Vocabulary Travels

” . . . is the word”

I usually only pick one of Paula’s great words but I was inspired to do four because I haven’t been posting much recently.

Moods for the Misbegotten

Sunset With Trees

When I was in Alaska recently, I decided to try panning blur landscape shots, with  little success. I think my shutter speed was too fast. This is the only shot I really liked. The sun was low on the horizon behind a grove of birch and fir trees. The first image is out of the camera, with some cropping, and gives a sense of the actual lighting. The second version of the image is colder, the third is warmer. Do you have a preference?

Prairie Moonrise at Sunset

Dusk fell soon after the train departed Chicago. The gray skies cleared as the moon rose. Amazing what a smart phone can do through a dirty train window in low light. With a little help from Snapseed

Gouverneur Kemble Warren (1830 –1882), a civil engineer and Union Army general during the American Civil War, is remembered for the July 2, 1863 defense of Little Round Top during the Battle of Gettysburg.  A bronze statue of Warren by Karl Gerhardt (1853–1940) overlooks the battlefield from Little Round Top in Gettysburg National Military Park. It was dedicated in 1888.
