I took more photos of flowers today. Now I have vases of flowers all over my house because I had to go out and buy them. I think it was worth it because I'm excited about how these turned out.

Today I began trying to photograph flowers against a black background. I used aperture-priority with a shallow depth of field. These tulips are the photo that I liked the best. Some of the others had focusing problems. But, I'll keep trying.

This is a photo of the church on Country Way in Scituate, Mass. a little after sunset. I'm still trying my hand at night-time photography. Practice, practice, practice -- that's what they say!

WORLD'S END TREE
The photo for the pastel painting of this tree was taken at World's End in Hingham, MA just after sunrise. The backlighting was beautiful, and I loved the colors in the trees in the background. I'll have to arise very early more often. The lighting is fantastic for photography.

Here are two recent paintings done from night-time photos. The waterfall is called "Ruth's Waterfall". It is in my sister-in-law's back yard. She and her husband are avid waterfall hikers and finally got to have their own.

UPPER CABIN AT DUSK
I've been practicing taking night-time photos. This is the upper cabin at our property in Wayland, NY. I used a tripod and about a 30 second exposure on f/16, I think. I'll have to get more serious about the statistics now that I'm taking this more seriously.
