From Clicking to Creating
This weeks From Clicking to Creating is a catch up on where we are, and a photo prompt post.
We left Utah on Thursday and headed for Idaho. We knew we could boondock in Idaho, at a place we had stayed last year. We love Wyoming, and the Jackson area, but it’s not the best for boondocking spots. So we came to the Snake river for a couple weeks instead. We got settled under some trees, which at the time seemed like a good idea.
The 2 Lil Owls prompt this week is, Out the window. This was looking out the window, kind of, I did stand outside to get this shot.
On Friday, people started parking right next to us. Then more people came, then even more. 4 Wheelers, motorcycles, ya not cool. We decided to stay put, because we just didn’t have it in us to move. Saturday morning it rained, but as soon as the rain stopped….it was like staying at a race track. Plus, we really needed to get out of the trees. Our electricity depends on solar, and between the trees, and the rain, we weren’t doing so good. So we drove up on a hill, out of the trees, and away from the people. We weren’t there 30 minutes and a herd of sheep started coming towards us.
This old sheep dog was with them. He came back later when the sheep were pretty far away, and hung out with us. He looooved having his ears scratched. And he appreciated the kibble I gave him too.
I ended up using this photo for the out the window, even though it is technically out the door. I sat in the doorway with both dogs while the sheep grazed all around the RV. They came right up to the steps, and Torrey just couldn’t quite figure out what they were doing.
All these photos certainly tell a story, which is what photography is all about.
This weeks Dogwood 52 is a technical one. Creating a starburst with either the sun, or lights. I had to do some research on this one, and learned that in order to achieve this effect, you need an aperture of f/18. I was hoping for a cool landscape shot, but that didn’t quite materialize. So, I took this photo of the sun in the trees instead.
The best part is, I learned something new that I can apply if the right landscape, or something else comes along.
Ok, fun prompts this week, what have you created?
