Bunny Begonia

DSC_0158_edited-1Glorious day! The look on this little fella’s face personified exactly how I was feeling after completely overhauling my garden. Face slightly tilted, eyes closed, soaking up the beautiful sunshine. Captured with a Nikon D5600 with 18-55 mm lens and standard UV filter with tulip hood. The exposure and composition are probably all wrong, but I don’t care. I couldn’t resist!

Anniversary Rose

DSC_0008

Celebrating 20 years together. One of the beautiful roses in the bouquet.

This was captured using our new Nikon D5600 DSLR with a standard UV filter and macro +2 lens. I didn’t add any enhancements simply because I wanted a raw photo – as is – to get used to the camera. I love the details in the petals as well as the imperfections.

Lake Barkley fisherman

Captured with my iPhone on an early morning walk through the campground. This isn’t a very good picture, but it was all I had at the moment. It was just so peaceful that morning. Nothing but a few gurgles from the shore and an occasional locust off in the distance.

Eye Popping

Captured with an old point-and-shoot, but I still love the vibrant contrasts. I don’t remember where this was taken, but I felt lucky with the shot – the blur of the background and front edge versus the crispness of the center and outer petals.
