Another month has flown by and once again I must apologize for the dearth of blog posts. I have no really good excuse, other than I have been heads down a lot on my next ebook. I’ve been struggling a bit with it for various reasons, and I’ll probably talk a little about them in another blog post soon, but for now, I wanted to get December’s wallpaper up for you.
This one is from the commute home after a rather long day at work. It was a cold and wet fall evening, and the wind was blowing away the last leaves on the trees. The road was littered with mostly yellow leaves and the rain really brought out the colors that appeared in my headlights. I had made a similar photograph during my One Camera/One Lens/One Month experiment, so I had an idea of the kind of photograph I might get. I held the camera in front of the steering wheel with one hand and fired off a few shots, using a slow shutter speed to blur the motion from the car. This particular shot was to me the best of the bunch. I hope you like it, too.

You may have guessed that this would be the November wallpaper if you saw it when I posted it on Flickr, and you would have been right. After I shot and processed it, it was obvious to me that it would make a fine desktop/phone/tablet wallpaper. So… here it is.
I shot this at Fort Benjamin Harrison in Indianapolis, about 10 minutes from my office, on my lunch break. It’s the same location I shot for the June 2011 wallpaper, but of course with the blaze of autumn color instead of the cool greens of late spring/early summer. I did bump the color saturation up slightly in post-processing but that’s about it. I hope you like it.

I’m a little late with this one, as my mother once again reminds me, but because I am, you get an image from this past weekend that I photographed while I was at the Close to Home workshop in Port Townsend, Washington.
This one is actually from the World Wide PhotoWalk on Sunday, which Ray led and which featured the Kinetic Sculpture Race. Before the race began, however, I was walking around the docks with Brian Matiash, Nicole Young and Jacob Lucas, just seeing what I could see. There was fog rising from the islands across Puget Sound and I was trying to find a landscape shot in there. A gull was floating in the water and I kept thinking that it would soon leave so I could get a clean shot. It did take off, but I suddenly decided to include it in the frame, giving the photograph a little twist to the standard landscape shot.
I hope you enjoy it.
