I’ve not done much with the interplay of sun and lens, but I think this turned out well.
This photo was taken in winter, 2020. Most of the sedge field is actually around the bend to the right and is big enough to get seriously turned around in momentarily! There are several small creeks and marshy areas that prevent straight line walking. A fascinating preserve on the eastern edge of Huntsville, Alabama.
I'm from Huntsville, Alabama where I work as a Software Engineer and part-time banjo instructor. My wife Miiko and I worship at Rivertree Downtown.
I've been playing various instruments since my teen years. I started mandolin and dulcimer at about age 17 and banjo at 20. I love just about all kinds of music. In terms of banjo styles, I play and teach Scruggs, melodic, clawhammer, and 2-finger styles.
I'm also very keen on theology, being a Trail Care Partner with the Land Trust of North Alabama, photography, urban planning, architecture, astronomy, ATM (amateur telescope making), birding, martial arts, and about 30 other distracting hobbies to a (mercifully) lesser extent.
