Week 47, Day 329, March 24, 2010, More Evidence of Spring

We are starting to see new evidence of spring.  The snow is almost all gone.  Although I we did have some on the ground this morning, but it did melt quickly.  The crocus are blooming, and the bees are out.  Spring is in the air.

Lessons Learned:
  • Today was a very busy day, and very little time for photography, but I did catch a few shots on the walk to my car.
  • I think that my wife and I are starting to see the same things.  Both yesterday and today we either talked about or took the same photos.  We didn't know the other person was taking similar photos.  Happy Birthday Judy.
  • A 50mm lens with a small focal length can create interesting artifacts in macro-style photography.
 Photo details: Exposure time 1/4000 sec, Aperture f/1.8 ISO 100, Focal Length 50 mm, 35 mm equivalent focal length 82mm, Lens Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II, handheld.

Haha no way! I literally just walked in from shooting bees in our purple crocuses. That's my tomorrow post.

I'm jealous! My crocus aren't in bloom yet.

Happy Birthday Mrs. Gallow!

Nice! I Like the DOF. Bees? No way, I've seen crocus' and mosquitos but no bees yet.

Yolanda said...

Hehe.. OK, Steve, Andrew.. get out of my head!! OK, maybe mine didn't have a bee, but apparently we all had the crocus in our viewfinder today. great minds think alike!

Nicki said...

I haven't seen a crocus yet. Will have to look closer but am sure the bees are going to hide after tonight and with the cold tomorrow.

Nice job, Steve.

It is the color of a beautiful flower letting me feel a sign of the spring.
