Church Garden Walk

This past weekend, the weather in Virginia was perfect -- sunny, but not too hot or humid. But, it wasn't the best photography weather. Clear skies and lots of sun can play tricks on cameras and tends to drown out color and detail of your photo subject.

The sun was definitely not my friend during my photo walk in Middleburg. While this photograph of the flowering plant-lined sidewalk along old Middleburg United Methodist Church is attractive, the sunshine dulled the impact of the bright green foliage and charm of the area in the image. Still learning how to "trick" the camera by adjusting its settings to counter this effect on sunny days. All challenges aside, it is still a pretty composition. Wouldn't you like your backyard or neighborhood to look like this?
