Fallen Leaf Lake 02

Well, it's a new year so I should get going on posting some new photos.  I haven't been out to take any recently other than my previous Georgetown Square Christmas shots I put in the last two posts.  So, I thought I would dig back into the archives and see what I could find.  I thought this shot from Fallen Leaf Lake I took during our ski trip to Heavenly at Lake Tahoe last year would be a nice one.  Thinking of that trip is getting me excited for the next ski trip coming in about a month and I cannot wait to get some shots during that trip!  Not to mention skiing!  That's a no-brainer!

I hope you enjoy the photo and thanks for dropping by.  As always, click here to see the high-res version of the final image.

Christmas In Georgetown 02

Here is another shot taken from near the steps of the Williamson County Courthouse.  There was a full moon just above Gumbos shortly after the sun went down.  Made for a nice shot, don't you think?

Christmas in Georgetown

I went to the square in town last night get some new shots of the lights and decorations.  Those that strung the lights went even higher in the trees than previous years and I thought I better get some good shots since it's the best display so far in the 20 years we've lived here.  Also, just before I started shooting, I took a little stop into Roots Bistro and ran into Rudy Ximenez of RSX Studios, Georgetown's best photographer!  Great guy who I hope to go shooting with sometime!  Glad to finally meet him!

Anyway, below is the first of a few shots and I think I may have to go back there later in the week to get a few more.

I edited this one a little different than normal.  I did an in-camera edit to change the white balance as well as the crop and then I downloaded to my ipad and brightened the courthouse with Snapseed.  Lastly, I just imported into Lightroom and exported it with my watermark,  If there was a good way to watermark in an iPad or iPhone, that would be awesome!  I know watermark lite app exists, but I wish Lightroom mobile did it!

I hope enjoy the photo and thanks for dropping by.  As always, click here to see the high-res version of the final image.

My Happy Place - Cathedrals of Napali Coast 02

It seems everyone needs a happy place or zone or something these days.  The hyperbole (I know it's  pronounced high-pur-bowl-ee, but I like to say hyper bowl, like it's a football game) about the recent election is just very over the top. The choice we had to begin with wasn't very good anyway.  And, now that it's over, one side thinks evil incarnate has arrived and all puppies, kittens and hamsters will be declared not cute anymore and therefore exterminated, and the other side thinks the savior has arrived and not only will puppies, kittens and hamsters stay cute, but everyone will love them and they will not poop all over your new carpeting in all of your bedrooms that you can remodel now that you can keep more of your tax dollars.  All I can say, to quote Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers is, "R-E-L-A-X, relax."  We also need to "pump the brakes" a bit as they say.  Things won't be that bad, but yet I have a feeling things won't be THAT great, either.  We survived the last 8 years, the 8 years before that, the 8 years before that and so on.  Not saying this most recent event will last 8 years, but you know what I mean.  So for the last 8 years, some people needed a safe/happy zone/place and now for at least 4 years, others will need it. 

So, to acknowledge those who recently left their happy places and those just entering theirs, I would like to post a shot of one of my happy places...  Hawaii!!  This is from the Napali Coast of Kauai and the formation seen here is known as the Cathedrals.  I took this while on a helicopter tour of the island that Eileen and I took with Jack Harter Helicopter Tours.  We flew in a helicopter like the one in the old TV show Magnum P.I.  It has no doors and I think part of me hung just a tad outside of the copter the whole tour.  So much so that when we flew through a little rain, my arm got wet.  However, it would dry off very quickly as we flew out of it.  We highly recommend it if you decide to do that on Kauai!
