Lily's Art Work

We spent Thanksgiving with our daughter and her family. Our beautiful granddaughter Lily created a piece of artwork, a Thanksgiving card she put her heart into creating. Her card is so beautiful I am going to frame.

How many of you have refrigerator artwork displayed?

Testing Canon's Point And Shoot PowerShot G11

I purchased Canon PowerShot G11, allowing me to  have a smaller camera with me at all times.  I am sure you have experienced the regret not having a camera with you!!!

The PowerShot G11 is an advanced point and shoot, the newer model G12 had HD for video which I would probably not use, so I opted for G11, cheaper price.

Let me know what you think of my pictures I shot with the point and shoot.

I tested the camera walking the golf course during the magic hour.

Sunrise at Portland Headlight, Maine

One of my Meet Up groups met sunrise at Fort Williams Park, Cape Elizabeth, ME.

I played with my settings, a wonderful opportunity to learn. I also realized how much I love capturing the light when taking photos, one my favorite parts of photography.

Discovered a Small Grove of Tamarack Conifer Trees

My previous post MyDayMyInterestsPhotoblog: Have You Ever Heard Of Tamarack Trees? I explained how my friend Brad educated me about the Tamarack trees.

On the way to Concord two days ago, I found a small grove of the Tamarack trees, scenic looking shots but as luck will have it no camera in hand. I returned yesterday, the same time day for the great lighting I viewed the day before of the grove.

Blue Hue Mountains, New Hampshire

Bob and I went our Saturday drive. Fall foliage is gone, I really was not expecting to fine anything to photograph. I mentioned to Bob this time of year, morning mist, magic hour, sunrises or sunset, non-existent wildlife, might be the only interesting photography I will find until the snow falls.

I was wrong!!! I notice in the distance a range of mountains viewed from Route 175, Campton, Woodstock, North Woodstock had a blue tinge. We drove around looking for a spot for me to take photos of the blue toned mountains.

I posted a photo on Facebook and question what causes this event...surrounding mountains did not have this hue. I have mentioned before, an added enrichment to my photography, the research and learning about photos I take.

I received two reply's from two very talented photographers:

Jim Salge Short answer...diffraction...

Nigel Peter Benson Kent It's UV light Betty...casts blue on distant scenes. Some filters can reduce that...ever try a UV filter? Sometimes the blue cast is from UV, other times it's from moisture haze...sometimes it's from the simple fact that the camera is a long way from the scene and no filter will cut to the true colors. I like blue thumbs up!

November Morning Frost

I woke up and opening the blinds, I noticed everything was covered in frost crystals.  The view was too tempting, I grabbed my camera and headed outdoors.
