About This Blog

I began this blog in 2011 in an attempt to improve my photography and showcase all of California's 58 counties. I didn't quite make all of the 58, I missed three and I will try to rectify that in the coming year. I'm not sure how much I improved my photography because I always seemed to be in a rush.
In 2012 I plan to take more time, perhaps not post every day (this is one thing I did accomplish in 2011). I also plan to expand beyond California and include images from other parts of Western United States. I will continue to include a map showing where I was when I took the picture. I will keep commentary to a minimum, long photo essays will continue to be at Martha's Musings.

Beautiful! What kind of filter did you use to make the sun come out like this?

Martha Z said...

No filter, the trick to this effect is a wide angle lens and a small aperture. I used a 15mm lens and f22.

Thanks, Martha, for the info. I'd love to have a lens like that but it's not on my shopping list - yet.

really nice Martha! I remember when I took my first photo for a camera class in school. The instructor told me to NEVER take a photo of the sun. I asked him why (because I liked the photo I took). He said "It's one of the basic rules of photography" and don't break the rule again in this class. I told him that was stupid and I never went back...
