Review to follow, after I've had a few days to play with it. but I likey so far :)
Every once in a while, I look back on some of my old sd cards and revisit some of the images I have saved. It's funny how you can go over and over sd cards and always find something new. I don't know why I've never published this image, I obviously thought the tree was amazing! I was probably taking a lot of pictures of trees at the time and just somehow ignored this one?
This image is from 2011, taken at Fontainebleau State Park, St Tammany Parish. I edited in dhdr sepia orton effect. I love the highlights of the moss, the tree seems to be reaching out to speak to you, and sepia is a perfect tone for Oak, it gives it that "antique" feel as Oaks often imply. I think I may be looking over some more sd cards while categorizing and filing them in some sort of system I can deal with. Right now they are in a ziploc bag! YIKES!! Anyways.....Check out this beautiful State Park if you are ever near Mandeville, Louisiana, just before you cross the Causeway going South to New Orleans. Great nature photography hike. :)
That time again! Don't forget to set your clocks an hour forward tonight!
The modern idea of daylight saving was first proposed in 1895 by George Vernon Hudson and it was first implemented byGermany and Austria-Hungary starting on 30 April 1916. Many countries have used it at various times since then, most consistently since the energy crises of the 1970s.
Although not punctual in the modern sense, ancient civilizations adjusted daily schedules to the sun more flexibly than modern DST does, often dividing daylight into twelve hours regardless of day length, so that each daylight hour was longer during summer. For example, Roman water clocks had different scales for different months of the year: at Rome's latitude the third hour from sunrise, hora tertia, started by modern standards at 09:02 solar time and lasted 44 minutes at the winter solstice, but at the summer solstice it started at 06:58 and lasted 75 minutes. After ancient times, equal-length civil hours eventually supplanted unequal, so civil time no longer varies by season. Unequal hours are still used in a few traditional settings, such as some Mount Athos monasteries and all Jewish ceremonies. Source: Wikipedia, Read More...
