What Lies Beneath

We are often wowed by the finished product that we forget about what lies beneath.

It never ceases to amaze me how FAST these guys can erect a buildling. I mean, you blink and it's there!

Thanks for your visit to my SkyWatch Friday post, Dr. Em Dy.

I'm on the road and in the field doing another photo trip chasing the bloom of our Rosebay Rhododendron (white blossoms) in the northern area of the Southern Appalachian mountains, and with lodging that does not have the most reliable internet service. I won't be home again for a few more days yet, but I did finally develop and upload a few images to update my July 7 Rhododendron post.

Sunrise this morning was a washout, literally, with locally heavy thunderstorms--looks like the rain won't ease up until later morning. Back from breakfast, so I wanted to try and get around to all who visited my SWF, and others too while I still have good internet access. So, please forgive this cut & paste with a small bit of personalization added--I do appreciate your visit and your comments.

So, you're new to photography, Dr.?
You're off to a good start from what I've seen in your blogs. Landscape photography is all about light--more so than other genres. It's also about seeing and learning to see photographically because the camera does not see reality as we do, and film/sensor are capable of recording a broader range of the color spectrum.

Keep practicing you ability to see as you have done here, with the contrasts between the old and the new, the established and the yet to be finished. And, start practicing your ability to see light in all its forms (I started by really looking in the shadows). BTW, the last photo on my SWF post is an example of this.

If you have any questions, send me an email.

Karen, I agree. It does seem like they work round the clock!

Jim, thanks for the tips and the encouragement!
