Nokomis Lookout

Rick Florida, HDR, Landscape, Uncategorized 0 Comments

This is the lifeguard lookout stand in Nokomis Florida. When I came upon this I noticed a gentleman sitting on the stairs in quiet contemplation. I'm pretty self conscious so I did my best not to make too much noise while taking this picture. The clicks on my camera can be a little annoying, so after I got the shot I quickly moved on to leave the soul in peace.

Holding Pattern

Rick Landscape, Tampa 0 Comments

A holding pattern is exactly what Flight 500 was in when I took this. It was getting close to sunset and being stuck in a window seat I figured I’d make the best of it by pulling out my camera. I think the guy sitting next to me was a little amused, nonetheless each time my side faced west I had this view of the sun setting over the Gulf of Mexico. Of course once we landed there was no sun to see, just typical afternoon thunder showers in Tampa, Florida.

Lower Longboat

Rick Bridges, HDR, Landscape, Sarasota 0 Comments

Thousands of little fish, I’m not sure what they’re called, swim close to the surface and the birds along the waterways are more than happy to scoop them up. This is the southern tip of Longboat Key near Sarasota Florida. Late afternoon is a great time to be close to the water as you’ll always see something interesting and unexpected. The day I took this I saw a six or seven foot shark about a hundred feet off shore (in an area not too close to the beaches). As I said, interesting and unexpected.

Van Wezel Patio

Rick HDR, Sarasota 0 Comments

This is the patio of the Van Wezel Performing Arts center in Sarasota, Florida. The architecture and purple color of the building are unique in the area and stand out from a distance. I took this at sunset and was more drawn to the reflection of the sunset than the real thing itself. I’m always excited in a geeky kinda way, when I find something unique close to home, and the Van Wezel is a pleasure to look at from any angle, near or far.

Magic Dusk

Rick Florida, HDR, Landscape 0 Comments

Minutes after a sunset are sometimes the best to enjoy; the light of dusk on an ocean shore on a warm day is simply exquisite. I think that if I didn’t have a real job, I might just spend every evening by the beach capturing sunsets at dusk. But for now, the occasional picture is enough to keep me happy. Happy Friday everyone and I hope this brings a touch of that magic to your day.

Cool Patio

Rick HDR, Landscape 0 Comments

This is an empty patio during sunset on Grouse Mountain in North Vancouver. Now that we’re headed into summer, I suspect this patio is busy in the evenings and a perfect spot to watch the sun go down over the Canadian peaks and into the Pacific. I had so much fun taking this that whenever I’m in Vancouver I look up to this point from the city below and wonder what the scene must look like. I guess I need to head back up there soon.

Nakomis Moonrise

Rick Florida, Landscape, Night Photography 0 Comments

I had just finished shooting the sunset here in Nakomis Florida and was packing up to head home. Fortunate for me I had my wife along who pointed out the moon shining from the opposite direction. Some days I just don’t know when to quit, but I suppose that’s not such a bad thing, at least as it pertains to photography.
