Tulips And A Stray Magnolia

The last week has been some what of a challenge. Getting a chance to shoot has been as well but I have a very good friend with a wonderful garden I know I can access. My wife and I enjoy it and the quite it brings. It is open anytime I need a space to breath in.The Tulips are from her garden and the Magnolia Bush from a drive by shoot I did after a storm passed midweek. The storm left the petals battered but still standing. Enjoy!

Early Spring Equals……..

Shot with my Nikon Coolpix 4600. Trying a "shooting into the sun" experiment.
Shot in low light a round of rain showers left behind some light inhibiting clouds. Shot with my Canon PowerShot S3is.
Shot at the lake with my Canon PowerShot S3is.

…….more time to shot outdoors right? Well maybe not if I have to factor in the list of spring chores and unfinished projects. So I am grabbing the photo opportunities as they come. Here are several I have taken in the last week. Enjoy!

At The Lake

I stopped by our local lake and took several pictures with my sister-in-laws Nikon D40 and my Canon PowerShot S3is.Here are two from the Nikon.Enjoy!
