Spiffy Lookin' Trees
Both of these photos were taken in a public park along the Indian River Lagoon in Sebastian, Florida. About ten miles (16km) south of where I live.
It was a beautiful day, and I was just snapping away. Later as I looked through the photos on the computer, I really liked the first one. It isn't artistic or anything, but the trees have plenty of character on their own. The clock was put up as a memorial for something or other, but I've forgotten what.
The second photo was at the same park, but I liked the symmetry of them lined up there, with the tall one in the middle.
I'm glad I got a few decent shots, because my camera battery died about fifteen minutes after I got there. Nikon's camera batteries last a very long time, but once the camera battery level indicator starts showing anything less than full, I know I need to charge it up. It was showing 3/4 full, so I thought that it would last a while. Nope, from 3/4 full until it stopped working was about 50 photos.
My new lens has Nikon's vibration reduction feature, which I love, love, love, but I'm even more careful to keep my battery topped off.
