The Topic is true. I am by no means a photographer. I have no nice camera. And I do not go out of my way to take pictures of nature or anything. But sometimes Iâm just in that picture taking mood. It comes up on occasion and Iâll take some artsy shots of my yard or something. You guys can enjoy them and feel free to give me tips and or criticism.

This is a picture I took at about 7:00 A.M. a few days ago. I had just woken up and was home alone, bored, and sick with mono. I noticed the tide was pretty high so the small creek in my back yard was actually full. Another reason I found this so interesting was the way the wind was blowing and making the water ripple, I have always found that beautiful. So I grabbed my camera and snapped a few photos. This is the best one I took.

Again, sick with mono I could run. This killed me due to my love of running. I was going through withdraws and that inspired me to start taking pictures of my track spikes. I find them beautiful⦠but I enjoy running like only runners do.

This picture actually really angers me. There was an awesome sunset and the clouds were just right. So it put me into that âpicture taking moodâ and I went down to the water to start a photo shoot. I just hate how the people down the water from me have put up those ugly boat lifts and docks. They really take away from the shot.

BTW I kinda cheated with the last picture because I used the sunset mode which would make a picture of a lamp a beautiful sunset⦠but oh well itâs still a good picture.

wow these are some amazing photos!!! I hope to possibly see more?? The first picture is very nice but I find the red flag in the middle a bit distracting. Your lighting is perfect and I agree that the rippling is beautiful. So other than the flag, brilliant picture.
The second wasn't as good as the first one but I like the fact that you took it in black and white.
I would have to disagree with you about the boat lifts/docks in the third photo. I understand that you were trying to get a nice sunset pic but I believe that the docks add a story to the picture and I actually liked them

Keep up the good work!!! I can't wait to see more!!!!

Well, the scenery around your area is amazing, people should take advantage of that whenever they can.

The only constructive critisism I have is, on the third picture, the effect on the cloud just seems a bit . . . unnatural. Just covers too much cloud.
Otherwise, the photographs are great.

The isnpiration only mono can fuel.

Another Photo?!?

This is a picture I took at Great Falls Park in Fairfax, Virginia. The park is only a 30 minute drive from my grandparentâs house so we visit the park every once and a while as a family. Luckily I brought my camera last time I went there.

Hopefully tomorrow ill go out on my kayak and take some photos on the water. It depends on the weather.

I wish we had scenery like that around where I live. It's so pretty I swear it looks like you're taking your pics with a professional camera. Hopefully the weather is good so you can take some more Can't wait to see more

Funny, I live in Virginia.

We get scenery like this all of the time. Except there aren't as many rocks. Or water.
Just trees.

Yet it is amazing. The slightly single toned colors contrasts well with the flowing water.

I really wish i could give you guys a sound to this image. the most amazing part of the Great Falls is just how loud it is. The power behind that water is mind-blowing.
