Happy Mothers Day

Although this photo has nothing to do it, Happy Mothers Day. We will be off to the park with daughter and grandkids in a bit.


As for the photo, I went out at the crack of dawn yesterday, hoping for a nice sunrise. Too bad the sun didn't rise. :) But I took a few photos anyway. This one was a 1 minute long exposure.

With the long winter, it has been awhile since I tried to take what I consider to be a real photo: going somewhere nice at a good time of day with the express purpose of taking a certain photo, usually with a tripod. Most of my shots for a long time have been sort of a 'run and gun' type of thing, which is good enough most of the time, but not usually the very best.

It is beautiful...with tripod? Has a water color feel.

I need to use my tripod more often! This photo turned out beautifully!

That is a beautiful place----I drive past them all the time, but if my family isn't posing, I don'y take photos.

Short-sighted in the not literal way

I have a tiny baby tripod somewhere. I think it came from a dollar store somewhere in the USA, however, it works! I very rarely see the sun come up! Nice photo, even though the sun didn't really co-operate.

What a beautiful serene photo. I need to be more deliberate about picture-taking too; it makes a big difference, you're right.

It's very pretty! I love doing long-exposure shots with water. Great satiny look to the water. Hope y'all had a nice Mother's Day.
