Macro Moments – Week 5 – Flowers and Plants
Here is my entry for the week – hydrangeas with a bonus bug. I used the 100 mm lens, hand held, ISO 100 f/9 and 1/160 second. This was taken in the morning so it was fairly bright outside.
Weekly Photo Challenge – Focus on the Details
Macro Moments – Week 4 – Rosie
This is Rosie (aka Rosebud). She is 15 and I know her time is limited since 15 is kinda old for a dog. She is a sweet loyal dog who follows me everywhere. For this photo I got down on the floor at her level for a more intimate portrait. I used a Canon 7D with the 100 macro, ISO 400, f5.6 and 1/80. Editing was in LR.
Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Topic – Signs
This was taken in March at Boquerón Beach in Puerto Rico. The colors of the water are pretty much straight out of camera.
Brown Thrasher Family
Our backyard has been quite busy with birds this spring and summer. In May, we were lucky enough to see Mama Thrasher and her new little family.
Weekly Photo Challenge – Topic – Look Up
This was taken on our recent visit to Puerto Rico this year. I posted a sepia version a couple of months ago so here’s the color version.
Macro Moments – Week 3
I have to thank Cee Neuner for finding this weekly challenge and telling us all about it. I love to take macro photos. If you are interested – you can check out Musin with Susan for the information. I took this picture from a bouquet of flowers I received in January. I used a Canon 6D with the 100mm macro lens – ISO800, f/2.8, 1/125 and editing in Lightroom. I am not a tripod kind of gal (I know I should be better about this) – so this one was hand held.
Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Topic – Bridges
For this topic – I choose the Bonner Bridge which links the Northern Outer Banks of North Carolina with Hatteras Island. When we go to the OBX and cross this bridge – I feel a peace come over me because the beaches on Hatteras restore my soul. They are so beautiful. Here is a link to more info about the bridge if interested
