Spring can be a wondrous time to photograph the outdoors. Birds are active, flowers are popping, and the weather changes from day to day. There's often a gap between those snow-covered winter days and the really vibrant spring climate where not much is really happening photographically. But this year the deep winter weather has mostly been absent and spring has arrived with a bang. If you've been reluctant to dust off your camera you have no excuse now.
It often doesn't take much effort to capture unique images. For example the fog we've had the past few days makes it relatively easy to capture those moody, dreamy photos. The photo I've posted here was taken right near Council Rock High School South this past weekend. It was taken with a "normal" digital SLR and lens - no special telephoto lenses or filters. It's the kind of photo that just about anyone could take.
By the way, this is my first blog entry on Patch, and I'll be following up with regular tips and observations from the world of photography, with a local twist. Also, if you have any specific questions you want me to address just post them in the comments, or contact me via my website: www.shadesofgreenphoto.com
