It was almost too windy to go on a hunt for flowers. I had my doubts I would be able to capture good images while the flowers swayed back and forth. I wasn’t particularly excited by the thought of staying inside another day. After the snow we received on Saturday, I wanted to get out and see some color. I didn’t care if I came home empty handed, at least I would get outside.
I started at my favorite location to find the little wildflowers I typically photograph, the Wright Settlement Cemetery. I have been waiting for the grape hyacinth, and the small white, purple and pink little flowers to take hold in the grass. The first to bloom are the daffodils and then a few weeks later I can capture the little ones fighting with the grass. The snow did not frighten them away…
After capturing my images at the cemetery I drove through the city looking for other possibilities. I spotted the tulips along the meridian on Black River Boulevard. I will need to come back when the wind is not as strong, those tall blossoms definitely were dancing to much. I Also spotted some flowering shrubs at Franklyn’s Field. Another possible destination. It appeared as if the city had started planting the flowers but still had more to do. I’ll wait, the colors will be worth it…

An old article on Digital Photography School popped up in my stream the other day and it got me to do a little experimenting of my own. The article “How to Create Abstract Photos with Oil and Water and a Little Dish Soap” struck the right chord with me and Sunday morning after my normal routine was completed I dragged out the needed equipment to play.
It is not as easy as the article leads you to believe. I few wrong turns and a quick washing session for the glass plate before I started to get a few images I was happy to capture. Before I try again I need to get a few more colorful backgrounds. I also need a couple more eye-droppers in order to make placing the various liquids easier. Overall, I had fun and that was the best part…

Delta Lake State Park
My quick run out to Delta Lake on Sunday yielded three images of the sunset before the sun slipped back into the clouds. I wasn’t going to waste this opportunity and I noticed within the ice along the beach there were very interesting patterns. I switched to my macro lens and started exploring. Obviously the ice lends itself well to a monochrome treatment which was my immediate immediately thought when I started to process this image. I also prefer to use the square image format as this is nothing but an abstract image.
