Pink Zinnia

Such rich, beautiful color!  Photo taken at the Dallas Arboretum.  No tripod.  No color correction.  Just a steady hand and lots of practice!  I figured I have posted lots of bugs and creepy crawlies that I should balance the blog with a pretty pink flower.  Enjoy.  This won’t last.  I have great photos of creepy things coming soon.

Miniatures and Mushrooms

There’s an area at the LBJ National Grasslands that my friend and I have named “Pretty Pond.”   Aside from the pond, there are pine trees.  Pine needles carpet the ground making a soft surface to walk on.  Or in my case, lie on, to photograph this mushroom with miniatures. This is how stuffed mushrooms are prepared.  😉 Date:  July 8, 2017 Location:  LBJ National Grasslands Camera:  Rockalita Sunshine (Canon EOS 5D Mark IV) Lens:  My beloved 100 mm macro lens (Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 L macro IS) Continue reading Miniatures and Mushrooms
