Some nights the sky is on fire.  This was taken during one of my evening walks after work.  Boost up the contrast and cropped.  Shot with my Olympus TG-4.  My settings were ISO100, 4.5mm, f2.8 and 1/50sec.

Week 2
Pelican Sunset

We went camping this past weekend near Mount Dora, FL. Our campsite was right on Lake Carlton. This was the sunset over the lake the last evening we were there. That’s a white pelican. I was surprised to see a pelican so far inland.

The only editing done was some cropping. The colors were provided straight from Nature. My settings were ISO 800, f/6.1, 1/40 sec, at 200mm (70-300mm).

Week 1
My Eyes Were Bigger Than Stomach!

As mentioned, the NWG’s went to Circle B Bar Ranch near Lakeland, FL. This small gator had caught a very large rat. The rat was bigger than his mouth and he was having a difficult time swallowing it. Just one example of the interesting wildlife we saw at the Ranch.

My settings were ISO 100, f/9.0, 1/160mm, at 300mm (70-300mm). Cropped a little and applied Topaz Adjust 5’s spicify filter to add some pop.

Florida Oak with Resurrection Ferns and Spanish Moss

Thank you Becky, for creating our 2016 photography blog! I love it! Our 5th year! 🙂

This was taken on our NWG outing as Becky mentioned. The resurrection ferns on the beautiful oaks at the Circle B Bar Reserve were in all their glory and it was lovely and soothing! This tree also had a lot of Spanish moss hanging in beautiful long strands. Florida Oak trees always touch my heart and soul!

Canon 7DMII, 70-200mm f/2.8 L with a 1.4 Teleconverter. 98mm, f/4, 1/160s, ISO 200.

Long legged Spider

This is so exciting.  My girlfriends and I are starting our 5th year of No Wimpy Girls Photography blog.  This past weekend we all went to Circle B Nature preserve for a nature photo walk.  We saw all kinds of wildlife.  We saw gators, butterflies, birds, insects and flowers.  We had an awesome time.  Shot this with my Nikon D300s and 105mm lens.  My settings were ISO800, f5.6 and 1/125sec.
