Shapes

You guys all know how I love odd shapes.
Isn't it amazing how trees grow, how they reach?
I love tree shapes almost as much as I love bug wings!
 
 
So, I took my Macro lens out for a spin since the
Wide Angle Zoom is smashed.
Consoled myself with a ride to a nearby lake/park
and took these.
The Oak Trees are stunning without leaves.
Funny thing about these is that the lens was pointed up.
When I pointed straight I got a yellow sunset.
I'll post those tomorrow.

  2. I really like Jeanne the structured human element with the natural wild form. Really cool shots placed together. How's the long camera lens?:)

    1. I'm still struggling with the long lens 70-300. I know that's not top of the line but I can't seem to get that crisp, sharp shot. I guess it takes patience and practice. The hawk post about a week ago was the best I have gotten so far.

  4. The color of the light changes based on where you point it. These are lovely silhouettes! And yes, I adore tree shapes after the leaves have fallen. Such beautiful texture.

    So you're having trouble with sharpness on your 70-300mm lens? If it is the Nikkor one, it is notorious for being "soft." I have one and have never, ever gotten the image as crisp as it should be. But you should make sure that you are shooting at a faster speed to compensate for the longer lens and the vibration reduction setting is turned on. Camera shake is common when hand-holding lenses that are zoomed out to the max, so your image will come out blurry if you aren't careful.
