This site has moved to another blog called, ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHY. There will me no further posts to this site. The new site will continue so show my regular shooting progress, but will also contain other topics on photography, such as hands-on equipment and software reviews, historical information on photography, and much more.

When it was set up, the DAILY STOCK SHOT PROJECT was supposed to be a one year project. Last year I extended the project another year due to the popularity of the site, but now it is time to move on.

If you wish to continue following, please visit my new blog at ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHY and save it as a new link.

The color and contrast in this set of nature images was enhanced by the low position of the winter sun.  I took the photos as part of a long term stock series that I call "Patterns of Nature".

This photo and the one above were taken with the Nikon D7000 and 40mm macro lens used wide open at f/2.8.  The image below of an Eastern Water Snake was taken with the Nikon 16-85mm zoomed out.

I ran across this freshly cut tree in the woods and used the Fuji X100 in close-up mode to capture the graphic pattern of the rings and the crack. In this series I seek to establish a strong, central focal point in the image and allow the composition to radiate outward from it.
