Today's and most of this weeks photographs will come from Assateague Island National Seashore in Maryland. Assateague is a barrier island bordered on the east by the Atlantic Ocean and on the west by Sinepuxent Bay. The two miles of ocean beaches offer swimming, surfing and fishing and the bay side gives visitors a chance to explore by canoe or kayak. While on the island you can go crabbing and clamming or take in one of the many ranger programs. If you are fourteen and under you can take part in the Junior Ranger program. I guess if I say much more I will have nothing to type the rest of the week.
The number one reason we went to Assateague was to see the horse. I had only ever been there once before with Linda and her parents and this was to be Shane's first trip. As you can see by the first photograph we knew we were on the right track to seeing horses or an engine company that didn't still have there last brain cell. Thankfully it was the horses.
If you have never photographed a dark subject with a bright back ground in direct sunlight you have no idea how difficult it is to not blow out all the highlights and lose detail or save them and make the subject to dark losing there detail. Well I didn't pay close enough attention to my LCD display and really shot a bunch of crap that will be deleted. Shane on the other hand did an excellent job with his setting therefore you will be seeing none of his because I don't want him showing me up. Just kidding Shane, I will be posting his photographs this week also he really did a great job, could he have a future in photography?
