Because yesterday was most likely the most beautiful day yet of spring, I decided to take a few quick snaps. Some of my pictures are probably bright because I still don't know what I'm doing with that fancy camera of mine, and I also experimented some. Nevertheless...here's what the lens saw:
|The spineless will bloom!!|
I'll start with my favorite--our spineless cactus! In an earlier post (don't remember when) I was fearful that the spineless wouldn't bloom because of the lack of rain and the setback it had suffered the winter of 2010.
But happily I was wrong about that. Our spineless is loaded with an amazing amount of blooms. Updates will definitely follow!!
I think I was playing around with F-stops and such on the camera with this shot. Seriously, I do not know what I was doing! But despite my lack of knowledge, I think the picture turned out okay. Or perhaps I should say...thank goodness for Picasa!!
|Desert Willow in bloom|
We'll need a little more rain to get more blooms on the Desert Willow, but it is looking lovely right now!
When taking this picture, I was practicing resetting the white balance on my camera. A friend of mine had taught me what to do this week. I don't know if I got it right or not, but this shot was better than the auto shot I took previously!
