How can we take advantage of EVERY moment that we have?
Well., I have started a new segment of my photography called "on the road". In this segment I will be capturing images on my drive to and from the daily grind. Being a Ramona Photographer provides me with LOTS of opportunities to capture some amazing sites.
Ready to see the first post of the segment?
The 2 images below were captured on the drive to work right off of Highland Valley Rd.
Most mornings in Ramona you can be sure there will be plenty of fog located in the south west end of Ramona around Dos Picos Park and Ramona Grasslands Preserve.
First Picture - Rain Catcher
In the first shot I initially wanted to capture a flock of crows sitting on a dead tree, only to find that when I grabbed the camera out of the bag they had all flew off. Began to walk back to the car and I noticed this cobweb on the fence acting as a rain catcher, it was truly a beautiful yet slightly eerie sight. The sun in the backdrop was just barely piercing through the fog to provide some amazing back lighting. Overall I am really happy with the results.
My favorite of the two IS...
Well pretty easy to guess as there is only 2 and I used My favorite of the two is as the header for this. You guessed it the one on the right or "Not Forgotten" is just splendid. I found this old I assume cattle shoot (couldn't confirm it) that was in shambles. The sun was blasting through the fog and illuminating only a portion of the valley. I put my lens right up to the barbed wire fence to add the barb into the shot and snapped away.
I hope you enjoyed the first 2 shots of this segment. This is going to be a mini series that I continue to do overtime. Being a Ramona Photographer I think this series is a great way to get myself out earlier, take some great shots to add to the collection. Hopefully I will inspire others out there and provide some creative insight. If you enjoy the shots below be sure to like, follow, sub, share, comment and all the other fun stuff you can do on social media.
I will also be (soon) beginning a "how I made it" segment coming to our YouTube channel in which I will demonstrate how i captured images like the ones below and edit them in post processing so make sure you sub up our YouTube channel so you can be apart of it!
Till next time!
