One thing I learned early on with my photography was there is a huge world of interesting topics to capture in photos --- and not always to you end up with what you initially set out to do. I typically have a certain subject in mind that I'm on the lookout for when I head out to take photos. And I suspect that 90% of the time I find other interesting things along the way. And once in a while I completely switch focus on the fly based on what I'm finding. But the primary learning I had was to keep my eyes open, and go with what I'm finding on any particular day.
During my trip to Annapolis and Chincoteaque in early May I was focused on the May Day flowers in Annapolis followed with the Chincoteaque ponies. And as you saw from previous blog entries, I was able to find and photograph both of these. But I also found other things that interested me on the way that were unplanned (like the wisteria - which was also featured in a previous blog post). Here are some of the other finds I made:
Since Chincoteaque is an island, I was able to capture both sunset photos ...
And heading on over to Assateaque in the morning to catch sunrise.
Assateague was also great for birding (and as a bonus got the deer crossing through the marsh).
Lighthouses (in this case the Assateague lighthouse) always make great photo subjects.
And as I traveled through the area I also found some interesting churches. This was the Market Street Methodist Church in Onancock VA.
When I saw the field of yellow, I had circle around to come back and take a few photos.
And LOVE always deserves a picture!
I spent some time on the Maryland side of Assateague Island as well ... a very serene landscape.
All photographs were taken with a Canon 5DM2 or 6D with a Canon EF 24-70mm 2.8L USM or EF 70-200 f2.8L IS II USM +2x
