My Favorite Images from 2020

2020 was a year I would like to forget on a very personal note as I lost my brother-in-law to COVID, but on a photography note, as I reflect on 2020, this was a year that my photography evolved into many other areas such as my vineyard and wine art photography as well as my digital art photography.

2020 was a year that I found a new love for frog photography, and I thought some of my best images this year were of the bullfrogs at the Norfolk Botanical Garden. I developed a good system of photographing flowers and still life images from my home. 2020 was a year of growth for me in my photography.

I am blessed that I am able to photograph all these different subjects and share these images, knowledge, and adventures on my journey in photography with all of you.

I look forward to see what the new year of 2021 brings as I continue my journey in capturing the tranquility and beauty of wildlife and nature and creating new digital art images and sharing these visions and knowledge with you all.

I hope everyone has a happy and safe New Year!!!

Here are my 9 favorite wildlife, nature and vineyard images from 2020!

Digital Art Photography Collection

I have added a new collection of digital art photography to my Fine Art America portfolio website. These images were created from my wildlife and wine photography using various effects such as watercolor painting, ink, textures, or illustrations on my photographs.

In this collection there are 14 digital art images with most being wine art images, but I have also added two wildlife images that I have made into digital art. One of the wildlife images is of a great egret in flight with nesting material. Another wildlife image is of a pair of great blue herons in courting display at their nest.

My digital wine art images include subjects of wine glasses, wine bottles and wine grapes. I created various effects using a software program on my images. I photographed intentionally to turn them into digital wine art.

Hope you enjoy this new style and collection of my digital art photography. I really have enjoyed using my creative side and making, for me, a new style of photography.

All the very best,

Lori

Fall Colors at Stumpy Lake

Last Saturday morning, I headed to Stumpy Lake Natural Area in Virginia Beach, Virginia for a photo outing. I wanted to check on how the leaves were doing in changing colors and to see what bird activity might be around this time in the fall. Even though I knew it would not be a good sunrise, I still arrived as I normally do, at least a half hour before sunrise.

I knew that the rain was coming later that morning and had hoped for some dramatic clouds. There were some decent clouds but not as dramatic as I had hoped for. However, the leaves were turning into fall colors very nicely around the lake which made for some attractive fall color images. Here are a couple of my fall color images of Stumpy Lake.

As I was taking the landscape photographs this morning, there was a lot of bird activity in the sky, especially with the many great egrets around the lake. In addition, there was a lot of bird activity with terns, cormorants and great blue herons. I found myself to be quite focused on the great egrets and great blue herons as I found each of these birds in very scenic and picturesque locations in trees that had a lot of changing color leaves. I was glad to have such as cloudy morning as it helped to diffuse my lighting especially for the egret images.

I used my new Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Contemporary Lens for Canon EF along with my new Canon 6D Mark II camera and was very pleased with the images that this combination provided. I especially liked the ability to change my focal length anywhere from 150mm to 600mm and that it gave me such a wide range of images with the birds. I could go tight for a up close and then back out to create a scenic type bird picture. I had a lot of fun playing with the lens and being creative in my photography.

Below are a couple of my egret and heron fall color images from Stumpy Lake. I am hoping to go back out in a few weeks to see how the changing colors are doing. Hopefully, I will have some new images soon to post from Stumpy Lake.
