Was out in the country this past week for some family time, and the sunsets were fantastic. Here are a couple of the best shots.

Bass Fishing

When in the woods last week with my youngest son and my good friend Mike, they were able to catch some nice large mouth bass on the nearby ponds.  The couple that I got shots on, the first was pretty small, but put up a good fight.  I was able to capture some breech shots as he tried to throw the hook.

**Disclaimer** NO FISH WERE HURT IN THE CAPTURE OF THESE PHOTOS. THEY WERE RELEASED BACK TO THEIR NATURAL HABITAT WHERE THEY LIVE TO FIGHT ANOTHER DAY! 😛

Panoramic Photo Experiment #2

With the storm front rolling through last night, I knew there would be a great opportunity for some nice cloud shots.  I went to a neighborhood nearby with a pond and setup for a panoramic shot of the clouds over the pond.  10 shots total to make up this panoramic.  A little post processing in photomatix pro and lightroom.  Here is the final piece.

December Reflections Part 2

On Sunday, I had taken a number of pictures to try to generate my first panoramic photo.  I was not sure how well it would turn out, but was pretty excited with the results.  All I can say is thank goodness for Photoshop!!  🙂

If you look closely, you will be able to see a couple of the pics from my original “December Reflections” Post in this one.

Let me know what you think!! 🙂

Drove by a nearby pond, and the reflections were really great with the trees and the clouds.
