June 3rd/Week 22

This week, nature has been a total jerk with temperature soaring into the high 90’s and even 100 at one point.  Between the heat wave, the general mugginess, and the fact that we are without central air conditioning, this photographer was NOT willing to go exploring.  So here are a few from my week in hiding.

75mm, 1/250, f/3.5, ISO 800 – I caught some plants out front just after a big rain. 

75mm, 1/125, f/7.1, ISO 400 – I found the most gorgeous orchids at our local Trader Joe’s.

60mm, 1/40, f/9, ISO 800 – They seemed to like it out on my front porch.

75mm, 1/100, f/5, ISO 800 – How beautiful is the inside of this orchid?  Seriously.  Nature is stunning sometimes.

75mm, 1/80, f/2.8, ISO 400 – This is the awesome glass eyeball paperweight Keith bought for me down in Kentucky.  How about THOSE catchlights?

75mm, 1/100, f/5, ISO 400 – And the first tiny wild strawberries of the season have shown up in our yard.  And in Buckley’s fur, not shockingly.

42mm, 1/125, f/3.5, ISO 200 – Finally, this is the absolutely GORGEOUS sky that I saw on the evening of the wedding of our two friends, Alex and Nancy.  I’d like to think that a sky like this means they will have a happy life together long into their golden years.

  1. Love these. The leaves with the raindrops and the sky are my favorites. I always want to photograph raindrops on leaves, but I can’t seem to do it well. Yours is perfect. And that sky is amazing. You should give a print to your friends as a keepsake of their wedding day.
