Good morning. We got a good rain soaking during the night, and it's still a bit damp outside. According to the weatherman, it will be like this until tomorrow. Well, as they say, it's good weather for the ducks. Sometimes I wonder if that really is true. Do ducks really like the rain?
Remember I told you about the pond I passed yesterday, and how beautiful the mist rising on it was? Well, I looked at my photos and was pleasantly surprised. I was standing on the roadside shooting through the branches of the trees and shrubs. This first shot shows the hazy mist rising on the pond.
This next photo is my favorite, and I'm thinking that I will have this one enlarged, printed and framed for my wall. There were two ducks and two geese in the pond, and the pinkish color is from the branches that I am shooting through.
Then, last night I decided to play a bit with my tele-converter that I had purchased a while back for my Tamron lens. Up to now, I've been busy and forgetting to take it with me to the park. I stood across the room and used my zoom to photograph a pill bottle on the counter. First with the tele-converter, then without it. I blurred out any thing that had names, etc on it for obvious reasons.
There was quite a nice difference, and the quality of the photo was good. So I guess I'll be packing this tele-converter with my camera and taking it to the park this week. I'm anxious to see how it works when photographing birds.
Now it's time to give Tootsie her meds, and then gather up those last few figures to be delivered to my tax accountant. After that, it's "breathe easy" time till next tax season. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
