This past few days, my family and I have done a little exploring of our local area. It’s been lightly raining almost everyday for the past week; cold, overcast, foggy and wet. I think it actually makes for excellent photography weather.
This next shot was made outdoors on a peaceful, overcast day. We were out enjoying the day at a local garden. Under some trees there, my son found a bench to sit on for a moment. One of my older girls saw him sitting alone and came over to keep him company. I turned and fired before the moment was gone. I love this shot! Manual focusing even a very shallow depth-of-field lens like the Minolta 100mm f/2.8 Macro is made so easy with the A7’s Focus Peaking feature.
Here is a 100% view of the shot above. (it’s a tad over-sharpened for printing)
On another outing, my family and I went for a walk on some local trails. The path takes you out over some wetlands. With all the rain we’ve been having, it was quite full.
The extra moisture has brought out some really interesting fungi.
This big cluster here has completely taken over the top of a stump.
A mile or so into the walk, we came upon a tunnel that made a nice setting for a quick photo of one of my daughters. The point where light began to falloff inside the tunnel gave me a simple yet punchy way to frame her.
That’s all I have for tonight. Hope you enjoyed the photos!
