We are about to head to the cottage for the long weekend or part of it. Maybe, just maybe, I’ll bring back a few photos. Dya think?
Speaking of photos, perhaps you recall this one from Celtfest in July?
Well, perhaps you don’t, but this week it was used in the Celtic Music Magazine — an email newsletter for those of us who are silly about this kind of music. 🙂 The guy who writes it asked for up to three photos from one of the summer’s Celtic music festivals, so I sent in this one along with two others. It appears in this webpage, which is identical to the email letter. The picture is about halfway down, with no description, but there is a credit. Apparently, I will receive a free CD as an honorarium of sorts. Cool.
Meanwhile, I did go back to the mill of which I posted a number or photos just about a week ago. I thought I was being clever by targetting The Golden Hour. I mean to say, isn’t it a great idea to take pictures in the best light of day. Well … wait a minute AC … what if the setting sun isn’t actually hitting the building? Uh oh. Live and learn.
The setting sun was, however, lighting the top of the old mill, giving the building some contrast. The good thing is that I remembered my tripod. The bad thing (aside from my miscalculation about golden light) was that there were some kids in the way (bottom right of first two photos). What canya do? Eh?!
So … without further ado, here they are. Ta da!Aside: this is the link to The Golden Hour Calculator. It will find your position and inform you as to this best time (often) to take pictures.
