Photos of the Week {4}

I owe one week’s pictures for my photo of the week 2012 project

It’s not too often that our back yard calls me out to take a picture or two, but this afternoon the sun was casting some really nice cool light on the yard and on all of last week’s snow on the ground.  And the sky was blue, finally!

I was surprised at how the pictures came right out of the camera with such a deep blue sky.  I touched them up on the computer just a bit, but didn’t even saturate or darken the sky.  I loved the blue with the browns and reds in our maple tree.


Photo(s) of the Week {1}

The beginning of my Photo of the Week 2012 series.  Of all the goals I made for myself this New Year, I am most excited about this, and my knitting goals.  I decided that the Photo of the Week post will often be just one photo, but can be more than one.  The pictures have to be taken within the week of the post, Monday through Sunday, and I can’t pull out a photo from any other week.  I’ll be using manual mode and I will shoot for liking it enough straight out of the camera and not fixing it up on the computer much.  …Just to specify a little more. =)

This morning we enjoyed a nice relaxing walk with the dog, and my camera.  I had to really look around for some photos while we were out, as it’s been a rather gray dull day out with no sunshine and just dull flat light, and nothing really spectacular jumping out at me.  Good practice though, to get out and have to really do some looking.

Seeing Double… Rainbows

Last night we had an evening of the most gorgeous rainbows I’ve ever seen!  Actually saw two different ones, one on my drive home and another later at home… And they were each full size, and double 🙂
Someday soon I’m going to actually have a *good* camera, and get some real photos!  I was wishing I had a better camera last night.
Anyway, it was a beautiful view from our back patio.

Happy Friday!
