Spring!

Wednesday, April 6th, 2011

викSpring is here, and Bloomington lives up to its name. Here are some shots from around campus, which has particularly beautiful landscaping.

And here are a few shots I took just down the street from my house.  There are fantastic white-flowering trees lining the road.

Of course, not everything is white.

    Amazing.
    What a difference a few weeks makes.

  2. Bill Lambert Says:

    Those white trees are Bradford Pear trees. And they are magnificent! Our grass started to turn green yesterday – I think spring is coming here this weekend.

  3. David Crowell Says:

    Nice shots!

    I had to mow the yard last weekend…

  4. Fonk Says:

    Wow. Beautiful! I do miss springtime in the Midwest. It’s much more dramatic than it is here in the West.

  5. Dave Says:

    Gorgeous!! I love those old stone buildings, and you’ve captured them beautifully…

  6. Chris Says:

    What a dramatic turn-around. Spring is lovely here, but not as colorful.

  7. John Says:

    College campuses area a great place to ride. The scenery is spectacular and the buildings, roads and foliage are nice to look at too.

  8. Chandra Says:

    Great photos, great locations, awesome job!
    Peace 🙂

    I agree with the other comments – very nice photos! Are you using filters or post-processing the files to get the colors so bright?

  10. Apertome Says:

    Dave: Thanks!

    These shots are right out of the camera. Three factors help get bright colors:
    1. Proper exposure
    2. Vivid mode on the camera
    3. Many of these shots do use a circular polarizer filter. The effect is similar to looking through sunglasses — it deepens the image, and makes the colors pop a little more, when used effectively.

  11. dave Says:

    Thanks, I kind of suspected you might have used a polarizing filter for some – there’s fantastic color in the sky and contrast with the clouds.

  12. Apertome Says:

    Thanks again. Yeah, I use the polarizer a lot, for those reasons, and others. It’s a great filter!
