Fall On Deer Isle–9.26.2017

 

I got off early from work today (whoohoo) so instead of going to the gym (inside) I went hiking (outside) because it’s the last week of Sept and it was almost 80!

The colors are starting to come in here, down state – I love orange leaves…..

Everyone is going to think I’ve a thing for mushrooms, I don’t – however!  they are great to start learning the macro settings on my camera on

Moss – really, gorgeous!

Weekend–AM to PM 9.23.2017

My childhood friend, Melissa, aka Mac, came to the Island this weekend.  She too, has a lovely Canon Rebel and we spent all of Saturday running around taking pictures – here are mine

The village of Stonington, Maine is just – well – breathtaking

Playing with the macro attachments!

Perspective!  AKA Belly time!

I dragged Mac over to Barred Island and we spent some fun time tripping over roots and checking out shadows and light

Macro!  I never realized how pretty moss was.

I started playing with my F settings and exposure – a few of my photos were “washed” out – however, I was able to recover much of it with my photo editor.

I saw this mushroom – and instantly I thought of the Smurfs – then I get up and Mac said the same thing.  It’s amazing how sometimes we think alike!

To end the day (Before food that is!) we hit up Sand Beach – tide was still high – but it was still a breathtaking sight to see. 

Macro–9.20.2017

I purchased a set of Macro lens – so now I am looking at the world in a whole new way – mostly down on my belly or kneeling in the muck taking pics Smile

I found this little guy crawling around on my porch last week.  Oh so very slowly.

I have 4 different lenses – x10, x4, x2 and x1 – Autofocus is close to useless while using 10 – I can also stack them for more magnifications

I’m a “fan” of the whole focus/blur – so I use the P setting often – one thing off to the side, with the blur washing out to one side.

Beauty Everywhere…

There is beauty in everything – in every fleck of rust, in every curve of a bottle, in every color of glass, in every line of a table, in the way the light shafts of the angle of a door knob…. There is beauty everywhere….
