Photos from Gallup Park

My work had a picnic yesterday afternoon in a really beautiful park on the Huron River. It was such a gorgeous day so I decided to wander around and take some shots. Of course, I’m still using my little point-and-shoot, but I think the lighting helped these turn out alright. As always, critique is welcome and appreciated. πŸ™‚

  1. Shots from the floor! You know which photo I’m talking about. πŸ˜‰ I know a blogger from Perth, Australia who had a blog called Shots from the Floor, and he took photos from the floor in various places.

    I really love your photos of the bridge, and that one with the reflection of the clouds in the water is AMAZING. All the landscape ones too, and that winding path reminds me of Cumberland Forest where I’ve been a couple of times. :’)

    You look pretty! <33

    Also this Lightbox thing is cool. I may use it for my blog too (since my photoblog is fine). Except your things say IMG_number and mine would too because I don't put captions anymore. xP

  2. The park reminds me of a long nature trail behind my neighborhood, although it only has a creek instead of a lake. I always see deer every time I go there. πŸ˜€

    I really love the ninth photo, the one with the lake and clear cloud reflection. It looks so pretty.

    You also look gorgeous. XD I think this is the first time I’ve seen a photo of you.

  3. My first thought was that it looks cold! Looks kind of like autumn when the sun isn’t shining in your face. Does that have something to do with the camera? My cell phone does that but obviously you were using something that has better quality.

    I like your photos for their serenity, but I think if you want more feeling in photos you’d have to focus on a subject (not necessarily a person though). I’m not really a big fan of landscapes mainly because they all tend to look the same even in professional shots, not that I’m saying yours do. But just my thoughts, and the same goes for my own photos!

  4. I love pictures of nature, so I definitely like yours! My favorite’s the one of the sky. It’s simple, but I love looking up at the skies, so it’s really comforting. I can’t comment on photography because I’m horrid at it (My motto for it seems to be, “Just take it already!”), but I like yours. πŸ™‚

  5. Wow, that looks like a beautiful place to have a picnic πŸ™‚ It’s so green, and there’s so many trees! I wish our weather was nice enough to have a picnic. Well, our weather has been sunny and clear, but it’s sooooo hot.

    I like this new layout, by the way! I especially like the hover states on your navigation. I think the headers are a little hard to read though (like the blog title). I usually think cursive-type fonts are easier to read when they’re larger. The overall look is nice and clean though πŸ™‚

  6. Ooh, these are brilliant! Really great colouring and vividness. Even the crappiest camera takes amazing photos on a sunny day like that, IMO, haha! Er, not saying your camera is crappy, though. It actually produces really great shots regardless of the weather, as far as I’ve seen!

    My favourites are the first one, ((Very default Windows desktop background worthy,)) the fifth one, ((Tumblr worthy!)) and the eighth one. ((Looks like it would make an amazing resource for a brush or a PSD or something else webdesign-y.))

    Also, I love your new layout, it’s so pretty! I’m not normally a fan of SUPER basic layout, but this one just works. The front and the petals pull it all together fantastically. I’m a bit jelly, actually! I don’t think I could create a layout like this if I tried. >3<

  7. All of the pictures are beautiful — especially the ones of the wooden bridge! I really liked the first one in the slideshow. :]

    A work picnic sounds really nice and lovely… I didn’t know job places actually did that… I thought it was only on TV! πŸ˜›
