This particular day was ridiculously sunny. I decided to finally try a polarized filter... I had read that these filters could be tricky, as you need to alter your camera settings to compensate for the "sunglasses" covering your lens. Once I got the hang of it, it wasn't too bad.
You know how the sky always looks pale blue or white in photos, when in reality, it's a beautifully rich blue? Look at the difference between the contrails and the sky above. The polarized filter is the only thing making the sky so blue (no editing involved). I think I'll definitely be using this filter a lot next summer.
|Lucas insisted on leading the way... we got lost... for a long time. Jack somehow stayed asleep in my Mei Tai wrap the entire time!|
|Lucas got his first experience peeing outdoors... I mean, we were really lost... who knew how long it would take us to find our way back to the barn?|
|We finally found a lookout tower that gave us a cheater's vantage point. Okay, not really. We were still lost.|
|We made it out! ...after an hour and a half of walking in circles, we treated ourselves to the biggest roundest pumpkin we could find :)|
