31. Early Morning Sunrise

20061231.jpg

This is the last image of 2006 and also, my 700th image. Believe it or not, this is pretty much a straight shot. Spectacular sunrise this morning, one which we were not expecting. I'll have another shot for you tomorrow, along with some stats on the site for the year.

Happy New Year!

21. Decay #10

20061221.jpg

So, I think that I have posted all that I can of this decayed, abanonded farm house. That is not to say I won't shoot there again, there are many more photographs to capture. I will just take a break from posting them.

17. Decay #6

20061217.jpg

John and I revisted the abandoned house I featured not too long ago. The light was quit flat but still had an opportunity to grab some shots I didn't take last time.

This one bothers me a little, I feel the vertical board on the right should be on the left. I could rotate the image, but then the lighting would be wrong.

14. Trees

20061214.jpg

When I saw this on the weekend, I pictured something much more graphic. Regardless, the idea is stil there. Barren trees against a barren sky.

On a side note: I have completed a review for the ExpoDisc White Balance Filter by ExpoImaging. The review may be read at: http://potd.chrisempey.com/tips/archives/2006/12/expodisc_white_1.php. This is a must have tool for anyone who relies on accurate colour without the need for a lot of post processing to achieve it.

This doesn't really show any signs of decay though it was on the same property as the previous four shots.

This is hardly a December photograph, but I did shoot it just less than one week ago. The weather has been crazy.
