I suppose I’m cheating a little bit, since this was actually taken on Monday February 16, 2015 at Ferry Beach Park in Rock Hall, Maryland. A shot looking out on the Chesapeake Bay. Similar to one of my favorite shots of 2014 which showed Ice on the same rocks.
It was around 9:30 in the morning and the temperature was still in the teens. I had driven around 14 miles from home with plans to get a few shots of the bay from Rock Hall. My truck had a bit of trouble starting. When I hopped into it to go to my next location, the battery failed to start the truck. Fortunately I have friends in the area and was able to get a jump.
Needless to say I decided to cancel the rest of my plans and headed back home.
When the February’s Moon was seen during the days leading up to the Full Moon and the days afterward, it was a wondrous sight. Fortunately during the early morning hours of the Full Moon I was able to get this shot.
I have seen a number of discussion asking which is a better camera, Nikon or Canon. This question in reality is similar to which computer is better a Mac or PC.
I have answered by saying, “Canon folks will lead you to Canon, Nikon folks to Nikon. Two factors I have discovered, the glass is more important than the camera and the most important is to learn your camera.”
There are a lot of factors involved in choosing a camera. Which is right for you only depends on you.
I’m the odd man out since I shoot Pentax. I also use a Mac as my computer
There’s really nothing special about this photo, other than it was taken during a special event. The Kent County Chamber of Commerce Annual Business Awards Gala. The photo is a wide view of the stage, with the President and Executive Director of the Chamber, The Awards, and Chamber Sponsors.
I believe that being a member of the Chamber of Commerce and assisting them in their mission is one of the important things I can do as a business owner. I have been a member for over 10 years and was happy and proud that they asked me to photograph their annual event.
