Early Spring 2017

Early Spring 2017_edited-1_wm

I took this image on April 14th this spring from inside the house as it was to cool for me to go out.  I’m afraid it’s not as well focused as any of us would like  – particularly the Flowering Crab.  I worked with it a bit in Photoshop Elements 6 but was unable to improve it beyond what you see here.  Anyway, it was early morning light and the Flowering Crabs flower’s are a crimson red. On the left is a Lilac Bush which, at the time, had not blomed.

My wife has a green thumb as you can see.  For your info …  I shot this with my Canon 75-300 Zoom Lens – and my Canon T3 set on Landscape. I don’t have a Macro lens so this works for me when shooting more than one subject.  Of course my camera has a Macro setting but I like the long lense.  This shot is hand held!  Just my way to have fun.

Clematis Bulbs in Bloom

The other day I showed these Blooms about to open … well, they opened.  At least a good many of them.  Removing Muffin’s water bowl would have made the image to small – in my opinion.
