Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Vanishing Point

…thanks to Cee for hosting The Fun Foto Challenge

The vanishing point is where the road ends at the horizon, or river, pathway, row of trees, or anything else that gets smaller the further away it is.

An Icy Morning Light

….thanks to Becky B for hosting January Squares

I had to get up very early this morning to drive my daughter to the airport. The plus side of this favour was that I was up early enough to see the sunrise. I loved playing around with different angles and was fascinated how the morning sun reflected off the icicles along the shoreline.D341AC28-4E26-4DBF-AC3F-A49B86AF0464_1_201_a

Busy Bees

….I’m loving my macro lens

I’m still learning how to use my macro lens and right now I feel like I’m not really in control. It’s very hit or miss when I’m trying to capture the perfect shot. I’m not sure what I’ve done right when I get the shot or what I’m doing wrong when I don’t. Here are a few attempts at trying to capture bees at work.

The bottom photo is obviously not a bee but when my lens got close enough to get a clear shot these orange and black milkweed bugs would quickly move to the back of the milkweed pod that they were sitting on.

Can anyone give me suggestions for getting better close-up shots. When I adjust the lens it doesn’t appear to change what I’m seeing through the lens.
