Rainy Sunday

January 25, 2010

Yesterday the rain fell on and off all morning and early afternoon. It was miserable outside for all kind of living creatures. This bluebird is wet to the bones and looking gloomy. Springs seems far away today...

Early signs of Spring

One of my orchids started showing signs of flowering last December, a month earlier than usual and it’s looking like it’s going to be a beauty. I’ll keep you posted.

My new camera

January 18, 2010

I gave myself a Nikon D-90 for Christmas. I got it with a 18-200mm zoom lens and later, my son found a couple of his old Nikon lenses, a very fast AF 50mm and a 180mm 1:2.8 AF telephoto lens, fast but without Vibration Reduction.

Now I started dreaming about a 500mm super telephoto or zoom. I’m considering several possibilities, though the Nikon super zooms seems to be out of my range.

Anyway, I’m having a lot of fun learning to use my new camera. Hopefully, the results will merit the time and money expended.
