Typical June

June in my neighborhood is a mixture of sun, wind and cloudy cool to warm conditions. This makes for some interesting photographic opportunities. These pictures were all taken on Saturday morning and highlight how weather conditions may give you some interesting results.
Our friend Martin a lovely horse is in the shadows of the tree with strong back lighting caused by the sun being magnified through the foggy clouds. It makes for a interesting look with strong contrast between colors and strong light.

The next two pictures were converted using a solarizing filter and then converted to black and white. The picture was taken at the same time as that of Martin the horse and was your everyday shot of someone walking up the trail. Ho-hum I thought as I took the shot but it does have some interesting aspects when seen through a more artistic perspective.

The open field and hillside highlight the weather conditions and the ever changing colors exhibited at this time of year.
Flower with its paper like leaves is contrasted by the gravel background.

Macro mode was used to take this photo of a bright red of this bottle brush and then some glow was added in photoshop CS5. All photos in this post were taken with the Leica D-Lux 4.
