Golden Lights

In search of beautiful light is always a quest for photographers and golden light of sunrise, sunsets, beautiful sunlit trees, cloudy days and waterfront are ones we truly delight in.  The rolling hills and fields in the countryside spun with golden lights are also a favorite.  There is beauty of golden light to be found everywhere if we just pursue it.  A recent interior design project sent us on a journey for just the right light and color for fine art prints to complete our design.  With our blue and white project, what is more beautiful than golden light hues coupled with the classical softness of HDR.  The six images for this “Art on Canvas” project are thus entitled “Golden Lights.”

“Above yon gleaming skies of gold 
One lone imperial peak is seen; 
While gathered at his feet in green 
Ten thousand foresters are told:
And all so still! so still the air 
That duty drops the web of care. 
 
Beneath the sunset’s golden sheaves 
The awful deep walks with the deep, 
Where silent sea doves slip and sweep.”*

A Tree Grows in Crystal City?

A Tree Grows in Crystal City?

Architecture, historic sites and Pop Art murals are some of my favorite subjects to shoot when traveling. There is a plethora of fun and funky pop art, murals and interior design all around you and especially in our cities that you have more to photograph that you can imagine.

I also love to photograph red subjects (as you can see from much of my work) and this is especially so in art and design, thus the attraction to this particular art wall in Crystal City. The subject is an exterior wall mural of an authentic design sketch and that’s pretty interesting in itself but what fascinated my photographic/HDR eyes as I passed by was the tree shadow on the wall art.  What a contrast from the art, concrete and buildings of hard surfaces to the soft shadowy live wind-blown tree growing up in the city making its own art reflection. Thus, this was a “must-do” addition for my HDR Pop Art on Canvas Collection. If you are looking for interesting art/artists for HDR application, check out the links below and your city, town or country for great places to photograph this art subject.

Enola Gay in Stunning HDR

Enola Gay On Display
Smithsonian National Air & Space Museum
Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center

“The Enola Gay gained additional national attention in 1995 when the cockpit and nose section of the aircraft was exhibited at the National Air and Space Museum (NASM) of the Smithsonian Institution in downtown Washington, D.C. The exhibit was changed due to a controversy over original historical script displayed with the aircraft. In 2003, the entire restored B-29 went on display at NASM’s new Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center.”

“This exhibition, coinciding with the 50th anniversary of the end of World War II, told the story of the role of the Enola Gay in securing Japanese surrender. It contained several major components of the Enola Gay, the B-29 bomber used in the atomic mission that destroyed Hiroshima, Japan. The components on display included two engines, the vertical stabilizer, an aileron, propellers, and the forward fuselage that contains the bomb bay.

A video presentation about the Enola Gay’s mission included interviews with the crew before and after the mission including mission pilot Col. Paul Tibbets. The exhibition text summarized the history and development of the Boeing B-29 fleet used in bombing raids against Japan.”
