An empty bandstand creates a striking image in the fog at Blowing Rock, North Carolina
Fog creates a mystic environment for photographers. While the clarity is somewhat blurred, it adds a bit of mystery to the images. Normally a clear lake on a sunny day, Bass Lake in North Carolina is shrouded in fog creating an eerie image.
Will be posting images of North Carolina featuring its rural beauty. Tranquility of a farm in mountains and forests of North Carolina
Who needs artificial lighting to create an image? Nature provides effective back lighting to highlight designs in yuca leaves.

Reflections off a glass building cast psychedelic images on an adjacent building adding intrigue to the photo
The wonderful thing about using reflections when taking photos is that they can completely alter the image from something fairly straightforward to something richer or abstract or otherwise more artistic. Here is a reflection of the landscape at sunset in a small body of water.
In reflection photography, using water, windows, mirrors or any sort of reflective surface can change an image into a work of art. Here the shine of an antique car and its curved surfaces and wheel cap create interesting reflections.
Reflections of a building on glass somehow distort the image making it surreal
Images of clouds while flying with them and above them create cloudscape images from a higher altitude
Soft clouds at dusk, bathed by rays of the setting sun against a dark blue sky, create an artsy cloudscape image

In this image, the fan captured at a slow shutter speed creates soft, but orderly designs hinting of shape, form, and texture in monochrome
The main elements that bring and emphasize order in this composition are line, shape, pattern, and color drawing the viewer’s eye to the center of the image

Despite the attractive hotel on the shore, the red kayak gets prime attention in this image.
Color has a significant impact on our perceptions, emotions and physicality. Incorporating the color red into photography denotes passion and bold emotion. Because it commands our attention, red brings text and subjects to the central focus of an image. Will be posting this week images with red as a predominant color to attract attention.
Here is an image of abstract reflections on water.
Taking a break from our previously scheduled images to post photos from the beautiful snowfall last week in Hickory, North Carolina. Mounds of snow at the eighth green at Player’s Ridge Golf Course.
