Land of the dragonflies

Today, I visited Back Bay Wildlife Refuge… or as I now think of it, Land of the Dragonflies! Hoping to get some actual macro shots when I go back later this week, but for now– these are my favorites.

Just spent Thanksgiving weekend in Virginia, but sadly only had enough time to make it to the beach one day.  Before I left, I got an eBook on slow shutter speeds.  It had a section on “Intentional Camera Movement” photography, which I’ve tried before with some success, but couldn’t wait to try on the beach.  I got one that worked perfectly! Love the way it smoothed everything into a watercolor-esque photo.  However, I still like the normal long exposure photo too.
