Peony

Peony

We were concerned about having peony in the yard. They are notorious for attracting ants and we had an invasion of the little critters recently. But they are sure a showy bloom. I haven’t seen this variety before … and they seem to be very short lived, compared to my experience with the more typical variety.

These lilies are growing in my yard. I was walking around the yard with my camera and took quite a few of this plant. I liked the way this one looks with a lot of the detail de-emphasized. It actually has a lot of texture, but I set the new Lightroom texture slider all the way down to the low extreme and really liked the effect.

Red Hot Poker

Latin name of this is Kniphofia … but everyone that I know calls them Red Hot Pokers. This is the first time that I have had one growing in my yard. They are sure a lot different than most of the rest of the flowers in the yard.

2019-03-20 Full Moon Color

This shot was March 20th at 7:18 PM from Fort Worden in Port Townsend, WA. I used a 300mm lens with a 2x teleconverter on a tripod with a shutter release.

I can’t decide if I like the B&W or the color better. The reflection of the sunset in the windows on the houses on Whidbey Island is nice and shows up a little better in the color. But the B&W seems sharper and less hazy. The adjustments were made in Lightroom and the B&W conversion was made of the final color image in Silver Effects Pro 2.

Camera: Nikon D850

Lens: Nikkor 300mm PF with 2x teleconverter

ISO: 100    1/25sec    f/8 (wide open with the 2x doubling the effective aperture)

View from Point Madison

DSC_1315-Edit-Edit

Point Madison is in Fort Worden State Park in Port Townsend, WA. I had raced down to the point to try and get a photo of a rainbow behind the lighthouse. It had pretty much faded away by the time I got there (see below). But when I started back up the hill, I was struck by the clouds and the sun shining off the wet streets.

Camera: Nikon D850
Lens: Zeiss Milvus 135mm
