This morning was nippy outside and we had a good frost last night. I thought this was a good opportunity to go out to the garden and take some photos in a setting I have no experience with. I am taking some photography classes this fall. Our first one the instructor gave us some homework to try. We had to put our camera setting to Manual. Manual setting enables you to set the shutter speed. I typically use AV as that is what I learned in my first camera lesson over a year ago.
Miss Ruby Buddlea is still colourful with a bit of frost on her petals.
A faded pink cosmos has seen better days but looks interesting with a touch of frost.
Next years Foxglove is looking good with a coating of frost on its leaves.
And finally a Gaillardia frozen in time. All of my photos are SOOC with no editing. Perhaps in 6 months time I will look at them and think they are not that great but at this moment I am happy with them.
Hope you had your camera out taking some photos today? Have you been watching the Chilean miners being rescued. I have been glued to the television. I am so moved by the rescue efforts. I pray they all get out safely. Have a great day. Valerie
