“Impressionistic Reflections”

Been kind of slow around here lately , really bad fall this year no colors, now it is so blasted cold in November I don’t even want to go outside.  At least I am not coaching basketball this year, for the first time in fifteen years, so I really don’t have an excuse for not getting any work done….Rightttt!!!

So I have been working some images I did get earlier this fall, and this is one of them, a shot of the reflections and only the reflections of a group of trees in a creek. I was trying to create one of those impressionistic images I have been seeing on the net the last few weeks, hopefully this comes close to what I was after.  I kinda like the effect but I am not to sure about the color, I wish I could have got some vivid fall colors in this but it wasn’t meant to be this year.

I guess I am going to have to make some visits to the florist so I can start shooting again and get the old creative juices flowing, thanks for stopping by and having a look !!



“Cypress Sunset”

You don’t hear that one often in Indiana, actually there are a couple of places where you can view Cypress trees in the state and that is the Southwestern part around Evansville and right here in Southern Indiana not far from Madison.

I photographed these at The Muscatatuck NWR about 40 miles north of here near Seymour, it is a 8800 acre birders paradise made up of shallow running rivers and numerous ponds and lakes. During the fall and spring it is not uncommon to view over 250 species of birds along with deer and river otters.

If you are ever in the area I would highly recommend a trip to the Refuge it would be well worth your time.
