Recent Pictures

Here are a few pictures that I have taken recently. A few are from today. It was really nice out and cloudy, but the sun would peek through and that made awsome light!!

This one was from today. I really like the colors, I used an 18-55mm lens with an Ultra Violet (UV) filter, I usually leave this filter on to protect the lens.

This one is the same as above, I like how the sun is shining through the petals of the flowers, also how there is one big and one small flower. Also the dark green with the yellow.

These sunflowers also had the 18-55mm and UV filter. They were about twice as tall as me! I like how the top right corner is lighter blue and then gets darker, also the different shades of green, and how the flowers are in a u shape.
This is a red zinnia that I planted. I like how there is only blur in the background, and the angle of the flower, kind of flat, and the long stem.

This one I tried one side of the flower with the petals sticking out for the rest of the picture, I also like the clouds and bluesky.

These were as tall as me so I had to get down really low. I took several and this is the one I liked best. I wasn't even looking through the camera when I took it because the camera was only about 3 inches off the ground!

Also some more zinnias, the orange in the background was merigolds. I like how the stem kind of leans one way, plus the other flowers in the background.

These are yellow Honey Locust leaves that fell off the tree in our driveway. I like how the edge of the picture is dark and the bright yellow, plus the dark green.

Another purple zinnia. I took this one from above, I didn't center it on purpose because I thought it looked better this way. I usually do a lot of experimenting when I take pictures.
Another sunflower, it is the season for them if you couldn't tell!!! I liked the bee on it and the pale yellow by the dark brown.

This is a tree frog on a red zinnia that my mom noticed one night. He hasn't been back since that one night when I took this picture. I thought he looked awfully cute resting on the petals!!

This is an asparagus fern with a red berry on it. I liked the red berry with the green around it. Sort of reminds you of Christmas!

A Couple More From 2006

This picture was taken on our farm "up north" while we were checking cows. I am not sure what kind of bug it is but I thought it looked interesting! All of these pictures were taken in 2006.
This sunset was taken at my Grandmas. That is her barn in the picture. I liked how the sun was shining through the tree and the shape of the tree and the colors all played into this picture, plus the barn adds to it!

This is an old dead tree that is on our "north farm" too. I liked how the grass was brownish, plus the big open sky behind the tree. The tree fell down this spring, probably from a storm.

A Few of My First Pictures

Here are a couple of pictures I took with my Nikon Coolpix 4800 digital camera. They were both taken in 2006 during the summer.

The yellow flower was blooming along the fence in our pasture. I wanted the flower to be close and the center off a little, luckily I got the camera to focus on the center of the flower and leave the petal closer to the camera a little fuzzy.

This picture is one I took at my Grandmas in 2006. The shed is an old chicken house. I hid a little of the sun with the pine tree, and it turned out pretty good!
P.s. The picture at the top of the page was taken in early spring of 2008. They are cherry blossoms on a tree in our yard.
