In the Dead of Winter

I was surprised by the amount of lingering green I spotted while I was out for a walk over the weekend. I was happy to be out in the sunshine, as the prior week's rain and constant cloud cover rendered the landscape a dull, grey, depressing wasteland.

Cornucopia
While I don't make "resolutions" in the new year, I recognized my photography has been experiencing a lull - specifically, the use of my DSLR has been almost non-existent. So, I took off for a walk with the big camera slung over my shoulder and chose not to take any iPhone photos. The sun-tinged glimmer of frost on the green down at my feet caused my pause.

Listen To Your Heart
I'm using a lens that hasn't seen much action in the past year. I was having issue with the focus until I realized the wide open aperture of f2.8 may have been overkill. Two stops higher at f3.5 appears to give me a wider focus plane that works with the dead stuff on the ground.

Laid Down
My goal - to get out more with my camera, slow down and actively create something new.

Good goals, Shirley. I like your photos whether they are with the phone or the big gal camera. You have the "eye."

These are wonderful, Shirley!
I tend to use my iPhone more in the winter/bad weather, and although it has been quite cold here this week, I took out my "big girl" for a while. Felt mighty nice!

Happy New Year to you!

These are lovely! I love the soft green tones with the white frost. I'm so glad to have you back this week!

I have been using my iPhone a lot lately but nothing beats my big camera...its just big. It was a bit green here too this fall and it has carried into the winter. Nice and appreciated contrast!

I love the way the frost is clinging to the leaves. The focus is pin sharp. Enjoy your camera Barbara
