Day 11, Right in your backyard


Well in this case, it was my front yard. You can take nice looking photos anywhere. The trick is to find interesting angles with nice clean backgrounds. I've always liked the trees in my front yard when they are covered in snow or frost, today the sky had a nice ripple of clouds so I went out with my point and shoot and made this image. Nice and close and I'm happy with the results. Has nothing to do with me being tired today......

As I uploaded my daily photo from my camera I saw a photo I took the other day that I completely forgot about. This is the reason I like having a small point and shoot camera with me even when I'm using my DSLR. The other day at the park I was taking pictures and when I checked my settings I saw the perfect snowflake.



If I didn't have my other camera with me, this photo would of never happened. The pic bellow is the original unedited version of the top photo.



And for Tammy, no, I wasn't just using the snowman setting............
