Flowers

Give the desert a little rain and the flowers start blooming their brains out. I took these photos this morning.
               .

This little pretty is just one of dozens at the edge of the driveway.
            .

Playing here with depth-of-field. With the aperture wide open, focus is at a very narrow range of distance. Sometimes it's a good effect, sometimes not.
                  .

The star of the photo. I like to see how close I can get and still focus.
               .

I like these ground-level shots. Aperture is stopped up to f22 to get greater depth-of-field. In this shot I used "Shadow Protection" to lighten things up a bit, and I also raised the White Balance "K" number up to warm things up a bit, i.e., make things less blue.
                    .

There's a green stubble everywhere.
           .

My neighbors, John and Girl, stopped by as I was taking pictures. Girl is usually moving so fast that it's hard to get a picture.

GPS Sunset

This is an old photo that I took back around '05. Memory Lane.

I don't remember what I was doing here, but I think that's a sunset.
