Re: Visual Bulimia? A Bloated Surfeit of Images?

PHeymont ·
Sheer volume has become a digital-age issue not only for images. The constant flow of e-mail (more spam than real, often); tweets about celebrities' teeth, clothes and turmoil; TV and radio repetitions as well as Konstant Kardashians are serious forms of mind pollution. Sometimes it takes an extended series of images to create a picture, an insight. But too many will mask, not highlight, the point. That's why I enjoy well-curated exhibits of the work of thoughtful (not merely skillful)...

Today's clue will be the biggest clue before Monday's reveal, but it's not a photo. It's a little history. It's not the kind of history you might expect, though. What makes this lighthouse so famous is that it was involved in some aviation history. The pilots did not succeed in what they wanted to do, but they were still viewed as heroes worldwide. And what the pilots were able to accomplish was quite an achievement. Their accomplishment still has an impact on many flights today. So history...

The vegetation looks like something from the far north. Perhaps from your trip to Norway? Maybe even eastern Canada. I'm not sure.

Re: Top 7 Travel Photography tips for Epic Photos

These are great tips. i would add one more - make up business cards. They can say blogger or photographer, but they help when approaching people you want to photograph. It also gives you a way to offer to send a copy of your photo to your subject.

Re: Top 7 Travel Photography tips for Epic Photos

Couple more hints. Write down where you are taking the photos or learn how to save GPS / Geotags to your photos. This is handy when time passes and you are trying to remember where you took the photo. Biggest tip is to have a powerful telescopic lens to get far away closeups. If you don't have a tripod, brace yourself on a sturdy object for those big zoom shots, otherwise they maybe blurry.

Looks like a good idea for a cold winters day. A gallop in the snow. Just hope there's no frozen ponds underneath. Great scenery you have - enjoy it while it lasts !
Comment

Re: Feb. 6, 2016: Dashing through the Snow

DrFumblefinger ·
Thanks for the note, Garry! They do love a run in the snow, and no ponds underneath to worry about -- just the rare gopher hole which is just as bad! Scenery should last. Properties around us are all privately and people want to keep their trees.
