The Colors of Fall

Fall is upon us, and the colors are amazing.  This was just in the garden of my in-laws.  It’s amazing how the green, is becoming Yellow and red, then falling off.  I tried to take images that actually show the transition between the colors, yet also the contrast between the green, and the fall colors.  This is also an experiment using Flickr, please do let me know if the images don’t load.

Night Time visitor (little frog)

At night, we noticed that we have some visitors.  Frogs on the steps, but we couldn’t imagine how they got there.   While I know they can jump, I thought that each step is just too hight.  Yesterday, using the flash, I was able to take pictures of our night Visitor.  I was hoping it won’t get scared, but the flash didn’t disturb it, or the fact that I was going up and down the stairs next to it.

Misty Saturday Morning

The weather is yet again doing its thing.  High temperature, to low drops makes the nights/early morning pretty mysterious with fog, and mist on the plants.  While it wasn’t that early in the morning, the leafs were still wet with drops from the mist, so I took the chance, and took a few pictures.

Tiger

Eye of the Tiger

Even though those images were taken more than a month ago, when we went to the Zoo with the family, I only got to process them today, and so decided to post them.

As the title suggests, this is an image of a sleeping tiger.  I couldn’t get a better image of it, as the tiger didn’t want to wake up.

Duck looking at me

Now at first I thought this was a joke, or a stature.  Turns out it’s a living bird, looked like an alien to me with its funky knees

Weird Bird

Another nice looking duck :)

Turtles

I love hawks, and such birds, but I never had enough luck (and patience) to take pictures of them in the wild, will need to go to a bird watch tour, or such in the Hortobagy (Hungarian plains) one day I’ll get there.

And then a link to the rest of the gallery, hope you enjoy them here

Why I’m not posting that often

To tell you the truth I feel guilty for not taking more pictures, and sharing here, but my life changed drastically and beautifully on the 6th of March when my daughter was born :) I’ve been sharing mostly nature pictures on this blog. To be honest I’ve been taking pictures of the family more lately. But I’ll try to get back as my time permits. This is the gorgeous little girl Zoe. :)

Adventure into HDR

I tried creating a few HDR (High Dynamic Range) images, just for fun.  I feel I still have a few things to learn as there are so many algorithms for this.  I used all Open-source and free software, downloaded via digiKam, and processed the photo’s using Luminance HDR.  Not too hard since I use Linux as my main OS.  I think the images turned out pretty nice.  I did this series with my Canon DSLR,  RAW images.

The rest are HDR, I was too lazy to keep track of the originals.
