Changing Focus

On a recent road trip to capture fall colors,  a plane did a low-fly over the scene.  Almost forgot that we were close to the airport, but I was ready for the unexpected change.


Took a few steps forward and refocused.  Caught the ever-changing beauty of lapping waves.


A closer look at the pebbles with incoming wave lines.  Used ‘dream smoothing’ in Gimp to enhance the image.

    Oh I know all about what a “surprise” it is to change focus. Great shot of the plane and I just LOVE the last picture. Thank you, Olga.

  6. I always try to take photos of airplanes but by the time the camera is in focus, they are gone. Nice capture of the plane and moving water. I downloaded Gimp but haven’t learned how to use it yet. 🙂

      Thank-you, Miriam. My daughter has been slowly helping me with Gimp, as I need its assistance. The basics using colors is quite fun. I love the tool of cloning to adjust imperfections in a photo. Still learning. 🙂

    The water is lovely and meditative, but I have to say that plane made me think instantly of 9/11! (K)
