Photograph info: This photograph was taken Saturday afternoon on a two-mile hike during a heavy snowfall. I could only detect basic shapes through my fogged viewfinder but somehow managed a couple of interesting shots. In retrospect it seems like a worthwhile compositional exercise and I may use it during some classes I'm teaching this spring. :)
Camera settings and post-processing: Shot with the Canon EOS 5D and the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L lens at 24mm, ISO 400, f/3.2, 1/1000s. Curves adjustment for contrast.
Thank you for visiting Durham Township!
reminds me of frosted mini wheats! i love all of your photographs. they are the best!
Looks like so much fun. Wonderful.
This really takes me back! Great timing! I like the mid-jump capture!
This is an incredibly fun photo. Such a great moment.
So I take it that the cows in your part of the country eat round meals. The cows out here, you know, eat square ones... heh heh heh
Good balance. You have captured the moment very well.
like powdered sugar everywhere
deadening every sound
now guarding giant sticky buns
a watchman makes his rounds
leaping high and silently
with not a moment wasted
keep them safe keep them well
for soon they will be tasted
Thanks for sharing the treats! (And a great job by the stunt crew!)
You captured a great moment! LOVE IT :-)
Bardzo interesujące. Excellent!!!
10 comments already and no one has pointed out that he looks exactly like Mega Man??
Maybe I played too much Nintendo growing up...
From bale to bale he's jumping and crossing
Leaving his fooprints in the white snowy frosting.
Fleeting moments like these
Are often difficult to seize
It's just the perfect winter's day embossing.
Is this the mark II or the old 5D?
Good moment captured, I like the situation of children all over the place and snowy. The light very ok, it is not easy in these conditions.
Lovely composition! Nice action captured here!
Will your class be local, and if so, what level?
These ...big rolls (he he! I'm sorry I don't how these things are called :-) add a nice touch of color. And..yeah, very interesting composition. I also love the movement brought by the kid, especially in the middle of that frozen landscape.
My more sincere enhorabuena by the prize and your gorgeous blog. I connect you for seguirte.
i like it. i wish it would snow here.
You make a great scene! Excellent composition.
What a great picture. It really makes me smile every time I look at it. Great shot!
this is wonderful, Kathleen. :)
Looks like a ton of fun! Wonderful energy in this image!!!
Darla: It's funny, I told my son the hay bales looked like frosted mini wheats, too, haha.
Gator: Quit ripping off Jack's material! I had him in mind when I shot this, ya know...
david tinnon & JPH: You guys are too much! How do you come up with these so fast?
Anthony DiSante: After looking up pictures of Mega Man, I concur!
Charles: Old 5D. Don't have the nerve to take the new one into a storm yet. :)
Lynette: The classes I'm teaching this spring are for specific schools and groups in different areas, and unfortunately not open to the public.
I'm considering holding local classes during the summer & fall of 2009 -- if you (or anyone else) are interested, please send an email -- info @ durhamtownship.com.
This is a fantastic, fun image. Congrats!
Kathleen, One simply opens one's self to the vibrational energy of the newly posted image, allowing it to enter the eye, flow uninterrupted through the sensory system to the visual download folder in the brain where--if unhampered--it will decompress, open, and self-transform into an Autonomic Activation Sequence file (Known to PC geeks as an "A__" file.) Next,the brain's internal "web-crawlers" sense the newly transformed "A..." file format, and promptly spool the autonomic action sequence data to the typing fingers drive, and viola, a comment is generated!
So in a special/weird way, your images use other people's brains to write their own comments. Comment variations are caused by prior brain formatting variables that are completely explained in an article I did for the NYT. They published it as a collectors edition set of matchbook covers as a promotional gimmick to build circulation among smokers. (If I remember correctly.)
......oh yeah, there's also bourbon and Coke, which appears to produce almost the same...... well, almost the same results.
Hope this clears up the "How-we-do-it" poetry question, JPH
1. Greeting Card: We all follow different paths; some easier, some harder than others.
2. Silly: News Flash! Boy caught in giant Swiss Roll icing storm!
3. Life Lesson: Blind leaps of faith are sometimes necessary to carry us forward.
Willow, I can't decide! 3 is good, but so is one, then.........
this photo is like a painting. very delightful
