Practice makes....

The new camera I bought last week has so many features it's taking time to get used to them. Using the settings that were useful on the old camera comes up short on the new one.

But practice time is paying off. The pictures are looking better. It will still take a while to get where I want to be. 

Today, as I drove by the small lake not far from our house, I saw Queen Ann's Lace growing on the banks.  Glancing in the rearview, the coast was clear. I hopped and snapped a few frames. I was hoping to catch the geese, but they were hiding in the shallows under the shade of some willow trees. They glanced over as if to say, come back this evening when it's cooler. I get that.

I hope you have a great Thursday.


  1. Love your pictures. And the new camera is fabulous.

  2. Oh, a new camera. How exciting - and from time to time, frustrating - while you work out what works best.


  3. My new camera is still smarter than I am. A work in progress.
    And my progress seems to be slower than yours.

  4. Nice photo of the Queen Ann's Lace and the lake. I know you'll get better at using the features on your new camera because you have a goal in mind.
    One good ting about digital cameras is the you can delete the photos that are not to your liking.

    Today is sunny so it looks like a great day.
    Hugs, Julia

  5. One good thing, not ting. sorry for the typo.

  6. I do love Queens Anne Lace. It's so pretty growing in the wild. You captured them in all their glory.
