Playtime



My daughter and her son came over today, and my grandson was able to play out in the yard.  He loves the outside, and loves balls, and he got to enjoy the best of both worlds.  Of course, I got the chance to get my camera out, and snap some shots.

I really like this picture.  The grass filling the frame which really highlights my grandson and his soccer ball.

After the Storm



We've had several days of storms, and they've finally mostly moved out. Still some minor chances of more rain but the sun is shining and my how everything has greened up!

I really enjoyed the reflection in the pooled water and the budding and blooming trees. I wish it would have been possible to catch the cool breeze and the smells of Spring.

I tried dividing the picture with a third of it water, a third land, and a third sky. I'm not sure I really got that, but I enjoy it.

Springtime!



It is definatly Spring in Oklahoma. My wife got these flowers the the other day and she got them planted in the front flowerbed. The new and extra color was really nice. I worked on my shot and took several pictures. I liked the way this one came out. The only editing I performed on this picture was to crop it some.

Overall, I'm pleased with it. I personally like the depth I was able to achieve.

Bradford Pear


It's feeling like spring here in Oklahoma. Flowers and trees are blooming and for the last few days anyway, it's been warm. Today's picture is brought to you by a beautiful, if not stinky tree, the Bradford Pear. I love how these trees look during the spring. I'm just glad I don't have any by my house, because they stink. I have to walk by them to and from work everyday, and I don't look forward to it.

The sun was just coming over the horizon this morning as I was walking into work, and the sunlight was shining on the white blooms. So I grabbed my camera and took a few pictures. I like the depth I was able to get in this picture. How the front flowers stand out against those in the background, and all of them offset with the blue sky.

Personally, I think you should click on the picture to see a larger image of it. I think it looks even better that way.
