Photo 101 – Water & Orientation

Today’s Photo Assignment was to take a picture of water that tell’s a story.  First, in horizontal mode:

1-DSCN5629

And then, in vertical mode:

2-DSCN5630We spent many hours with our daughters feeding the ducks and geese years ago here at Vasona Park along Los Gatos Creek.  Of course, now, we know that it wasn’t really that great for the health of the water fowl to get used “fast food.”  Here you can see some Canadian Geese enjoying the late afternoon on Los Gatos Creek.

I think that I like the vertical shot better.  I like how I’ve framed the rocks along the bank, the reflections in the water and how the late afternoon light casts a glow on the whole scene.  I don’t like how the light sky blew out the top of the horizontal shot.  What do you think?

These shots were taken with my Nikon Coolpix 4600.

As always, if you’re looking for me, I’m over the hill.

  1. Definitely like the vertical better; the colors are vibrant and I agree with the nice framing by the rocks. Love seeing your pictures and reading about your hiking, and photography adventures!
