Just got back from a trip to Yellowstone, and had a fabulous time taking photos. Unfortunately it was smokey a lot of the time, which interfered with scenic shots. But, I did have a great time taking photos of other things.
The boiling mud was my favorite! Love taking drops of photos, but the mud is so thick that the bubbles & drops seem to move in slow motion. The spot was at the Dragon’s Mouth Spring which is fascinating!
My goal on this ugly rainy day was to photograph rain drops. I tried to capture them, “freezing” them in time. This was tough, and I don’t think they came out great. The hard part was focusing on where the drops were falling. Also I didn’t want to get my camera wet! I know what to do now, but it got dark early so I was not able to try it. Maybe tomorrow (since there is more rain in the forecast). Here’s 4 of my shots.
I did not get a chance to photograph today (It was a painting day), so I thought I would work on a photo from a few days ago. I was looking for something that I could do black & white (I love that about digital!) Here’s some of the rain drops on my porch from the big “flooding” rain we had a few days ago!
I got some gorgeous flowers today at work for Administrative Professionals Day/Week. I also got an amazing chocolate cake from Upper Crust Bakery and a bottle of wine! I was such a nice surprise! (I think they missed me while I was on vacation! I should go on vacation more often!) 🙂
Ok, I am sort of cheating, this is a photo from yesterday, but I was way too busy and tired to go out tonight, or even hold up my camera (the Canon 40D is heavy!). This is water splashing on rocks at a fountain at the Palmer Events Center. I love photographing water at different speeds!
