and other redundant, unnecessary, and boring information. (oh boy, don't you wanna just dig right into the post? don't answer, at least let me live in blissful ignorance!)
i was shooting away and had already had a decent photo day. i mean, photo things progressed well but i felt compelled to stop by some dry bush along the yakima river. it was/is winter, some snow, and very, very cold. i'd spend 5-10 min figuring out a frame and then would walk away briskly to warm up. so again, i stopped by this bush and decided to try to think harder, photographically. so as i was filling up the memory card with mbs of junk one of these snuck in. i tried different apertures but my default (f/3.5) for this lens worked "best" as to bring out the glitter rubbing off the aperture blades.
and at a different location/day knowing what i described above, i captured the photo below. however, here, instead of shooting in a sun reflection, i framed in the sun.
i don't see how else can you frame the sun. unless you call it a friend first.
note the location of the signature watermark. supremely awesome and rad! i am winning!
