Garden Break

July 25, 2012

I’m enjoying some “down” time this week and have granted harvest rights to friends and family in return for checking in on the fat kitteh who remained behind.

Will my garden look like it has been ravaged by locusts when I return? 😉

The Nikon came with me and I’ve spent time trying to to become minimally proficient in some of its capabilities beyond basic garden photos.

A gigabyte of trial shots later and I have a few that were interesting enough to post; the lightning pictures turned out “OK” but slightly out of focus as my guesstimation of the manual focus setting was a near miss. (Note to self: check the focus on a distant light before setting the camera on a tripod pointed out towards the darkness of the Atlantic in a thunderstorm. )

      Use the “bulb” setting for lightning, it allows you to hold open the shutter as long as you wish
