I am going to try to make a concerted effort to take and post more photos. I think I am guilty of thinking most things don't appear interesting enough to photograph and as such I don't take as many photos as I would like to.

Without going into detail as to what I do for work, I had the opportunity to spend a lot of time looking at this tree today. In the wrong light it looked just like a drab, bare tree ready to face the winter. When what little sun there was today, set for the evening, the drama in the clouds made this a worthy shot. As I framed the shot, I could see it in black and white and knew that was the way I wanted it to be. As I reviewed this shot, I thought to myself the only thing missing would have been a large flock of birds in the tree (preferably crows).

This shot kind of sums up how I feel about the impending season.

Bridge Over & Under Troubled Water

Haven't been shooting much lately, unfortunately. I have passed over this bridge on early still mornings too many times to count and thought this would be a good time to stop and take my first photo of the month.

This was taken with the D90 and kit lens 18-105VR
