Capturing Life's Fleeting Moments…

At The Park Today April 15, 2008

I stopped at the park for a little while on the way home today to capture the most beautiful day with a beautiful sky…full of amazing clouds!

I started with some HDR shots with my Nikon 18-200mm VR.

When I was here I felt like I was walking through a Fairy Tale!

And then I switched to my Nikon 105mm f/2.8 AF-S Micro Lens to give it a run for it’s money!

I’m trying to get the hang of shooting REALLY close with the lens to get that really abstract-y look for flower photography.

The hardest part was focusing on the flowers when the wind kept blowing (Grrrrrrrrr!) AND I was using a tripod! So many were sent to the recycle bin when I got home but these were the ones that I kept that I loved!!

The ones that appealed to me most today were the very abstract flower shots below. I just feel like they would make great abstract art pieces to hang on the wall.

A little more realistic macros for you:

What a beautiful day to be out and about! I need to go back though and keep practiing and practicing these abstract macros. The focus is the hardest part!

    Great job on those macros!!! I also love the ones with the gazebo! Great stuff!!

    You know, that macro abstract art could be a selling item on your website. I would keep developing that idea. They look great!!

    What a gorgeous park! I love the 1st photo in the park series. It’s dreamy!!!

    Out of your macro shots 1, 5 & 6 appeal to me the most-especially 5. I would buy 5 in a heartbeat and I don’t have anything around the house with that color! 🙂
