Description

FOR THE LAST SEVERAL WEEKS MY WIFE AND I HAVE BEEN HIKING THE BACK TRAILS OF LAKE CALAVERAS WITH OUR DOGS. THIS IS A BEAUTIFUL AREA THATS NEAR OUR HOUSE, THE LAST FEW WEEKS I WENT WITHOUT MY GEAR TO PAY ATTENTION TO THE AREAS THAT APPEALED TO ME AND FIGURE OUT WHERE I WANTED TO SHOOT. I FINALLY WENT BACK OUT ALONE A COUPLE OF DAYS AGO AND SPENT THE WHOLE AFTERNOON OUT THERE. THERE ARE HUGE FIELDS OF THESE YELLOW WILDFLOWERS. THIS WAS THE PERFECT CONTRAST WITH THE GREEN OF THE PLANTS, THE YELLOW OF THE FLOWERS AND THE BLUE OF THE SKY. THE MOON WAS CLOSE TO FULL SO I SET MY CAMERA UP FOR A DOUBLE EXPOSURE AND SHOT THE FIELD WITH A WIDE ANGLE LENS AND THE MOON AS A SECOND SHOT WITH A 70-200MM. IT TOOK A FEW TRIES TO GET THE RIGHT BALANCE AND TO GET THE SIZE OF THE MOON AND THE POSITION RIGHT BUT I WAS HAPPY WITH THE FINAL IMAGE. IT WAS A LOT OF FUN TO EXPLORE IN BEAUTIFUL LIGHT AND TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE SPRING TIME BEAUTY.
