  • Animal Kingdom Pics 4/22/07

    Howdy again and Happy Earth Day! It is also the 9th anniversary of the opening of Disney's Animal Kingdom.

    At the request of a fellow MC'er I went to Disney's Animal Kingdom to take a few pictures of the Tree of Life. Unfortunately lighting conditions were miserable. I mean really miserable. So, I am posting a few of the better pics, but I need to go back on a cloudy day.

    These are clickable thumbnails.






















    There are actually tons of birds flying around in this area. I did not bring a zoom lens, so I don't really have any good shots of the birds. I am posting this because I was trying to use a long exposure to make the waterfall look like it does. This is as good as I could get without a tripod.




    Gorillas rock!




    This is Florida? Good job Imagineers!




    Someone needs to call the Orkin man, stat.




    A baby giraffe. Let's all say awwwwww.

    Awwwww. Okay, that's enough.


    Next year's luggage.




    How do you stop a rhino from charging?

    Steal it's identity and go on a shopping spree.



    Pretty purple prickly plant.

    Fight alliteracy! No, not aliteracy, alliteracy.



    Timon! And Timon. And another Timon. And so on.




    What are YOU looking at?




    It looks like I was not the only one who did not shave this morning.




    If they can do it, why can't we?




    Another pastel whatchamacalit.




    Well, I am at home now doing laundry. My plan is to go to the Magic Kingdom tonight and take some more shots of Wishes. I will post those on Monday or Tuesday.

      Yay for AK pics. It's my favorite park at WDW. Very appropriate for Earth Day indeed. :thumbup:

      And I love the waterfall photo! The long exposure setting worked out well.

            The pictures are lovely and a great way to celebrate DAK's anniversary... but Earth Day? This is the park that took an entire echosystem out WDW's property in order to be built. I would hardly call DAK a good example for Earth Day.

              Are you looking for flat lighting? I am enjoying all of your pictures. My favorite here is the purple flower.

                Yes. I took many pics today, yet because of the harsh lighting and shadows, I think the pics don't look as good as they should.

                Here are some examples.

                The first pic is a repost. Most of the image is properly exposed, yet there are strong shadows in the middle. If a medium sized cloud had blocked the sun, the shadow would have been lessened.



                In this pic, most of the image is exposed OK, but the color of the birds is washed out.


                And this is harsh lighting and shadows again.



                Oh, and thanks to everyone for the feedback and compliments. My ego really thanks you.

                I am going to the POTC premiere in May so I am going to have a massive post after that is over.

                      I agree with you. I tell my Dad he can only take my picture in the early morning or at dusk. ) The POTC premiere is going to be sweet! Lucky you!

                        Great photos! It was a beautiful day. We were there until about 2 and then we went over to MGM. You got to see the rhino much better than we did.
