Spring Arrivals

This pretty little crocus and the warm weather this week has marked the arrival of spring for me. It seemed to be a long time coming this year. I’m glad it’s finally here.

Warm Hearts

More snow and cold weather outside today, so I thought I’d post something warm and cheerful. This rose was one of a dozen given to my wife from my little boy.

Photo details: Nikon D80, Tamron 90mm macro, f/8.0, 1/80 sec. shutter, 400 ISO, in manual mode. I shot this in the studio with a single softbox about one foot away from the rose. I was lazy and shot it hand-held instead of using a tripod.

Lone Daffodil

This little lone Daffodil is the first flower (growing outside) that I’ve seen so far in 2009. Spring is finally upon us… and I’m ready for it!

Winter Color

It’s hard to find any outdoor color this time of year, but thanks to this little Nandina bush I was able to capture some vivid red colors blanketed with some fresh snow.

Photo details: Nikon D80, Tamron 90mm macro, f/4.0, 1/640 sec. shutter, 200 ISO, in aperture priority mode.
