35. Rocky Waterscapes

I recently took a trip with my husband back to some of his old stomping grounds in the Northeast. We knew some of our activities would include visiting a few light houses. What we didn’t plan for was any type of cold weather! While I took this particular photo of the Portland Head Light, I had the hat on my jacket tied tight trying to block the blowing wind from my face. I wasn’t wearing gloves, because who knew I’d need them in June!! My fingers still hurt on my right hand hours later! When I look at this photo I can still feel the wind and cold…

A-5 Reflections

I have been wanting to try this reflection technic for a very long time. Susan Karski, another 52-week blogger showed me a photo she had taken out west with a beautiful reflection awhile back. I was really surprised when she told me that the photo had been taken using just a small puddle of water. I thought it was near a LAKE! Today I finally had my opportunity. I was at a near by light house called the Nubble Light. I took the iconic shot but kept searching for how I could make it mine. I saw a couple puddles of water and thought of Sue’s puddle trick….┬áThe arrow points to the puddle of water and the creative doodle is supposed to be me laying on the ground holding my camera!

The second shot shows my finished photo.
