Its a bit Fishy!

Sometimes when its just to ugly out to try and find something bright and cheerful to shoot, take a visit to one of the Aquariums and see what you can capture.  Last summer I  in the hot summer to visit the Tulsa Aquarium.  I used a couple different lenses to try for a good shot.  This Lion Fish was really co-operative and was shot using a little Canon Reble Xti.

Is It Spring Yet?

I am just dying for some color.  The winter months are so colorless and bland in SE Oklahoma .   I shot this photo with my macro lense and played around in photoshop to give it that ethreal look.   As I recall these flowers were very abundant and I didn't give them much consideration at the time but now I would really enjoy a handfull of them at my back porch.

The Beauty of DeadHeads

Its been a really cold winter for many of us and makes it hard to find anything exciting to photograph.  After all the color of the flower gardens have gone I get "un-inspired", but if I look close there are wonderful opportunities to take advantage of even in the cold frosts. 

Some of the things that I often am drawn to are the dead heads and seed pods that are still intact.  The way the petals wither and collect the frost and twinkle in the first light make them come to life again.

This particular DeadHead looks like its so fragile that it would shatter at the first touch, but now it will live forever as a digital image.
