Cinderella’s Castle

I’m sharing a couple of iPhone 6 Plus photos I took of Cinderella’s Castle at Walt Disney World. I edited these using the new Enlight editing app, which I’m really enjoying learning to use.

So, for all you Disney fans out there, here’s the castle without a kerjillion people surrounding it!

Bohemian Hotel

“How shall we learn to know ourselves? By reflection? Never; but only through action. Strive to do thy duty; then you shall know what is in thee.”
–Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Today’s photo of the Bohemian Hotel is the result of getting up early on a day off to go to Celebration, Florida for a morning walk. I took along my Fujifilm X-T1 and a lightweight tripod and captured this photo when the sun was just above the horizon and the lake was perfectly still. This is an HDR image, comprised of three bracketed exposures combined in HDR Pro and Photoshop.

France, in Florida

France Pavilion, Walt Disney World EPCOT. Captured with my iPhone 6+ and edited with Snapseed. The trick here is to go at park open (times vary; check the schedule), enter through the International Gateway and head straight to France, where the pastry shop opens for breakfast service before any of the other countries are open to the public. No crowds and far better photo opportunities.

On Crimson Wing

Ruin seize thee, ruthless King!
Confusion on thy banners wait;
Though fanned by Conquest’s crimson wing,
They mock the air with idle state.

– Thomas Gray (English Poet, 1716 – 1771)

Poppies … Poppies …


Along with the tulips (which I love) come the poppies. They don’t last very long, but their large blooms and vibrant colors are terrific subjects for flower photography. They can sometimes be a challenge to capture, however. Because the flowers are so large, light and delicate, the slightest wind will send them swaying – and we’ve had quite a few windy days here in Salt Lake City as of late.

That we find a crystal or a poppy beautiful means
that we are less alone,
that we are more deeply inserted into existence
than the course of a single life would
lead us to believe.
