This is an image from the town of Kilkenny in the south-east part of Ireland. It's one of the many beautiful towns with old castles, ruins, and colorful buildings. This particular scene, with the River Nore in the foreground, the colorful buildings in the middle ground, and Kilkenny Castle in the background, created a nice sense of dimension. The leading lines to the castle also helped make the image more interesting.
Since our Virginia Christmas turned out to be very rainy, foggy and extremely warm for December, I'm posting this foggy morning scene on the Occoquan River near the Bull Run Marina. It's a favorite spot of local hikers and one of my favorite spots to photograph, especially mornings like this.
Stepping away from infrared for a bit... Here's one of my favorite local places to visit, Leesylvania State Park on the Potomac River. It's one of those places you can visit 10 days in a row, and each day, your photos will look completely different. It could be the clouds in the sky or the color of the sunrise. It could be the number of fisherman on the pier or fog on the river. You just never know, which makes it an interesting place to photograph.
