My first time taking nature shots and this is my favorite so far! I took this shot at the State House in Columbia, South Carolina last Summer. It was a beautiful warm day, and I had nothing to do. I took a public bus into town and walked the city (literally). I covered more than 20 blocks of downtown Columbia. Long story short I ended up at the State House, and boy was I happy! I would say out of 100 shots, about 20 of them turned out to be perfect just like this one! I played with my new camera, learned a lot about different settings, and tried my hand at nature photography. Looks like I’m hooked! I’ll post more later!
