Taking photos at clever angles can be deceiving and can offer interesting perspective. I was standing at the bottom of a boulder when I took this photo at Eisenhower State Park. The boulder wasn’t that huge but from the photo you wouldn’t know. From this angle I was able to showcase the blue sky and clouds.
Summer is the season for thistle. (shown below). The background is a lake. Careful (or perhaps haphazard) photography skills make the background look black.
When I glanced through my photos I was disappointed. I set up my tripod, risked poison ivy, ants and spiders to get a new photo for my “Moss as Art” series. I didn’t think I had a shot. But after some careful cropping, the photo below grew on me…
