No Swimming or Wading

Delta Lake State Park

The first proper sunset of winter. I was being very lazy Sunday afternoon. Sitting on the couch reading while my cat Oliver was staring me down trying to convince me it was time for dinner. The sky caught my eye out the front window and I realized I had a good chance for a nice sunset. There was less than an hour before the sun would drop below the horizon but plenty of time for me to make it to my stand by location, Delta Lake State Park. Poor Oliver would have to wait until I got back…

Seven Seas Lagoon, Walt Disney World

On my Magic Kingdom day I headed over to the Wilderness Lodge to join a meet-up for a photo walk of the holiday decorations at the Magic Kingdom Resorts. When you are already at the Magic Kingdom, your quickest option for getting to the Wilderness Lodge is one of the boats sailing the Seven Seas Lagoon. I always love the views you get from being on the water, especially when the sun and sky combine to create some drama.

World Showcase, Epcot, Walt Disney World

Although it might not be the ideal scene, you have to stop and capture the colors. Walking around World Showcase when the sky lit up at sunset. No time to reposition yourself, you grab the view you have.

Big Beach View

Delta Lake State Park

I wish I could blame the Mother Nature for my lack of photography lately. Although she has contributed with this constant drizzle I have been a little busy (or is the four letter word lazy). Either way, it felt good to venture out last night with the camera. Nothing too crazy, a quick trip up to my old stand-by, Delta Lake State Park for the sunset. Or, what might have been a sunset if a front wasn’t passing through my area.

I promise, the sun was out and shining when I left the house. The ten minute drive saw my hopes for a view of the sun disappear behind the clouds but it did present an interesting big picture view. I worked a few different scenes as the official time for the sunset approached. I was lucky. There was no wind and it created an amazingly calm lake which provided great reflections.

As I was leaving the beach area I stopped to enjoy the view one last time. I couldn’t help myself. The view was begging for a nice panoramic image. In the sand, it only took me a few minutes to level the tripod so I could rotate the head and capture my set. Seven images later I was confident I captured what I needed. Lightroom does a fantastic job merging the images into a single picture. A quick process through Luminar and I had my autumn image of Delta Lake.
