On Sunday, we had rain.  Unusual for August.  Here is an image from the many frames I made.  Given the brown and dry surroundings of my backyard, I enjoyed this lushness!

Starting September 2: Inspiring Nature Photography:  The Essentials (four week course)

I hope that you are enjoying the new blog!  Tomorrow I have another One-on-One workshop.  Have a good weekend.

Cheers,  Bill

  1. Hi Jerry,

    This lens is very helpful here. I am shooting at a low angle so there is a lot of depth, esp at 90mm. I didn’t want my reflection to show, and I was also avoiding tree reflections at this angle. By tilting the lens, I ensure sharpness and also have some flexibility to use a wider aperture. If this had been a straight 90mm, I would have needed f/22 or smaller to get foreground and background pads sharp.

    It is brown around here. No offense! And I am a 4th generation Californian…

    I like the lilies. Can you explain why you used the TS lens?

    We moved to California in the particularly dry summer of 1988. When I mentioned the brown hills to my native cousin, she indignantly corrected me: the hills were “golden.” I hope you don’t suffer similar criticism. 😉 —JLD
