{A Walk in the Park}

Yesterday, the hubs and I went to the park to run (actually, he runs and I walk). Since I now seem to be obsessed with my camera, it went with me (that sucker is heavy!). Now, remember back to Monday’s post when I talked about shooting in manual mode? Well, I used manual here too……….and learned an important lesson. You must check your ISO before shooting or your pics will come out overexposed (I had it set at 2000! Mental note: Always pay attention to the details)! Any who, some of the pics turned out ok but I ended up having to do a little bit of editing.

When I started my walk, it was pretty sunny. I love this first shot of the sun coming through the tree. Love the starburst affect that I managed to get!

Then it got cloudy.

When I got home, I went out into our field and snapped some pics of the Indian Paint Brushes before they got mowed down. They come up every year and I love the color it adds to our landscape but unfortunately, they are considered weeds so they get mowed down.  :(

Ok, so that’s my little show & tell. Have any questions, tips, suggestions? I’d love to hear from you so leave me a comment or shoot me an email!
