The sunset was a pastel palette. The trees have lost their leaves and are showing their bare branches. I chose to capture with intentional camera movement, creation Sunset Impressionism.
The willow trees are leafing out, and the branches are full of catkins. The wind was blowing today and the willow branches were moving and swaying. The contrast of the early leaf yellow and the blue sky was particularly beautiful. These were captured with my iPhone 7, the camera that is always with me, using the Slow Shutter App. Then Lightroom was used to add contrast and clarity.
I invite you to join us (ten fine art photographers) for a new exhibit, Subtext. The opening reception is Friday, March 3, from 6-8:30pm at the Aurora Public Art Commission, 20 East Downer Place, Aurora, IL.

Sometimes it is just fun to play. So as I recover and rest from the flu and a cold, I play on my iPad using Photo Apps. PhotoShop Express just made more filters available to Creative Cloud members, so I played a little.
Using one my Semblance abstracts, I applied the Vignette Blue filter and a few other tweaks to create something new. Just for fun. What do you think? Here is the before and after:
The exhibit at Bloomingdale Park District Museum opening reception was last night. While my image “Red Pines, Afternoon” did not receive an award, I was in good company with great photography. The museum offers two galleries and both were filled with images. The Curator did a marvelous job grouping images and hanging the show. If you are in the area in the next month, stop by and see the show.
Thank you to fellow Fleeting Moments Artists Dee Hudson and Carol Byron for coming to the show to offer support!
