More piccies!

Well knock me down! I didn’t expect what I woke up to this morning at all. I was kinda drifting in and out of sleep at 8.15am (which for me is good. Even at the weekends I seem to get up EARLIER than I do in the week! Yet come weekdays I have to drag my butt out of bed. Maybe it’s the alarm I dispise? Or the fact I got to go to work?)

I jumped up out of bed thinking I’d get a start on some of my projects for the class before I get the call as we’re going down the pub for dinner today. It’s mum’s birthday today and was my parent’s 27th Wedding anniversary on Friday, so no cooking at the parents house lol. I walked over to my curtain and opened it up and saw this:

Yeah, silly neighbour
Complete with neighbour’s washing! Her last lot was our a month and a half. This went out on Thursday. But OMG. Snow! Now I went out and came back about 10.30pm? and it was bucketing with rain. There’s no way it would have settled, so it must have snowed a ton to have settled overnight after lots of rain.

Snow! In April!

and the horses:
Horse
Fake Horse
Horse

We were lucky with these. We walked through the field to the park and they were just standing there really, and we went to the park but got dodgy looks from the parents, which was a shame cos we wanted to go on the swings! So I snapped a pic of the play horse then we went back. A lady and her daughter were grabbing long grass to feed to the horses right at the sty we needed to jump over to get in the field to walk back, so I got these as they were next to us 🙂 Then it rained, which I should have realised really as the dark clouds were coming our way!

I seriously can’t explain how much I love this lens. I just adore the shots and it works in low light really well. As I said at my nan’s house I usually get lots of blurry and dark photos which irks me so. Now with this I got gorgeous ones! But having said that, the focus is very difficult to get right at the moment. For all those good shots you see, there’s another background-in-focus-and-the-subject-is-blurry shots lol. I just got to practise lots. The snow tree shot is a good example. I normally have my camera on Apeture Priority. For the tree I had to choose macro just because the branches are thin and it helped focus on them better.

  1. Those pictures are awesome!! I want a macro lense for my rebel, but I doubt my pics would turn out as well.

  2. Great pictures (in this entry and the last entries)! Snow! How cool. It’s starting to feel like summer here, in the high 80s all week.
