Garden Landscape Travel

Sunday September 19, 2010

LONDON, ENGLAND – I had a chance to take a walk in Hyde Park before leaving for the airport for the flight home. This specimen tree was photographed at about 8:30 local time, an hour and a half past sunrise. The image is stitched from 15 separate frames, all shot with my Leica M9 and the same 30-year-old lens referred to in yesterday’s post. I’ve included a 1:1 crop to give an idea of the detail that can be captured with this technique. Stitching was done in Photoshop.

WARREN, CONNECTICUT – Another gray, rainy day.  But at the end of the day something amazing happened.  Just as the sun set it briefly broke through the clouds.  It was as if the landscape had been bathed in a red spotlight – one of those “It’s remarkable to be alive” moments.

WARREN, CONNECTICUT – At last a crisp, clear late fall day.  This is the sort of day that gives seasonal weather changes a good reputation.  After struggling against against murky light for most of the week.  I spent the afternoon in Litchfield having lunch and photographing the town.  Tomorrow is supposed to be clear so I’ll come back for sunrise.  Today’s posting is from a walk in the woods a little latter in the day.
