I’ve decided to take a break from wildlife for the day. I’m not burned out with wildlife. No, not by any means. Been kind of wondering if I should just focus on photographing that and landscapes, but I digress. Today, I was just really in need of a bit of stillness.
I love wildlife, but wildlife moves. Life moves…constantly. Sometimes, it moves like a freight train. At those times, I just need stillness. Nothing that moves….unless it by the grace of wind. Just stillness. That is why I chose these pictures.
I’ve been trying to master the art of long exposure. I may not have the skills for that, but I’m trying. These were an attempt at that. I think that they pretty much just turned out like good old fashion, regular exposure, but I like them just the same.
When I look at them, they have an eerie kind of stillness. At least I think. It was a chilly, foggy morning. The misty smoke coming up off the water and the way that the sun was reflecting off of it….I love that. It made me just want to grab a blanket and a steaming hot cup of cocoa in my favorite mug, sit down on the dirty old log, and just disappear for a bit. I guess that goes without saying, though. It’s kind of who I am.
