Sunday Stills ~ Focusing on the Foreground

I often find myself focusing on the foreground while on the road shooting landscape, however looking specifically for this type of shot was challenging. I tried several views, and learned you really need to be out in an expansive natural setting for this type of shot to work well. With this in mind, I did manage to get one new shot that fit's the challenge:

Below is a foreground archive photo, from the same location taken in August. It didn't make it into my Potluck Challenge, which includes a couple additional foreground photos.

These are both gorgeous captures, especially with this challenge in mind. The second one with the reflection in the water is stunning!

I agree, out in nature seems to lend itself to this challenge. I like both of them but the colors in the last one are just lovely and soothing!

If the first shot is charming, the second is delighting!
