I got a new camera a couple of days ago... not a totally fancy schmancy one, but a big upgrade for me. This morning I woke to a Hoar Frost and Fog Morning.... So decided it was the day to try it out. So instead of one picture today, you are getting ten of my experiments today! (At least I am limiting it to ten.)
It was a warm and balmy 24 degrees F today; much nicer the the same temp, with a minus in front of it, that we have been having. But it still took me a bowl of soup and a cup of coffee to get warmed up!
This is just how soft and serene the day was.
Had to stop for a coffee, and try out the new BW settings and several focal length experiments.
I was really pleased with how the camera caught all the subtle colors in this - and how I composed it. .
Queen Anne's lace is beautiful during the summer, but is pretty good at capturing frost, too.
These guys (girls?) were a good 50 yards from me, so a chance to try out the zooooooooooooom!
It has been great watching this nest since the leaves have fallen.
This bittersweet gave me a great chance to try "Super Macro"
This is looking into a barn from about 20 feet away, and still it did a great job with the lighting.
