This past weekend, we took a little trip out to Eckert's Orchards in Millstadt, IL. Although I take a LOT of pictures, they are most often pictures of opportunity. This trip, however, I had a number of images in my mind that I wanted to create, all the way down to composition and color.
Fortunately, the weather (and sky!) cooperated with my imagination, and conditions were just about perfect! Included here are three of my successful shots - at least they met my expectations and hopes. Of course, looking closely at them now I can think of things I'd do differently, but to the extent of my ability this past weekend, I like them!
All shots taken with Nikon D60, f3.5-5.6 18-55mm kit lens. Click on each picture for a larger version!
