OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Production Line

I posted a similar photo last year, but this is the first time I witnessed how an Apple Snail “hatches” her eggs. It was very interesting to watch her push out her eggs in what looked like a regular little production line. The eggs are such a pretty color!

Taken with my Olympus TG-4 on microscope mode.

Wildflower Garden

Our Alaskan Cruise ended in the seaside town of Seward, which is known as the Mural Capital of Alaska.  The town currently has 22 murals.  It was named “Mural Capital of Alaska” in 2008 when it had only 12.  I would have loved to seen all 22, but my time was limited in Seward.  You can read more about these murals here.

Week 26

Strike!

Our Camera Club’s monthly field trip was to a local bowling alley. We had a lot of fun! It’s a very colorful bowling alley. This was a strike that one of the Camera Club members achieved!

My settings were ISO 200, f/5.6, 1/50 sec, at 252mm (70-300mm). Cropped a little and applied Topaz Adjust’s Photo Pop filter.

Glacier Bay, Alaska

The family went on an Alaskan cruise on the ship, Norwegian Sun, that traveled from Vancouver, Canada to Seward, Alaska.  If you have never been on an Alaskan cruise, you definitely need to add it to your bucket list.  We were so fortunate that the weather was clear all six days.  It was really hard to pick a photo from the 429 I took on this trip.  The views are spectacular (especially in person).  Really going to be hard to go back to work.  I took this with my Olympus TG-4 on landscape mode.  Boosted the contrast and cropped.

Happy Clicking!

Week 25A

Gone With Mariah

These are Desert Rose seeds, just coming out of their seed pod, to be soon picked up by the wind in their effort to propagate new plants elsewhere. Another one of Nature’s amazing design achievements!

My settings were ISO 200, f/5.6, 1/360 sec at 59mm (18-135mm). My husband is holding a black foam board behind it. It was actually fairly breezy and we were afraid they would fly off at any time, but they remained long enough to get a few shots in.

Week 25 – Robin

RedDragonfly

My husband and I headed out to Viera Wetlands today, but it was closed and too hot today to walk. Click ponds was open, but no birds… only some dragonflies, but this Scarlet Skimmer is a pretty subject. They seemed to be extra red today. Maybe it was the heat. 😀

Used a Canon 6D and 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS lens. Settings were 1/320 sec, f/6.3; ISO 100.
