Two things you need to know about me: I love photography and I love color. Just ask my former fashion magazine co-worker, Ryan, who used to call my sense of style “garish” for all the use of bright pops of pigment I employ. The same could be said for my photography.
I have fun photographing patterns and textures, so this fruit market in Jerusalem was a dream to visit as a photographer.
I know it’s pretty expected to submit a sky photo for “blue,” but I just adore the deep blue hue of the sky that my wide angle lens allowed me to capture—and how tiny the camels look punctuating the landscape—in the Negev Desert without any need for post-processing.
My gorilla trek in Rwanda was one of my life’s greatest experiences. While I’d love to go back and do it all again with better equipment, I love how thriving and green the rainforest was there—we were traveling during the height of rainy season—and how the dappled light seeping through the trees illuminated this big guy as he was having a morning snack. It’s almost as if he were an angel with an aura of light surrounding him!
If you read my guest post on WordPress.com’s Weekly Photo Challenge, you know that SVV and I are fans of long exposure shots. While in South Africa last year, we took a weekend trip to West Coast National Park and Tsaarbank. I have never seen waves so strong, which resulted in ocean spray that shot into the air more than 20 feet. I love that we were able to capture that with a longer-than-average shutter speed.
Which of the above shots is your favorite?
