Time is flying by and it will soon be spring and travel to our favorite spring places. This year we are adding the ocean to our travel itinerary as well as our number one destination the amazing Biltmore Estate and Gardens. This historical place is a photographer’s dream from the beautiful architecture to the landscapes with the Blue Ridge mountains as a backdrop to the Conservatory, winery, equestrian center and more. Our favorite, the “Blooms” (Festival of Flowers) each year is a must-do for floral and landscape photographers. The Biltmore is very hospitable to photographers and encourage you to photograph the grounds and gardens. There are so many opportunities for photography, not only for the professional photographer but for all photographers and visitors. Take advantage of the beauty at Biltmore.
On Friday, January 20, 2017 our new President of the United States Donald J. Trump will take the oath of office at the Capitol. This is an earlier post showcasing our beautiful city from our Washington DC Photo Walk.
If you love beautiful architecture and history then Washington DC is the place to be for photography. We are native Washingtonians and no matter how many times we think we have photographed it all, we are reminded that we have just “tipped the iceberg” in shooting this amazing city. We have enjoyed many photo walks from our first photo walk and assignment in college until today. It’s beauty is unsurpassed in our estimation. Our next adventure will occur in September/October with photo walks at sunrise-sunset in well-known and “so-called” secret locations. They will be fabulous photo walks and with the incredible restaurants, hotels, history and people in DC, just the best life has to offer for photographers.
This favorite image of the United States Capitol from one of our photowalks is my current timeline image. It was shot in full-daylight with blazing sun, which, in DC, is a good time for the beauty of the alabaster to glow in its light. It is truly a “shining City on a Hill”!
“How beautiful and perfect is this couple together! Earth is kissed with snow and the sunset beams its approval in stunning colors of the rainbow in electronic hues! Climbing a mountain, withstanding freezing and windy temps make it all worthwhile when the delight of our eyes is such a sight! The tree lifts itself to the heavens for more snow kisses and glory to quench its thirst with promises of days to come of its natural beauty in leaf. If I could, I would put a swing there and swing until spring arrives.”_jacyjoypals
