Natural Monday: Beach Bamboo

Hi guys, its been awhile since i posted on Monday. My sincerest apologies, i was so caught up with taking shots with my new gear ๐Ÿ™‚ time passed and i forgot to upload frequently.
Let me confess there’s been some photography techniques I’ve wanted to try for the longest time, one of which is Long Exposure Photography. There’s just something about them, it captures extended time and creates surreal images and with my new gear it’s within my grasp ๐Ÿ™‚ .

This is my first Long Exposure Sunset Shot of bamboo shoots along the beach, hopefully as the sunsets get better into the year i’ll be able to show you a side of Lagos few people get to see. The horizon was dusty but i love the milky white waves ๐Ÿ™‚ .ย Comments and suggestions are always welcome ๐Ÿ™‚ .

Natural Monday: Purple Haze

Sometimes a bouquet of flowers isn’t as beautiful as one single flower in full bloom. That’s the feeling i got when i stripped away the colourful noise to reveal this single blooms presence.
My muse for today is a common wild flower, usually a creeper and it’s photosensitive (blooms when the sun comes up).

Reptile Close Up

Macro shots is this weekend’s theme, Macro in photography denotes nice big close-ups of itsy-bitsy things. The little details our human eyes might never see are exposed by artificial lens.
I would typically do a flower muse but not today. I went in the search of the weird and got pretty cool shots ๐Ÿ˜€ , this lizard just finished a little battle and was resting when i stumbled on him. My once in an Orange Moon chance to get cool shots of these fast critters.
Here’s a link to the WPC Post to see more cool entries – CLOSE- UP.
Interestingly enough i have a whole section for Dragonflies, especially colourful like in their post. You can check them out here
DRAGONFLIES.
