Mourning Summer

0804mjsDear Friends, i am in mourning, i love summer and all the colors that our warm weather brings, now the fall is gone, winter and the blues of ice and snow are pending.  Christmas is coming so i am momentarily distracted by family activities and all that is good, but when the cold sets in and the temps reach the minus range, i hate going outside, but i force myself and bundle up my body to fight the cold, i can stay out until my camera freezes, then i am out of luck, so til Tomorrow MJ

Pasque Flowers in the Wind

Dear Friends, this group of pasque flowers (a wild crocus) was blowing in the strong winds of Crex Meadows.  I was experimenting with the multiple exposure setting on my camera, this was five exposures in a single frame and photoed as the wind moved the flowers around, I liked how the greenery was multiplied and emphasized the fuzziness of these plants.  til Tomorrow MJpasque multiple

More Experiments

01,WC185,DP,Crystal CaveDear Friends, this is a composite image resulting from 40 images taken with macro lens and a focus step approach, even at f16, the depth of focus was not sufficient to render all the details in this tiny group of green crystals, so i step focused with my Camranger and put the images together with photoshop, this tiny crystal cave is an area of about 1 square mm and the color of the rock around the crystal was a surprise, do you like? til Tomorrow MJ

A Web

Friends, this tiny spider is trying to spin a web in a thistle plant, a prickly job at best.  Maybe he will catch a honeybee, til tomorrow MJ
