What can I say? I love landscapes. I’m not quite as thrilled at how they come across in my photos. What’s hard to capture in all its glory is the third distance level, the misty mountain. I’m most pleased with the first one. I think the framing really worked. I did crop it a tad to bring the mountain in closer. But that’s all. I’ve sworn off white balance for the most part.

Here’s the same one from a lower angle. You can’t see the mountain, but I like the arrangement of houses.

This was my favorite view of the day because of the long vista and the layered fore-, mid- and background. But it is also the one where the misty mountain feel most failed in the photo. I cropped and cropped trying to bring it out. But I think it was a case of “you had to be there.”

Another long shot for you and then someone’s fabulous garden.

So… these people have a lot of tulips. There’s also a row up by the house, which didn’t come out in the photo. Here’s what’s so great to me about the tulips. They are a sign of patience, foresight and laying the groundwork for a bright future. Then reaping what one sows.

  2. Great shots, Nia! I like landscapes, but I am not good at taking photos of them. Loved the mist and the several layers on your photos! Have a great week, my friend! 🙂

  3. Did you put your white balance on cloudy Nia? Hills and such are hard to get clear in the distance when it’s misty. If you were using auto on your camera it will go for the most light. Let me know what kind of camera you’re using. I’m learning as I go too. I like the arrangement of houses photo. the tulips are pretty.
    Cheers

      1. You’re welcome Nia. If you use one of the manual settings, put the camera in live view and scroll through to the histogram. You adjust that and the camera sets the best aperture and speed for the shot. It’s great for those cloudy days. Cheers

      2. You’re welcome Nia. You’ll find that more you work with manual settings the better you feel about your shots. looking forward to seeing the results.
