A lot to be thankful for

For a weekend that was forcasting gloominess, I wound up with a lot to be thankful for. The weather was supposed to be rainy and cold, we were away from home for yet another weekend, and I was not going to be able to see my folks for the holiday. All in all it seemed shaping up to be a rather dismal Thanksgiving indeed. But that’ll teach me to wallow in expectatation! Just looking at these beautiful composites I captured this weekend makes me remember all that I have to be thankful for: the unreliability of meterologists (look at those blue skies!!!), my homes away from home, and the family that has become my blood. These ones are for Carter, who inpired; for Cole, who made me laugh; and for my parents, who were with me in spirit.

Love Mike.

  1. I was going to say something similar to Bob…. though not necessarily in the foreground… just something anywhere to set perspective. The one with the sun in it compared to the one without for example. It just seems to pop more… to allow the eye to start the viewing from a fixed point. I really love the one with the sun in it. ‘and he will make the face of heaven so fine, that all the world will be in love with night, and pay no worship to the garish sun’ Shakespeare was a douche.

  2. Mike,

    When doing sky and cloud try experimenting with a polarised filter, it is quite interesting and with digital you can experiment a lot.

    Vast fields, sky and or sunsets may look good to you, as you are standing there looking at them. Howeverin a photo they should (I think) have someting in the foreground.

    All good—carry on


  3. Hi Mike,

    These photos are fantastic! Very, very impressive. You are lucky to have such a lovely place to spend some weekends. You make me want to jump on a plane and fly over to see my country again!
