    Really nice work Ray! I need to take some lessons from you. Tomorrow I am heading out to photograph shrooms. If I end up getting anything good I will post. Again, good stuff!

    Not much to it, really. Just taken which the subject in the shade, and at a place where the background is darker than the main subject. However, that's an incredibly colorful lily. I haven't seen such bright colors on a lily before. It would have been a much beautiful flower right after the rain.

    Thanks.

    I am running out of subjects around my house It's good the moose season starts soon, and if the weather cooperates by mid September, I can then switch to landscapes. The weather has been tough for landscapes this year, raining almost daily.

    Rain is your friend, for spectacular color saturation. If you get the chance just look at the volume on Color by Time / Life series on Photography, the ONE photographer that inspired me the most is Ernest Hass. He is also the one photographer that Time / Life used more than any other photographer throughout that whole series.

    Ernest Hass combines color & light in a way I have never seen any other photographer capture. He is a genius in how to compose and expose.

    Take the time and learn what his work will teach you by careful study of basic simple elements !!

    As far as landscapes are concerned, Ansel Adams spent countless, days, weeks, months in just one of our famous National Parks.

    In Alaska the one place I would love to explore for a few years is Majestic Valley. I have never seen anything in this state that has such magnificent grandeur.

    For what it is worth, there is a lot more, around your house that is present, but you just haven't seen yet. Look for the 'hidden' treasures !!

    I have been looking for the works of Ernest Haas, but haven't been able to find them at Amazon, nor at Barnes & Noble, but plan to keep on looking.

    Thanks you for the information, and the nice comments about my photos.

    Ray, the ONLY place your going to see the photos I mentioned is in the TIME / LIFE series on photography, His images are in the volume named COLOR

    If I remember correctly (1973) each photographer only had one image in that book, But Ernest Hass had 6 !!

    I guarantee you, you will learn lots by studying those images !!

    Keep posting your outstanding images !!

    I may be getting the hang of it Took this ones right after work today, and under a momentary cloud cover. Set the camera to cloudy WB, too.

    This one is the best, although I cropped it a little too tight on top.
