This is a 180 degree panoramic shot from Ballard Park over looking the Intracoastal Way Way near the Eau Gallie Causeway. The timing was a trick to catch the sun peeking over the horizon. The trick is to get enough light but not so much you leave half of the shot under or over exposed. I thinking of printing this out for a wall mural.
Sometimes I get up early to catch the perfect conditions to take a photo. This image is located near the Eau Gallie Causeway crossing the Indian River Lagoon. I like the sail boat sitting quietly waiting for the sun to raise that the day to begin a new day.
I was shooting in my backyard with trying to make up my mind on selling my macro lens. It is a great lens and have shot some nice images with it but I wondering if I might more use out of a different lens. The lens I have now is the Canon Telephoto EF 180mm f/3.5 L Macro. The “L” is Canon professional line of lens. Joking the term “L” lens is also “luxury” for the high price tag associated with the series of lens.
Sometimes you have to get close to your subject. Sometimes you may not to be that close. Lucky I do not have a fear of spiders or huge monster spiders we get here in Florida. I am told it is a Golden silk orb-weaver, I found this guy way out in the deep swamps of Central Florida, I was out in Bull Creek Wild Life area a few days ago.
I was out early today and I wander out to the Viera Wet Lands. This is a great place for bird and wild life photography. I was working with shooting silhouettes of nature. I was working with this idea because of the heavy over cast skies did not allow sharp or contrast light.
It appears to be some type of local King Fisher.
