Rosey Antenna Reception

Friday, February 1st, 2013

Here’s a close-up photo I took of a black bug on a wild rose blossom.

Photography Prints

The bugs antennas made me think of the ‘Rabbit Ears’ antennas you used to see on old TVs, that’s how I came up with the title for the macro photograph.

Getting a good focus and composition of a critter like this while holding the camera and hoping the bug doesn’t move too much, or a gust of wind doesn’t come up, is always a challenge for me. I feel there is quite a bit of luck involved in snapping the picture at the right moment too.

I do like the detail in the focus on the bug and the softness of the rose caused by depth of field in the photograph.

Street entertainers are delightful and plentiful in bigger cities like Quebec. You can find jugglers, fire-eaters, singers, mimes.... I always enjoy watching them and they normally gather quite a crowd around them!

Spring in Vermont means roadside waterfalls around almost every corner when the snow melts off the mountains. You always know where they are by the line of cars on the side of the road when tourists stop with their cameras ;)

I’m fortunate to live in beautiful New England, the place millions of people flock to every fall to see the foliage. This shot was taken in New Hampshire, Franconia, to be exact right outside our hotel room which is nestled against a small river. In the mornings when the day begins to heat up the mist rises up off the waters producing a visual feast.

This is a second image from an abandoned structure we came across while hiking in an urban park. Obviously at one point this was a magnificent building and while sad to see most of it gone I’m glad at least some of the structure remains because it strikes the imagination of how grand this once was. Located in central Massachusetts.

The ragusa, or beach, roses are found in great abundance on Cape Cod. The vibrant pink flowers set against the sandy white background blends perfectly and adds to the overall charm of the Cape and all things “beach”.

Summer mornings sometimes have a surreal kind of look, especially around bodies of water where the mist is just beginning to rise. I’ve always loved the look and am even willing to get up early (on occasion!) to see it.

Some scenes take your breath away...for me, this was one of those. Driving down a country road I came across this picture of nature re-born with all the spring greens and the wooden fence, a part of the tree trunks of old, a perfect combination of effect!
