With all of the cold we have been having…I think it is beach time! I took this last week while in Cabo. 80 Degrees and sunny! Beats the -15 (with wind chills) we had here this morning. I will take sand over snow anytime!
WK 3: Depth of Field: Walking. I seem to always go for an aperature that is wide open when shooting wild life…I think the blur makes the subject stand out. I took this at our zoo and the large aperature also hid the humidity on the aquarium. This little dart frog walked slowly right in in the center of the aquarium and them JUMP and he was gone. These little dart frogs are a challenge to get a good picture of.
It’s been so cold that I have had a lot of action at the feeders! Thank goodness since I really don’t want to eave the house….except for work.
Week 2 Depth of Field: Circle I shot this with a bit smaller aperture so that the stingray is in focus but you can still make out the background. This week was the first time I have been at the zoo since early summer when I blew my knee out. Felt good to be out with the camera walking! 🙂
Week 1 Depth of Field: Alone and Great. This lonely squirrel did a great balancing act to try to con me out of more peanuts! It has been cold so my feeders are always a source of entertainment from the indoors! I shot this with a shallow depth so that the squirrel would stand out from all of the bare branches behind him (and also so you did not notice my dirty windows).
So 2017 slipped away from me. Figured I would try again with a few challenges and whatever else catches my eyes. It was 44 below 0 (with wind chills) last night and the night before in Omaha, NE. So outdoors was the last place I wanted to be. So I shot this blue jays from the indoors, but the jay was outdoors. I think he is praying to the weather gods for warmer temps!
