Friday-My Town- Shoot Out








The assignment for Friday's Shoot Out is, as I understand it, to capture “Power - where do you get your power? Is it electric, hydroelectric, solar, wind, natural gas? The things that power our towns or it could be things that empower you personally, or places to go to regroup, regenerate your own personal power.” I chose to focus on personal empowerment and places to regroup. In Upstate New York, regenerating means to be near water...that was my inspiration for these photos today. I hope group members enjoy what they see here as I'm sure I will enjoy viewing their sites today.

That final image is fantastic! I love the water too, and find that it re-energizes me completely!

Well beautiful images of Earth Water Sun are certainly not political and something everyone can agree on

Beautiful series. I can't decide on a favorite. Water does it for me too. The sound, the feel, the sight of it...

Jen said...

These are absolutely STUNNING shots. I love them all...just breathtaking!

Chef E said...

Seems like I could do some serious writing if I was where these shots were taken...nice post!

Seriously...The last one with the water lilies at first I thought it was sun on the water d..Did you purposely seek that illusion?

STUNNING and DAZZLING!!! Bright, vivid colors with gorgeous lighting. I love how you used the trees in framing the first shot. The last one is my favorite, though! I can almost feel the warmth of the sun. The red chair - the shirt flung over the top - the guy soaking up the sun - it tells a story that the other images don't have. Another terrific series!!!

I love the second one which shows the sunlight peeking through the sodden weeds. Very beautiful and definitely capturing the regenerative spirit!
