My Favorite Photos of 2013

Another year has gone by, and I want to thank those of you who have come to my site for your support.  Admiring Light has grown a fair bit over the past year, and I’ve made a fair bit of changes in my own photographic world.  I transitioned from predominantly shooting Micro 4/3 to predominantly …

Morning in the Gorge

This past weekend, I finally had some time to get out and do some proper shooting.  You know, where you get up early to catch the good light, you bring a tripod and really focus on the photography? I try to get out and shoot like this as often as I can, but given the …

Great Blue Heron, Columbus, OH - Fujifilm X-E1 with Fujinon 60mm f/2.4 Macro

I took about 15 minutes today to finally get out and shoot just a little bit, since I have been working non-stop at home and work.  It’s been a while.  Anyway, there was a great blue heron just waiting along the river dock….and he made quite a striking subject (click to enlarge):

Butterfly - Fujifilm X-E1 with Fujinon 60mm f/2.4 Macro

I’m working on a rather long in-depth post at the moment, but it’s going to take me a day or two to finish it up.  In the meantime, here are some butterflies, taken at the Franklin Park Conservatory, here in Columbus.  Click to enlarge:
