Come sit here with me awhile
come and breathe Peace
Leave your troubles behind
as we just sit here awhile

Full daylight photography has always intimidated me. Shooting only on cloudy days has its limitations as I really learned this year. We had a record breaking amount of sunny days this Summer so I missed a lot of opportunities with my camera on account of those sunny days.
I started thinking and doing some research. I went ahead and bought a filter for my lens I did not have and I pulled out another that I did have with every Intention to start shooting in the daylight. I still prefer the effect of cloudy days with my photography but if I am going to allow sun to limit my skills as a photographer, I’d say fear was playing a big role and darn it, I just won’t go there.
This photograph is one of my first attempts experimenting with my new filter. My focal point was the dip in the tree line and not the bench but if I could go back to retake this image I would have moved the frame over to the right to bring more of the focus on the bench. Live and learn, and that I am doing. I’m also now excited because I know I will be able to use this new filter in combination with the filter I already have with snow landscape photography. Oh yes, I am thinking ahead here. It pays to prepare.
Settings I used:
ISO 100, F/5.6, SS 1/160s, FL 55.0mm, WB shade, with Canon EOS 6D
