This is a photo I did not take, obviously. I plan to buy a remote shutter release for my camera, but so far I have not done so. My face is gone, but I still like this photo.

Exposure time: 1/125 s
Aperture: f/7.1
ISO: 400

Saw a more elaborate photo with similar framing of "reflection in puddle." Wanted to imitate. My reluctant subject obliged:)

I had just put my camera away and continued on my way toward my car when I passed these lovely little tree blossoms. This was the same tree I had photographed here in the fall.

Aperture: f/5.6

A springtime daffodil! I wasn't entirely pleased with the daffodil photos, because to get a shot straight-on, the flower ended up in the shadow of my camera (thanks a lot, golden hour!). I liked this one though, because the bug is in focus (although tiny).

Exposure time: 1/1600 s
Aperture: f/5.6

And another close-up. Not washed out this time. Also pointing toward the ground instead of toward the sky, to give a nice brown background! In this photo I was trying to pick up the little bits of pink at the base of the petals.

Exposure time: 1/1600 s
Aperture: f/5.6

This is my new computer desktop background. I really like the pale colors (aka washed-out colors) of this photo. Yay springtime!

Exposure time: 1/800 s
Aperture: f/5.6
ISO: 800

Maybe I should teach myself the importance of sometimes changing the ISO?
