One thing that I have been trying to improve on lately is my landscape or scenery photography. Photographing scenery is a lot different then photographing wildlife. I have always had a problem making the image through the camera look the way it does through my naked eye.
Back at the end of August I made a quick stop at Taylors Falls Sate Park on my way back from a birding trip up north. There as plenty of wildlife in the park but I decided to bring my wide angle lens and take advantage of the beautiful scenery to practice my landscape photography.
Taylors falls is located on the shore of the Saint Croix River. At this point the St Croix is the boundary between Minnesota and Wisconsin. You can see that the shoreline here is very rocky which provides people on both sides of the river with recreational diversions like rock climbing and cliff jumping.
The park is also filled with many natural made potholes. These potholes range in size from a diameter of a couple of feet to some more then 10 feet across and very deep. I was fairly happy with the river pictures but I am afraid that the pot hole picture did not come close to representing the awesome sight that they are in person. I guess that I will need to keep practicing.
