I’m getting ready for a trip to Florida and decided to look through my images from my last trip to Walt Disney World. Plenty of images to process. My favorites have already been posted (considering last trip was two years ago), but I did find this one.
It was late at Epcot and I was on my way back to the resort. I stopped for a look at the Morocco Pavilion from the International Gateway. I can’t resist a good reflection and the pavilion is a favorite of mine. I didn’t get one of the tripod legs completely locked. During the 4 second exposure the camera started to fall over. I caught it but not before this image was captured.
I love the architecture and details in the Morocco Pavilion at Epcot. It is one of my favorite areas to photograph. I especially like this view across the water from the viewing area near the International Gateway. I always consider it a bonus when I manage to capture one of the Friendship boats as well… 🙂
At one point yesterday I looked out the window at work and saw blue skies, puffy white clouds and the sun. That all changed about an hour before I left work. We got snow! Not a lot, only 4 – 6 inches but enough to change my plans… no sunset photography. Now the snow I’m OK with but these single digit temperatures hurt. It is supposed to be clear skies this morning, maybe I’ll brave the four-degree temps and search out the sunrise… maybe… 🙂
My Lightroom catalog was still on the Disney folder when I opened the program. Yeah, a warm looking sunrise image would help take my mind off the current temperature. Most images of the Tree of Life at the Animal Kingdom are from the “front”, if a tree can have a front or back. There is generally a long line of people waiting to grab the iconic image (Tree of Life Morning), but I prefer the opposite view. Probably due to my preference for a good reflection.
Other than a moment of sun a couple of days ago we have had only grey skies lately. I saw a message pop up in one of my streams that Disney has released the dates for the 2022 International Flower & Garden Festival. As much as I am still conflicted regarding Disney, I do love going down for that festival. All this had me searching my images from my trip last year.
This is from the morning of my last day at the resort. The sun was barely breaking the tops of the trees so you can see the orange skies starting to move in from the right. I love the small reflections in the water on the boardwalk. Overall, it was a quiet, peaceful morning before the madness of traveling back home. I need to schedule this year’s trip…
