Day 221…Footbridge to the sunset…

Welcome to day 221 of  365 photos…I came upon this footbridge over the White Oak River just as the sun was going down. I loved the look of the Spanish moss in the trees, the bubbling water, and the footbridge seemingly making a path to the sunset. The lighting was really different here. Even though the sun was going down, the light was coming through to lighten different spots of the trees.Day 221 - 365 Project - FootbridgeCamera: Nikon D7100 – Lens: Tokina 12-28mm

As we came back onto the road, the sunset was pretty spectacular. There wasn’t a good place to take the photo so we just pulled over and I took the photo even though the scenery wasn’t good. It was just too pretty not to share. I could have cropped the bottom off but I wanted to show the entire sky are so I decided to leave the photo as-is.Sunset after footbridge

Settings are added to the photos so that I can remember what I’ve used and can see if any future photos done with other settings turn out better or worse.

Day 220…Old Fish Camp

Welcome to day 220 of  365 photos…this old fish camp/cottage is located on Front St. in Beaufort, NC. I took the photo yesterday. Our granddaughter is leaving tomorrow so we spent time together today and then it stormed like crazy this afternoon and evening so I didn’t get a new photo today.

I don’t know the background of this building but I absolutely LOVE the looks of it. I check it out every time that we go to Beaufort and I have taken photos almost every time that I go there. Yesterday, I went right down near the water to get photos and I also took some from various angles. I know that it is old and probably pretty dilapidated and there may even be bats inside but I love what I can see of it. It is the quintessential fish camp that I have read about over the years.Fish HouseCamera: Nikon D7100 – Lens: Nikon 18-300mm

Front Porch

Lots of “stuff” on the porch to add character

Since it was storming this evening, I played around with Nik software from Google for post-processing these photos. I normally use Lightroom 5 and/or OnOne Photo Suite but decided to see what I thought about Nik since many members of my photo club use it.  I kind of like how it came out.

Day 219…The Old Apothecary Shop

Welcome to day 219 of  365 photos…this historic building is the Old Apothecary Shop. It is located in Beaufort, NC and was built in 1859, serving as a doctors office. Doctors in those days, did everything. From Beaufort, NC History blog:  “As in these early times, Drs. Cramer, Davis and Davis were surgeons, eye doctors, dentists, psychologists, and general practitioners. They diagnosed patients, prescribed medicine and then filled their own prescriptions in the front part of the shop. The restored Apothecary looks very much as it did when Dr. George Davis was practicing there, filled with medicinal bottles, instruments and flasks—and even an organ“.  Read more about the Apothecary Shop  HERE.Day 219 - 365 Project - The Old ApothecaryCamera: Nikon D7100 – Lens: Tokina 12-28mm

Day 218…Tree Frogs

Welcome to day 218 of  365 photos…Tree frogs have taken over my Lantana. The other day our granddaughter, Kendra, noticed that there were numerous little frogs in the Lantana. They don’t seem to be on any of the other plants. After a bit of research, we have discovered that they are tree frogs. What we can’t figure out is exactly what species of tree frogs that they are. Seems like there are about fifteen different species of tree frogs here in NC. Many articles mentioned Green Tree Frogs are common in coastal NC but these seem to be smaller and have some other coloration. Perhaps they are not fully grown.  Do you know what kind these are??Day 218 - 365 Project - Tree FrogsCamera: Nikon D7100 – Lens: Nikon 18-300mm
