Through My Lens

7 – After the Thunder Storm

Posted in Flora by lwroffee on July 23, 2009

We had a few, much needed, thunder storms today.  The afternoon sun peaked out for a while, and I went out with the 30D and a wide angle lens.  Sun and leave and trees are always pretty.  I wish the sky had been a deeper blue, but another storm was approaching.  And, there is now more thunder near so I had better shut this computer down.  I don’t trust the trusty surge protector.

5 – Peaking Through the Trees at Some Color

A splash of color through the tree branches.  I would have preferred a better angle with a clear fore ground, but……..you take what you can get.  This was in our neighborhood late in the evening.  I had the 100-400 mm lens on the 5D.  I have concluded that I need to use at least a monopod when using that lens.  One just cannot take a sharp photo at 400 mm hand held.
