I do sweat the small stuff

and you should know that by now.  Here’s a group of tiny things that have found themselves in front of my lens.

Shadowy undergrowth

Spotted touch-me-not

Fuzzy friend

oh and something a little different, from Ryan and Wood Distillery, based in Gloucester, MA.

Spirits of Massachusetts

Haven’t been shooting so much as last year, but I am going to California in September and so hope for some good things from that trip.

 


It is upon us

or perhaps at our feet.

Mushroom season of course.  This year with a lot less rain, there will probably be a lot fewer ‘shrooms about, but those that are are rarin’ to go.

possibly Cantharellus

I shot a few in full shade, but they are so flat and lifeless compared to this shot with the sun lighting them up – especially the stems.  I find working with dappled sunlight to be kind of a race.  Can I set up, compose, clean up and shoot all before the sun moves?  I’m getting a tad bit better at it, but it’s always a challenge.


Ohio Weekend

Hey all.  I haven’t posted in a while, but today I’m back with some shots from last weekend when my husband and I flew to Ohio to spend a weekend with some friends.  It wasn’t a photography trip per se, but I did shoot a little bit.  We visited Killbuck Marsh which is a very large floodplain surrounded by farms.  We didn’t spend a lot of time there though.  We spent a bit more time at our friend’s ranch and so I’ve got a few shots of his neighbor’s ranch at sundown.  Enjoy!
