A Bouquet for July

This blog post could have the sub-title “One day in July” because all the featured pics were taken on the same day and in fact within an hour of each other. It was a photographer’s dream. The early morning mist burnt off and the light was suddenly magical. I rapidly grabbed the trusty Nikon and shot away, stopping only to change lens from standard 18-55 zoom to 70-300 zoom. I downloaded them into Photoshop and couldn’t wait to see if the results were as good as I hoped they were.

I was so pleased with this batch of pics, that I hardly binned any and didn’t visit the editing suite at all. I hope you agree that the light was indeed magical.

    Hello! I really like your post on gardening but I was thinking maybe it would be a great idea to plant foods you can eat and stuff. I have bumped into a blog called http://68anda6pack.com/2013/07/12/forking-good-exercise/. Go check it out when you have the time for a good read. Great posts and more power!
