Here is a image from last summer when a thunderstorm had blown thru Madison Indiana and left that great light you don’t see very often what I like to call storm light. Storms that time of the year usually form and blow thru late afternoon and evening which is usually sweet light anyway but throw a storm into it and watch that light then !!!
I sat out the storm at home but walked down to main street and waited for the light to shine thru. And low and behold it came out just like I was hoping, main street was washed in a warm soft light that added a golden touch to everything it touched. The same image in regular light would have not been very interesting but this light changed everything and added a beautiful dimension to the picture.
I hope you enjoy the image and thanks for taking the time to stop by and take a look.
In the time I have been away from this blog many things have happened in our community of Madison Indiana and one of the great things was the opening of the new Madison Milton bridge. Many who had traveled the old bridge can tell stories of how bad it shook or meeting a large vehicle coming from the other direction and thinking you wouldn’t make it thru, and there were many mishaps on the bridge as well.
But all that changed with the new bridge. The lanes are very wide and it has a great pedestrian walkway built on the outside of the bridge as well. So travel over the new bridge has a totally different feel than the old one. But the old one had some pretty cool character to it and it was great to photograph as well.
So I thought I might start sharing some photos of the new bridge just so you can see for yourself in case you never get to drive over it. This image came last winter and I really like how the bridge was throwing down that great shadow over the landscape. With the snow and cold I thought it was best processed as a black and white conversion to show the mood in the valley that day.
I will share more in the days ahead and I hope you enjoy this image and thanks for stopping by and taking a look !!
Thought I would share more from that wonderful morning where the light just wouldn’t quit and I was able to create numerous images of that awesome experience. Being outdoors in search of photographic opportunities is always a good thing but when you combine it with fantastic light and it becomes really special.
This one was taken when the fog had still not quite began to burn off and what little light was getting thru added a surreal touch to the trees that I was using as my subject. I actually came away with what I was looking for in that moment and thru the years I have found that is a hard thing to do.
I hope you enjoy the image and hopefully you can find a morning like this one and be able to experience that special light that doesn’t come around very often. Thanks for stopping by and taking a look at my work.
Since I am trying catch up on my posting here is a quick one from last fall, this was at the trail head for Hoffman Falls at Clifty Falls State Park in Madison Indiana. Fall is one of the best times to hike at Clifty Falls with its deep gorges, waterfalls and wonderful display of colorful leaves you can’t go wrong with a hike thru this wonderful state park located in Southern Indiana.
Here is another image from the same morning that I shared in the previous post, the light was wonderful that morning and it seemed like every image I captured came out great, don’t you wish every morning was like that.
Clifty Falls is a wonderful place to photograph and to take part in many other outdoor activities, hiking in the park is always at the top of the list for the many visitors who use the park, if you are ever in Southern Indiana it is a must see location.
Thanks for stopping by and taking a look and I hope you enjoyed the image.
