Either I am getting better at capturing images that are good enough to post or I’m getting a little less discriminatory when making my choices. Probably a little of both. With all the recent inclement weather and this brutal cold, I have more time to process some of the pictures I took when the weather was very nice. These images were taken last fall, during a hike on one of the trails around Mer Bleue Bog. I have been to this bog many times and always find something new to photograph.
The landscape and lighting change continuously. One minute you are walking through the bog on a boardwalk and the next surrounded by forest or fields. I shot handheld and at times, had to increase my ISO to 3200 in order to get a high enough shutter speed. This was very noticeable when processing these pictures. Some images become very grainy, so I applied noise reduction in Lightroom which is something I have never done before. I think this worked well with some subjects such as the leaves and the mushrooms.
Two of my images have flare which I usually try to avoid but was unable to this time. I was on a small bridge over this boggy water and had little room to maneuver. But I kinda like the flare in these images so I went with them this time. Hope you enjoy your visit to Mer Bleue Bog.
