Saturday Snapshots - May 12

Saturday Snapshots is the most fun non-book-related meme that I've found to date. This photography themed piece of fun (I look forward to it, sometimes planning out the photo I'm going to use days in advance) is hosted each week by Alyce of At Home With Books.

The idea is to post a photo that you or a family member/friend has taken. Only two caveats: 1. that it is taken by you or someone you know, and 2. that it be suitable for all-ages viewing.

This week I've been digging into the archives again, despite the great weather. I just didn't get a lot of photos, and the ones I did take are all still on the memory card.

Anyway, this photo is from one of my camping trips last year. We went down to the dock just around sunset one evening, and this was the result. At the time, I was quite happy with it. Now though, I'm noticing a few flaws. Although, I still really like the lighting of the shot. Maybe I'll be able to get a better version this year.

That's a great photo. Very peaceful.

So restful ... just the idea of sitting on the dock at sunset looking out over the lake is restful. Great snapshot!

Such a serene setting. We just went camping over Easter but I am ready to go again very soon.

Every artist is their own worst critic...looks beautiful!

Alyce said...

I like the lighting too, and the reflection off of the water!

Eva @View from the Hillside said...

Love the lighting of the sky and sea. But it's tilted a bit, isn't it? I guess that's one of the flaws you mentioned. And there's something dark in the bottom right corner. Still, those two aren't that hard to fix :-)

Thanks everyone. That peace is one of the great things about camping, and that's one of my favourite places to go.

Those are the flaws I mentioned, Eva.

I like the peaceful blue tones and the reflection on the water.

I think that's a lovely shot. I'd love to see that same area in the daytime. *Almost* makes me want to camp. :)

Here's my Saturday Snapshot for this week.

I've always been partial to blues too, Leslie.

Thanks Catriona.

Camping is a lot of fun, Bookzilla. I do have photos from there during the day too. Might have been the same trip, but one day we were lucky enough to catch a rainbow across the lake.

The lighting is deep and mysterious and the boundaries on either side are nice too. Here's Mine

Thanks Paulita.

Love the cloud shot!!

Here is my Saturday Snapshot post!

Bev Hankins said...

I love the way the lighting gives depth to the shot. And the light focuses the attention on the blue sky and clouds in the background.

Here's my Snapshot.

Thanks Irene, Gautami, and Bev. I'm glad you like my photo.
