One of my earlier shots, this one isn’t the most expertly-composed, but the feeling I got after opening it up in Photoshop and physically feeling the warmth that they image conveyed, it quickly became one of my favorites.
Taken at a large lake outside of Sarasota, tall reeds and grasses grow near the shoreline.
Celery Fields is the highest natural point in Sarasota, and I can tell you it’s definitely strange to be so high in this flat state that is Florida. Taken at sunset, I felt this image translated better to what I saw in black and white.
I’ve tried a few times to capture this particular view before, and was never satisfied until I shot it on film this time. This is as close to what I saw with my own eyes as I could get.

A long exposure shot I did while waiting to work on some night sky/star shots at Turtle Beach here in Sarasota. Wonderful evening, very quiet, and mostly empty. I’d replicate this experience every single night if I could.

I’m doing a 30 Day photo challenge on Facebook (those things are great for giving your creativity a kick in the butt), and yesterday’s entry was supposed to be for something green. Although the pic I took on my iPhone wasn’t dominated by green, I was really happy with the way it turned out.
By the way guys, if you are on the fence about the iPhone 6 Plus…..go ahead and slip off on that side…I had my reservations at first but the phone and the camera are FANTASTIC. This photo was taken on my 6 Plus, with a bit of post-processing help from the Camera+ app for contrast.
