April 2016

Spring finally sprung; the semester is ending, exams are coming, but nature is too photogenic to stay inside! I’m thrilled to have so many different types of pictures this month. Enjoy!

1
Goats came to UNCC for an afternoon! (Apr. 8)
2
I never knew goats could have two different colored horns…
3
This little guy was PRECIOUS! (lightly edited)

I decided to take a road trip with myself to King’s Mountain! The National Military Park is gorgeous; the main walking trail takes no more than an hour and is full of amazing views. taken with my iPhone (Apr. 20)
4
I visited my cousin at UNCW, and we visited this guy, Archie, at Airlie Gardens on Earth Day. He, apparently, was not a fan of the osprey flying above us. (Apr. 22)
5
The man in charge of Archie told me that owls have three eyelids on each eye, and they’re transparent. I captured one of its eyelids blinking; freaky, right?
6
One of the many gorgeous points on the Airlie Gardens property!
7
Architecture (of all majors) taught me how important composition can be in a photograph. Thanks, Swisher.

I’ve learned how wonderful a well-framed shot can be.
11
The view from the Pergola.
12
Find the turtle!
13
We visited Margaritaville and Ripley’s Aquarium in Myrtle Beach! Animals are much more interesting to photograph than tourists in a restaurant, though.(Apr. 23)
14
I had to sharpen this in Photoshop a little bit, but I finally got a decent picture of whatever this little critter is.
15
The welcoming committee was subpar. (lightly edited)
16
Even though this picture is so dim, I decided not to brighten it in order to reflect how elusive a shark can be. You can still see its full form if you look close enough…
17
I still can’t believe this isn’t edited; the colors are beautiful!
18
My Photoshop sharpening of this picture made it look grainy, but I like the vintage look; it fits somehow.
19
If anyone’s remaking Jaws, call me for a movie poster photo.
20
Ever heard of a sunlight full of manta rays?
21
I learned a trick from Phlearn.com on how to create more contrast and definition, and it saved this photo!
22
These are baby jellyfish– they’re TINY!
23
Here’s an adult jellyfish, being majestic as always.
24
The lighting hit this jellyfish so perfectly that it looks like some type of planet.
