Easter Sunday, April 8, 2007
Happy Resurrection Sunday!
The first photo is one of Lovely Wife's new flower pots and some brilliant purple petunias she planted the other day. Gorgeous. Nikon D70s; 1/40sec; f20; ISO 200
The second photo is actually a fake flower that is in our little water fountain/tub on the back patio. I glanced over and the late afternoon sun was shining on it and the water was rippling and glinting in the light. Quite beautiful for a fake flower. Nikon D70s; 1/200sec; f5.6; ISO 200
Due to the crazy week, and preparing for the memorial service for Lovely Wife's Mother on this past Friday, I haven't had a chance to get out on a photo excursion with my new lens.
Friday after the memorial service, and after everyone left our house, I took a few shots out back around the pool. I can already tell that I love, love, love this lens.
It's nice and sharp for such a wide range zoom and the vibration reduction feature (similar to Canon's image stabilization) is quite amazing.
Both of these photos were taken with the new 18-200mm Nikon VR lens on a 15 minute mini photo safari on our home's back patio/pool area.
God bless all of you on this most holy of Christian holidays.
Don't forget to go over to my "real" blog, on which I post photos each and every Sunday.
