It has been an unusually wet year in Northwest Arkansas. Usually the lawns are beginning to get a brown tint, as the Bermuda grass dies, and the daytime temperatures approach the century mark. Well, we have had some hot days, but today was overcast with a little rain and the temperature did not break 85 degrees. That means one thing. I head to my favorite photographic site and snap a few images. This place is part of the spillway that is adjacent to the dam on a private lake in Bella Vista, AR. Depending on the amount of rain, the spillway is different every time I go there. I have images of this location from every season this past year. I have a little project that I am working on, but I need a few more really nice images of this place. I will probably continue to shoot this place through the winter and into next spring before I decide which images I want to include in the project.
As a photo enthusiast, places like this inspire me to make better images. One way to do that is to return to the same location and make new images. Experiment with the exposure, shutter speed, ISO, etc. Then take your images home and experiment further in PhotoShop or PhotoShop Elements, or whatever post processing software you own. The possibilities are endless.
