usually want as much in focus and sharp as possible. Thus, I use a higher aperture for landscapes. It’s a creative choice.
Tell me, in the comments, what you think of “bokeh.” Does this image work for you? Do you like the blurry look around the rosebuds, or would you have liked to have seen everything in focus?

waterfalls. See, that’s what attracted me to the location. I love waterfalls and thought this would be a perfect location to practice my photography. So, I loaded up my gear and headed on the hike. My only other hiking experience was during a recent trip to Acadia National Park. I was able to handle a trail that was labeled a “moderate” trail. That being the case, I figured, if I took my time and was careful, I should be able to handle Ricketts Glen State Park! HA!
I was in over my head. See, something that I didn’t consider was that I found the first part of the trail to be easy. That was because it was all downhill. Lol You know the saying, “what goes up must come down?” Well, the opposite was true. What goes down must go back up! Steps were made from some big, WET (slippery) boulders. One after another. The full loop was over 7 miles. Down and Up!!
The waterfalls were beautiful, but by the end of the trail, I didn’t care at all about the falls. I wasn’t taking pictures. I just wanted it to be over! Lol
As I said, in the beginning of this, one of the benefits of taking landscape pictures is getting out in nature. You also get to experience new locations. I love every adventure I’ve been on—including Ricketts Glen State Park! I would like to return there someday—just not soon. Lol
What Is This Page?
Since I love photography and teaching, I thought I would start a Blog page and share how I take my images, what I was thinking and about me.
