Visiting Woodford

Today, I went to the town of Woodford. It is located near Ardmore on highway 53. I wanted to see Montain Lake but it was closed. So Mary and I decided to go around and see what we could find. We took pictures of a creek near a farm, horses and beautiful trees. Here are some of them.

Many Views of a Waterfall.

Turner Falls Park, the oldest park in Oklahoma, has been visited for many people in different seasons. It has a seventy seven foot fall to a natural swimming pool. This cascade makes the majestic Turner Falls. It is considered the largest waterfalls in Oklahoma and in the pictures you can see why. This park is located in Davis, Oklahoma.

Seeing Themes

Today, I went to Ardmore Regional Park with the camera club to phography in a Hay Field. We wanted to take advantage of this theme to develop our images. Having a theme in mind will help us to be focus on our project. We spent about two hours in the place and found that the rolls where everywhere. Here are some of them in sepia.

Fishing Pier, Lake Murray

One of the closest lakes in Ardmore is Lake Murray. After the rain we had, the trees lost their fall colors and turned brown very quickly. I went to visit the fishing pier and took some pictures of the surrounding area.

Lake of the Arbuckles

Early morning, my son and I went to the lake. There were two fishermen leaving the dock . I wanted to take pictures of the mist over the lake this morning. It was very dark when we arrived but beautiful. A light breeze and cool temperature was a wonderful scenery.

Sunset at the Lake

I have been in Lake Murray for many sunrises but since I moved close to this lake, this is my first sunset.

Nikon D200, Nikkor 18-200 mm lenses.


When I see this image, I think about how things can be confusing and complicated in life. Sometimes it seems that everything is mixed of in our daily life  like these twigs.

I took this picture in the Lake Murray yesterday. It was a cool morning with clouds and sunbeams. I walked around and near the marine I saw twigs on the ground. At first I was amazed ot the beautiful colors on the grass at the background, but the twigs where right there...almost like telling me that we can find good and bad situations in life and we always can manage them with faith.

Clouds & Sunbeams

I love sunbeams because I find they're beautiful and amazing. It is that they have something magical and divine. This morning I took some pictures at Lake Murray near the marine. The clouds were full and the they just let a ray of light went through.

I used Nikon D200, Nikkor 18-200 mm lenses and ND filter.

Follow me...

When I see these steps, I remember all the good days I had this summer in this park. The first day I took my son who is eight years old to swim in the cool water of the Travertine Creek. It was a warm day and we wanted to spend the whole day in the park. We packed our lunch and drinks...the dogs.  But we soon realized that we had forgotten the inner tube to go down the current.

 My son was sad about it.  I told him we would not leave instead I drove to the closer Walmart and bought a new inner tube for him.

We had so much fun that day. It is amazing how a picture can capture so much.:)

Magical World

 I love reflections and abstract in nature. While I was in the forest yesterday morning, I found a nice place near the camping ground with some trees and flowers' reflections. I had not been in this area before because the park was very busy and I like quite places for photography. But, yesterday was different. People returned to their normal activities and the park was quite.
 I set up my Nikon D80 on a tripod and a 70-300 mm lenses. The soft light from the morning sun made the place magical. Running with the water down the waterfall, there were dead leaves and branches. What a wonderful world!

Visiting the Arbuckle Lake in Sulphur

This morning I wanted to take pictures of the sunrise at the Arbuckle Lake so I left my house around 6:45 a.m. This lake is located less than a two hour drive from both the Dallas and Oklahoma City areas. But , of course, for me it is about 25 minutes from home on highway 35. 
  The weather was and clear. However, I checked the sunrise time on the internet more time. I usually use or . The information said that the sunrise would be around 7:20 a.m so I had to hurry if I wanted to be in the lake on time.
  Since I liked to take scenic view of the lake, I took my Nikkor 18-200mm lenses and my Nikon D200. To avoid reflection, I used a polarizing filter.
  By the time I arrived, there were three fishermen in the marina. I saw some birds and the rest of the lake was very quiet.

   These are some of my favorite ones:

Landscape Blurs

After three days of rain, I was able to go back to the park and take pictures again. I wanted to show impressionistic look of nature. I took my Nikon D200 and 70-300 mm lenses for the shots.
Here are some of those images. Enjoy!
