Florida with a new look

March 26, 2010

I love the way the setting sun lit up this jellyfish from the edge and made it appear to have a glow about it.

I love this composition as a vertical image.  The shallow depth of filed kind of keeps you right there in the center of the image.

Aaron was in “stealth mode” as he crept up on the gulls.  Another lesson in lens selection and shutter speed.  He switched to the 70-200 Canon 2.8 lens right after this. (which is what I took this picture of him with)  He is my caddie carrying the Kata backpack that I LOVE!

This is one of my favorite images from the days shooting.  I love the back lit orange glow around the base.

A “self portrait”, that’s me on the right.  :)

Note how the late afternoon sun adds a beautiful warm tone, don’t you just love it?

An evening shot of Aaron’s 1988 Toyota minivan.  Back then they didn’t even have model names, it was just a minivan.  Doesn’t that seem funny when today so much effort is put into creating an “identity” for a line within a company?  This just kind of says it all…it is a minivan.  Aaron has dubbed this vehicle with a great name, “The Future.”

My visit to Aaron’s new home in Florida was overdue.  Because of the “busy-ness” of life, it just hadn’t happened.  So finally I just planned it and took the plunge. What an awesome time we had.  For the first time in years we had no plans other than when I landed and when I headed home, everything in between was totally open.   I think I could get used to a life that wasn’t scheduled 24/7 weeks or even months in advance.  These shots don’t tell the whole story, but it was  so much fun.  We drank great coffee, had some good meals and logged quite a few miles in “The Future” over three days.  I can’t wait to go back and do this again!
