Almost Nothing at Myakka River State Park

March 30, 2014

This past December 20 was a real bust for photographing. Unlike during other trips we’ve made there, neither Janet nor I was inspired by what we saw at the Myakka River State Park this time. I took few shots and only one is worth talking about at all. Here it is, three ways—full width, a tighter crop, and a much tighter crop. The much tighter crop is my favorite because it looks like the way I sometimes doodle. If you haven’t already discovered this for yourself: you can stop the slide show from automatically advancing by clicking on the image (or hovering your cursor over it) and then clicking on the middle circle that appears on the image. When you want to advance the slide show manually, click the circle with the arrow in it. And here’s a tip for photographers: if you want to stop moving water so that it doesn’t look blurry and so you can see the ripples, you need to shoot at least as fast as 1/80 of a second.

  1. The third shot is the best, Linda.

    • Thanks, Andy. They’re all the same shot, just different crops. Wish I’d had the long lens on the camera that day.
