Congratulations to Kay Rhodes for winning the Photo of the Month contest.
This photo was taken on a cold, windy evening in February 2016, just before sunset. The location was the Naples, Florida pier. The pier is a famous spot for photographs, so my goal was to take a photo that wasn’t like the many others. I love the beauty of water and structure, so this photograph combined them both. I was drawn to the sun shining though the legs of the pier, glistening off the water and the rolling waves, and the dark sky that warned of an upcoming storm. In my mind, it was a perfect combination for taking photographs.
Camera settings: Canon 5D Mark III, EF24-105mm lens, f/8.0, 1/1250 sec., ISO 200, Focal length 24mm
Congratulations to Larry Baumgardt for winning the Photo of the Month contest.
This hawk portrait was taken in March 2016 at Homosassa Springs in Florida. This particular hawk had been injured and was recovering at the Homosassa Wildlife Park, so he/she was rather used to being around people and was kind enough to pose for me.
Camera used was a Nikon D7200 with a 70-200mm f4 lens zoomed to 175mm. Exposure was for 1/125 sec. at f5.6 using an ISO of 400.
Congratulations to Melodie Rodgers for winning the Photo of the Month contest.
I shot the photo at River Preserve County Park, at around 7:30 in the morning. It had snowed the day before and of course I didn’t have my camera. I was hoping that the snow would stay on the trees, since it was the last snow of the year, thankfully it did.
Settings: Lens 24-105 @ 4mm, F8, 1/25 sec., ISO 250
