28.04.10 - Kaleidoscope   When I walk into town I try to plan my route around photo opportunities, indeed I do the same if I drive in too. But this afternoon I was on foot, and on the way home I took a detour through the Arboretum to see what was new. As it happened there were plenty of new flowers in bloom, which gave me the opportunity to grovel around on my stomach to see what outrageous bokeh I could manage to get!   Apologies for any burned out retinas that might be caused by this riot of colour.

I waited for 6 months for the sun to go down in the midle of the road. Fortunately it did not rain that day. I brought a boy with me to wave good night to the sun.  Suddenly I saw the birds comming from the left, and got them in "the decive moment".
Hummingbird - I am a bit ambivalent about this shot because the hummer's iridescence is just SOOO high voltage, but I decided that maybe it was worth featuring as a daily.  This is best viewed in the largest sizes.  Quite a lot of you are wondering about the shutter speed.  It is 1/1600 sec.  I've found I can usually freeze hummers at about 1/1200 sec. or faster.  I bumped the speed up on this day because it was exceptionally bright and sunny!  Thanks to all of you who commented on my shot of the white cactus flower.  Much of the snow melted today, although it kept on snowing until about 11 a.m.  The wedding shoot went well, I think, although I've not yet looked closely at the images.  They'll keep me busy processing for several weeks.  Hope every has a chance to get outside and enjoy nicer weather today!

11/05/09 - Historic Yates Mill Pond at Sunset  I posted a picture of the actual water wheel in my gallery earlier this year.  In this picture, you can't see the wheel, but you get this lovely reflection instead.  After Joey's flu shot, I decided to make the best of a wonderful afternoon and go for a quick hike around the mill pond.  Unfortunately, we were really there a good 30-60 minutes too late to be taking good pictures.  I had to bump up the saturation on this one to improve the color.      This is the same shot taken on 10/26 last year when the sun was better and the tree closest to the mill still had yellow leaves on it.  http://fotomom.smugmug.com/Yates-Mill-Pond/Yates-Mill-Photo-Contest-2009/7088136_34LZC#454338880_TdGL2  In both cases, the sky looks better in the reflection than in the final shot.  I'm not sure how to get around that...especially in last night's picture when the sky really didn't have much blue in it.      We still have not had a frost or freeze at my house, but it look like it's coming Friday night into Saturday.  I am storing ceramic bird baths and pots and taking in fragile plants that I can save.      I sure wish today was Friday...  HAGD,  Maryann
3/4/15 - Still Life from the Bar  Thanks for your comments on my shot of the moon on a snowy night.
Upper Waikani Falls, a.k.a. "Three Bears Falls"  taken with a tilt-shift lens, this photograph of the 3 bears waterfall has correct perspective, doesn't suffer from lens distortion of reality.  The three waterfalls of varying sizes compliment each other well.

Tropical Fruit Stand Kipahulu, Maui  Color fruits and sign make me stop for a photo and a bite
Macro shot of the smooth and highly tangible rocks and pebbles of Waianapanapa State Park (Black Sand Beach), Maui.  These lovely rocks make an excellent fine art subject.
Waianapanapa State Park Trail, Maui  Lovely trail on the black volcanic cliffs of black sand beach.
Autumn - November 2, 2011     Thanks so much for all the very generous comments on "The Grid" photo yesterday. It was posted a couple of times before only to be ripped down by the "Snake" . Looks like it wouldn't die after all. It is one of my personal favorites as many things came together to get the shot. As it turned out I was trying to shoot blue jays on a fence when these black birds showed up everywhere. The background is a building with a corrugated siding which add the lines. The background colors near the bottom are from rust and mud. I added a graduated filter in processing to the top to give it some extra pop. Everything else was straight from the camera.      Thanks again so much from a great community of photographers.   Jeff Graham
