Week 51, Day 354, April 18, 2010, Budding and Flowering

The Trees are budding and flowering n the 20-acre wetland that Cornell owns in Groton, NY.  It's interesting how different types of trees take on different hues in the spring.  I attempted to capture this photo in the fog this morning, but the fog lifted before I arrived.  I think it still worked out well, because the colors seem more defined.

Lessons Learned:
  • I have to be careful of the whites in photos like this.  I think they are over saturated in this photo.  There is an easy way to check in on the camera, but I forgot to do so.
Photo details: Exposure time 1/200 sec, Aperture f/5.0, ISO 100, Focal Length 145 mm, Lens Canon 70-200mm f2.8L USM, hand held.

It's nice to finally see some color outside. I'm having a heydey with our flowers.

Heh, my shots today are of flowering trees as well! But mine are close ups.

I found myself thinking just yesterday that the variety of colors of the trees this spring rivals the autumn's!

Very beautiful shades in this tree scape! I like the whites... they give the shot a nice rhythm and carries they eye to them and across the scene.
