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!

There Are Daffodils On The Hill

Today was a wonderfully sunny day but I have been inside most of the day with a sinus headache. After taking a short three or so hour nap, I awoke with just enough energy to snap a few shots of the Daffodils blooming on the hill across from our place. Spring is coming because there are Daffodils on the hill!

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!
