I have been debating whether of not to take the 365 day challenge but looking over some of the current challengers - I thought - I don't ever want to be so un-inspired that I take a picture of a scan disk...I love photography and I think HAVING to take a picture when you are just not inspired defeats the purpose and enjoyment....so I just take when I feel like it and post when I find time ;0 The sun came out - finally and I love these simple pics of Taeya doing her homework. I got a couple with the sun beams streaming across her. With the flowers I placed the sun behind so I got the transparent petals.
'Mommy look at that pink cloud!!!!' An extremely excited Paige yelled to me from the dinning room - 'Get your camera quick!" I did as I was told ;) I know the WB is off but that is how pink the cloud looked - too cool!
It was the coolest sunset this evening, I raced out to capture these while my soup simmered on the stove. I only had about 5 minutes to capture it! I took the ISO down to 200 - even though it was darker - because I wanted the peach tones to really show through - and I wanted the mountain to just be black so it did not distract from the setting sun. I shot with 1/800 SS and an aperture of f/5.6. I think they turned out pretty nice!
