Backyard Beauty

Nikon D90, 50 mm, ISO 250, f/8, shutter speed 1/125

So I started writing my second post today, and honestly it was dismal.  It was about low lighting and how it was the bane of my existence, and how frustrated I am every time I find myself in that situation.  I got about a paragraph in and said forget it.

Part of what I want this blog to do for me is to force me to pick up my camera every day and push myself to find beauty around me.  Stretching my abilities and learning how to frame it through my lens.  With that thought, I abandoned the computer and headed outside with George (my Nikon D90 – why I call him George is a post for another day :).

As I wandered into my backyard, the yellow flowers on the edge of my woods caught my eye.  I couldn’t help but think these yellow things are the culprit for allergy flare ups.  However, as I moved closer I also couldn’t help but notice all the activity buzzing around the delicate yellow blossoms.  There had to have been at least two or three bees, a wasp and a butterfly flitting around enjoying the nectar.

In that instant time stopped.  I had found my beauty, and depressing low lighting posts evaporated.

I had accomplished what I set out to do.
