A word of warning - not a stitch of food will be featured in today's post - but you will see lots of pics, and a funny video! As I mentioned in my previous post, I've finally invested in a high quality camera (Canon Rebel XS). I'm in the beginning stages of learning how to use all that it has to offer, but it's taken spectacular photos thus far... and it's opened up a whole new world. While nature has always been super important to me, I've never been overly drawn to photograph it (although I do love taking food pictures outside). On my little photo adventure last week, I discovered just how amazing every flower petal, leaf, rain drop, and bug is! My camera is able to capture the beauty of these generally overlooked things in a way my old cam couldn't. Not only that but on a particularly difficult and emotional day, the act of getting creative in nature lifted me out of my funk. It's another creative outlet and healing modality!
Here are some of the shots I've taken...May you enjoy as much as I do!
Two toned pink lupins... I looove these!
Purple lupin- They line our roads in various colours this time of year.
A wild rose - these are in such abundance right now!
Light pink rose... see the water droplets in it?
A rose with two buggies in it :)
Some kind of wild flower, anyone know what it is?
I stumbled upon a lady bug! I haven't seen one in years!
I had no idea a dandelion could be so beautiful! I love it's featheriness!
Blue Bells in the grass
A chive flower... have you ever looked closely at one?
Remember a number of posts ago when I posted some pictures of the bear who came to visit? I took a little video and turned it into this little video yesterday. I'm a first timer when it comes to editing (normally my Boo Bear aka, Philip does it for me), but it turned out. I still laugh every time I watch it :)
