05.17.2021 Yet another weekend chore running driveby

Once again I had to stop on my way home from running a few errands Sunday morning. I had been out photographing prior but came up relatively empty.  I made a few images but at first review none may see the light of day, or backlight of a computer screen. After the shopping stops as I drove home on Moody Bridge Road this scene with some popular oaks which have been here before and the spring color in the background stopped me.

This was taken with the SX-60.  Not sure why not the 5D Mark IV but there’s no explaining me sometimes. Reviewing in Lightroom at first the sky seemed pretty washed out but processing brought back some of the blue which I think makes this more effective.

There is one more sunrise shot from Saturday but that is waiting in the wings so there are not too many in a row.  It was a good morning.

    It is the extra effort at home that often makes the difference between a first-class photo and a mediocre one.

    Love that spring blush of color! I’ve been thinking of that walnut plantation near the refuge. Must be greening up nicely.

  6. I agree that bringing back the blue was a good move.

    The blue of the sky is an excellent balance for the lovely spring colours. The sort of spring scene that brings joy after winter!
