Burke Lake Park

Burke Lake Road and pedestrian bridge spanning the northern end of Burke Lake.

Burke Junction train station. A functioning replica from the days of the steam engine, complete with a wind-driven water well.

This past Saturday, 3 March 2012, having noticed the sun coming out after a cloudy morning I decided to use the opportunity to take a trip out to Burke Lake Park for some photography. Here are two pictures from this excursion. Each picture is actually a composite of multiple images taken with exposures optimized separately for the sky and the land areas. The sky exposures were also taken with a polarizing filter with the sun at approximately 80 degrees left of the camera. The multiple exposures were then combined in Photoshop Elements 9 and Lightroom 4 to achieve the final results.

Calvin Klein’s iconic perfume, hitting the scene in 1994, brought sexiness to the unisex fragrance. With its light, citrusy notes, ck one reminds me of those earlier care-free days of youth. This has become my favorite fragrance. Take a time warp back to those frolic-filled days of playgrounds, water fountains, neighborhood parks, and musical ice cream trucks.

I made the above image with the Panasonic GF-3 mirrorless camera with post production processing using PhotoShop Elements 9
