Brrr....

The "snowpocalypse" ended up being quite a meager thing.

I think I'm in love...

... with my 10-17mm pentax super-wide angle fisheye lens. I was expecting it to be huge like my old 17-35mm wide angle, but it is surprisingly compact.

Here are a couple of really quick pictures just to get a sense of the lens. I'm taking this baby out for real tomorrow.

Miley is not impressed with the lens!

Botanics

I went out to the botanical gardens today with the parentals to see the Christmas Train Show. I love the botanical gardens, and since I bought all of the tickets for us, I put the ticket prices towards a membership for B and me. I want to go up again in March for the Orchid Show anyway, and in the summer for the big tropical show.

This time at the garden, I tried to concentrate on light, shapes, and textures and less on the flora as a whole.

(the train pictures are not artful, but I will post those later)

Fall Colors

Today was a beautiful day. Sadly, because of the way that the weather has been this year, the leaves are just turning brown and dropping off the trees rather than turning beautiful fall colors. So I went looking for fall on this 63 degree day.
