Backyard findings. These guys freak me out how they watch my every move while I am trying to get close. Shot with Olympus TG4. Settings f4.9, 1/100sec, iso1000, 18mm. Applied Topaz Adjust Spicify.
Saw this duck land on the bank of our neighbor’s pond and took this photo from our yard. It was taken right after a thunder storm with some light just beginning to come thru the clouds.
Applied some cropping and Topaz Adjust 5’s Spicify filter. The filter added all the different colors to the reflections in the water. My settings were ISO 1600, f/11, 1/400 sec. at 277mm (70-300mm).
I hurt my back this past week, so photographing options were limited. It hurts to even carry my camera. 😦 So, having to stick close to home, I saw this air plant growing on the electrical lines crossing our road in front of our house. Interesting how nature can be found most anywhere. I’ve noticed this air plant on different locations on the wire…I imagine being blown left or right by the wind.
My settings were ISO 200, f/6.3, 1/2000 sec, at 300mm (70-300mm). Applied some cropping and Topaz Adjust 5’s photo pop filter.
