Busy, Busy Saturday

Ever since we moved into our house I’ve driven right by a nice spot that has begging me to just get out of bed early with a camera to see  what I could capture.  The past couple weeks have brought these calls even louder, with the great sunrises and rolling fog.

This morning I met up with Jay at sunrise and we wandered around near Route 29 at Hilltop Road, and got some pretty good shots.  I’m very happy with the results and think I’ll be getting a couple of them framed and put up in the house.

Here are a couple of previews.  View the collection on my new, SmugMug hosted site ejiphotos.com.  Here’s a direct link to the slideshow.  Enjoy!

We then made a trip to Carlinville, IL to Bloom’s Orchard for some apple picking. David had a blast and slept the entire way back, woo!

Pumpkin Suicide is sad, and preventable 😦

We finished up the day with Jay and Katherine stopping by for dinner and some TV. Happy weekend, everyone!

    EJ, do you release your photos under any sort of licensing (Creative Commons, as an example) or are they free as in beer?

    Neither at the moment, I’m kind of in a holding pattern until I figure out what I want to do with them.

    Until then, they’re just Mine, as in Mine.

    Those are excellent! You have a good eye–again, as I mentioned before, perhaps you’ve missed your true calling. I really enjoyed them. Thank you for sharing.

    What kind of lens did you have for the flowers? That’s the kind of pictures I used to take with the Macro lens on my AE-1.

    Thanks and I’m glad you enjoyed them.

    I just checked and for the purple and white ones were taken with my 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6. The purple was taken at 135mm, f5.6 and the other at 80mm, f/5.

    The gold and red ones were taken with my 50mm f/1.4. The gold was f/8 and the red was f/1.8.
