse at sunset.

Upon arrival I worked my way closer to the Inlet Light until I reached the pier that provided fantastic views of the Jupiter Inlet Light. In this image I incorporated the coconut and palm trees as silhouettes in the foreground while the beautiful sunset hues framed the small lighthouse. The most tricky part was to wait for people watching the magic of the colorful sunset light to unfold. Patience paid of and I succeeded to capture a few images before the wonderful light faded away into the night.

Aperture was set to f/11 providing a shutter speed of 1 second at ISO100. During post processing I followed my routine  work flow where I removed unwanted dust spots, adjusted lighting, color saturation and contrast before sharpening the final image of Jupiter Lighthouse.

Good light and happy photo making!

Parliament Inn in Delray Beach: Hidden Paradise and perfect base to Explore Surounding for Nature and Wildlife Photography

Parliament Inn Delray Beach

We stayed a week at one of our favorite places in South Florida; the Parliament Inn in Delray Beach. Delray is a coastal town in Palm Beach County, approximately 40 minutes north of Fort Lauderdale. The Parliament Inn is a hidden paradise with well maintained apartments. The gardening and landscaping are spectacular and the outdoor pool area provide an relaxing environment to completely chill. The Atlantic Ocean and beach is only 5 minutes away by foot and makes for great sunrise and sunset adventures. The surrounding areas like Lotchahatchee Wildlife Refuge, Green Cay or Wakodahatchee Wetlands allow for plenty of nature and wildlife exploration in short driving distance. Can't wait to get back.

Boston Night Photography - How, Where and When: North End Christopher Columbus Waterfront Park

Boston Photography Galleries

Friday night I traveled to Boston and explored the skyline opportunities from the Commercial Wharf in the North End. There are limited views directly from the wharf but the view in front of Joe's American Bar and Grill is great. 

Equipped with my Canon wide-angle lens I was able to incorporate the waterfront and parts of the Boston Marriott Long Wharf hotel as well as the colorful gazebo at Christopher Columbus Park into the composition. The background is dominated by the historic Custom House and beautiful Market Place Center building. Upon arrival I set up and patiently waited for the magic of twilight to appear. It still amazes me when the short moment of perfect balance between city lights and night light occurs and transforms the urban scenery into a magical scenery. 

Aperture was set to f/11 providing a shutter speed of 13 seconds at ISO400. During post processing I followed my routine  work flow where I removed unwanted dust spots, adjusted lighting, color saturation and contrast before sharpening the final image of Boston North End Christopher Columbus Waterfront Park.

Good light and happy photo making!
