This was taken the same day as the previous post, and again with my new lens. Saw this group of Mallards resting new a lake in the city that I live. Not sure if these two are actually a couple, more than likely they are.
Been a while since I posted, but wanted to post something newer than January. So I actually got off my butt and and got out a few weeks ago. Most of the trees and plants were somewhere between just starting to come out and already done. As the time of the day was mid afternoon I choose to look for compositions that either were side or backlit.
So last week, or maybe the week before, I decided to just use a prime lens and see what I could get. Since I only own one prime lens the choice was easy. I wish finding a subject was that easy though. I believe I took 47 photographs, and, at least for now, I think this was the best of them. It was at then end of my walk and this set of leaves caught my eye. I opened the lens to the maximum aperture to achieve the low depth of field, and cropped the final edit to a square. I reduced the saturation around the leaves to bring the out a little.
Another photograph from October. With the fog and dew, there were a lot of opportunities to capture the numerous spiderwebs. I like the way this web just surrounds the plant.
Took a walk on the path behind the development that I live in 2 weeks ago looking for something to photograph. Took a few photographs of some of the remaining flowers in the area. This one caught my eye because of its bright color and size.
Quick photograph from last Sunday. Took an early walk along the path near my home. Saw these daisies and thought they may make a nice composition.
Took this photograph on 13 March, while walking on the path behind where I live. I was looking for Spring colors and there were a lot of these yellow flowers along the river. Probably could have brought down the exposure a little as I did blow out the highlights on the flower petals.
Something a little different. Visited Monticello recently and there were lots of these yellow butterflies. So decided to take a few pictures of them.
