Friday, July 31st marked the first part of our move and cross country road trip. We departed Washington DC, got stuck in the wonderful Friday summer traffic, and headed to New Jersey. A short 3.5 hour trip took us 6 hours. Whew, that last hour was rough!
But I did get the chance to document the trip from the car. Even though I was just sitting in the passenger seat, I still had a lot of fun trying to capture something different or to document the amazing sky.
There was a big storm rolling through the area, so there were all these dark miserable clouds. And peeking out above those clouds was this perfectly crisp bright blue sky with puffy white clouds. This is why I love summer so much. These amazing skies.
When I arrived at my parents house, their front lawn flowers were in full bloom. It was 9 o'clock at night so I had to wait till the morning to start getting my shots. As soon as I could, I was out on the front lawn with my macro lens and tripod. Not only did I hit up those flowers first thing in the morning, but I went back out again in the late morning for even more. Trying to play around with the different morning light, which was just perfect.
