2016-02-14: What I’ve seen this week

I managed to get out shooting yesterday with a few people from the photography group I belong to.  I went without expectations, only with the hope of putting the Tamron through it’s paces, as it is finally back from its second trip to service (and I must say, it seems to be focusing better than when I bought it, so fingers crossed the issues are resolved).  I also took out my new camera, a Panasonic FZ1000, to start learning how to use it, and again, so far so good (and SO lightweight!!!).

I’ve not had much time for editing, so I will post a few now, and a few more photos through the week.

Have a great week everyone 🙂

Old man’s beard and other assorted lichens decorate the branches.

From the ground up…

The blue sky didn’t last long…

A birth tree with a bare midriff. Whether people picked away at the bark, or animals or birds did, I don’t know.

Moss, lichen, fungus and peeling bark; a whole lot of texture on one small tree trunk.  And all that green!  I’m really enjoying it after all the snow I’ve been looking at for months.  There’s still a fair bit on the ground, but it recess a bit each day.

I liked this photo for a couple reasons.  First, the spring buds!  I was surprised to see those.  Second, the repeating triangle shapes created by both the live and broken branches.

I’ve been seen this plant everywhere lately, I have no idea what it is, but I like the texture and detail.
