Photographing with a blue background was funny to come after my favorite color blue shot from the day before. This shot was taken while I was in a kayak and the horizon did have to be straightened out because it was rough. I wish the skies were bluer, but we had haze in the sky. Which you can really see in this sunset picture from the day before. I like how the kayak is coming into the picture from the side. So many choices to do a picture with a lot of blue as a negative space with a single subject. Since I try to use either a picture from the day or one recently taken, I thought that this photo from the past weekend was the perfect choice.
Today's photo was done doing my favorite technique of using a large opening (smaller aperture) to get the bokeh in the background. Plus, I got to take pictures of the garden. The garden is going through a change with mildew on the bee balm, but that is not stopping the humming birds from visiting. We now have the hummingbird moth coming to the garden.
