Daffodils Through An Old Lens

Today I had about an hour to play with in between varies chores and social obligations. I grabbed my D60 and an old Nikon 35mm film camera lens and set off to get some snaps in. I do not know about all cameras but when you mate a manual film camera lens with a modern DSLR the light metering can be less than optimum. So I snagged an app for my iPod that came in very handy today. The first photo is an unedited but slightly cropped shot from today. The second is what the app looks like on my iPod. I will try it out with my extension tubes as I shot macro later this Spring.

Spring, Is That Really You?

The temperatures here, since Springs official arrival, have been staying in the high thirties to low forties during the day. The low twenties are not uncommon at night. Though they have dipped into the teens a time or two just for good measure. As mentioned before the Sun has spent very little time in my corner of the world this winter. It has been the same this Spring as well but today must have been worthy of its presence. I for one am glad.

Here is a few photos from the Hill I took before the Sun went about its daily, or nightly, rounds. Enjoy!
