Nordic Nights - Southern Iceland
from www.DaveMorrowPhotography.com

Post processing this shot lasted over at least a month. Thinking it was complete I would return a few days later and realize that results were not there yet. Eventually I was thinking about throwing the file out and starting over. Thankfully one last try, and finally, success ( well at least in my eyes ).

None the less, we were out driving for 4 hours during this sunset, and I can hands down say it was the best I have ever seen. Thankfully there are 40 pictures on the computer from this 4 hour span and only 3 have been processed. This is the first to make it online, so hopefully you like it:)

Full details and some cool music apps I like on the latest blog post:

Even on the "OFF Days"

I was a bit out of it today. Even though I got up at 4:30am to go do pictures I felt lazy most of the day. I distracted myself on the phone a ton, sat in the car a bunch reading stuff and just mostly felt a bit sluggish and unmotivated. 
I barely covered any ground... like 1 town in the morning and then a 20 mile drive over the course of 6hrs (including a nao) until I got into historic Salem area in North Carolina.

Finally at around sunset I was feeling a little anxious because I wanted something great to show for the day.

I was in a historic area that was very pleasant BUT I made a last minute decision to go to a church that I'd passed a mile away.

I kept on going back and forth about where I should be. Even as the sunset colors started to appear in the skies I still hadn't acted.

But I knew I wasn't going to be complacent where I was so I rushed to the car and made the short drive back to this other church.

Yep... I felt much better after that. I mean not as good as other days. But I do feel better now seeing that I have a few solid shots, I thrive on being productive. (can't say if that's good or bad... it is what it is... good thing I'm usually productive)

HIDDEN MESSAGE
I think the hidden message in this for photographers is that one good talent is to be able to push the emotions to the side sometimes and just perform. Just do what you know how to do and make it happen. 

When I got there and I was taking pictures I wasn't thinking about lazy or wasted days, I was just... Photographing... problem solving light and angles. It's refreshing.

The Cats Curiosity

I almost forgot today is #caturday  and I never normally miss posting for this so here is one of a session of images from the jaguar enclosure at +Chester Zoo. I have no idea what he kept looking up at I can only guess it might have been a bird :)

This gorgeous time-lapse of Joshua Tree National Park seeks to chronicle these beautiful trees before climate change threatens to reduce or shift their population out of the park entirely.

Never the Same Again

Digging from the archives -- back in 2011, I went on my first photography trip, alone, to Yellowstone and the Tetons. This isn't the best photo I've ever taken...it's mega flawed technically, but I was learning and it will always be one of my favourites because of the time it was taken. It's still hanging on my wall and probably always will. I remember how lucky I thought I was to have driven down a random dirt road and find this at the end. I went back to this same spot in September of this year and the boat wasn't there. This is why I love photography. Two moments in the same place are never the same. 

This is edited with VSCO film. Liking the effects of these filters so far.

Floral Friday

Around these parts, friday is often also known as #floralfriday (curated by +Tamara Pruessner), a themed day in which people upload photos to fit the theme of the day, and a common trends seems to be that the first letter of the theme has to match the first letter of the day, hence #floralfriday, #macromonday and so forth.

Since the sun had already set here and I've been itching to play with my flashes for a while anyway, I figured I'd get two birds with one stone and play with lighting these orchids a bit.

Hope you the shot and if you're wondering how I took this shot, here's the making-off:

Happy friday everyone!
