December Sunset

The sky was like a watercolor painting, with soft hues and colors. The clouds were sparse, but lovely. They looked a bit like popcorn in places. As the bright orange sun set, the colors and drama deepened. These were taken at Herrick Lake Forest Preserve.

Redbud Petals on my Garden Path

Redbuds on my garden path
Drop petals on the ground
The beauty, color of them all
Makes joy in my heart abound!

The pretty red/magenta color is scattered all over my garden path today. I loved seeing the magenta along side the spring green trillium!

Spring 2019 – a Quick Look

I’ve been sick with bronchitis the last few weeks. As such, I’ve watched spring blossom from indoors, not getting many images. But I have gotten a few. I’m trying a new editing method. These images have a slightly different look than Spring flowers in past years.

First of Spring

The snow of the cold winter is gone and the ground is thawing. Spring is beginning to emerge! With it comes a new camera – a mirrorless Sony a7 IIIr, which has the features of my Nikon D800. But it weighs a fraction of the 10-15 pounds I’ve been carrying. While these aren’t stellar images, they are a result of learning. The Sony menus are very different and I have a ways to go to find the settings that work for me. Enjoy Spring as it bursts forth!
