I really meant to try to take more photos last week to match up with the daily Capture Your 365 prompts, but after taking over 200 pictures at our annual church beach trip, then working through all those photos in Lightroom, I didn’t get but a few photos for this week. Oh well, life moves on…
So this first photo doesn’t really fit any of the photo prompts for last week, but I just had to share it! We were watching these dolphins all afternoon at the beach, and at first, I wasn’t sure if my 200mm lens would be able to capture these guys out in the ocean. It wasn’t until I loaded the photos into Lightroom that I saw this image. I was so excited to have captured this! I did have 8×10 prints made of this photo to send to our Compassion kids along with some dolphin facts and printables I found on Pinterest.
Day 260 – On A Board: Yes, I know we are officially in autumn, but summer is my favorite season! The nights and mornings are cooler here, but we are still seeing 80 degree temperatures during the day. Just warm enough to sit outside in the afternoon with bare feet. I am soaking it in while it lasts.
ISO 800, 135mm, f/16, 1/4 sec
Day 261 – Sugar and Spice: I really should have done some baking on this day, but I didn’t. The moon was so incredibly full and bright on this night. I love to be reminded to take moments like this to just be still and be amazed by His creation.
ISO 100, 50mm, f/16, 0.6 sec
Day 262 – Morning Sun: Unless I get up really early, throw on some clothes, and drive down the road, there is no way I am going to photograph the morning sun. So I thought I would experiment with a little bit of sun flare on this one with a small aperture. Probably not one I will print and hang on my wall, but fun to play with.
