A Little Yellow


Color and water.
Color and water.

A morning picture.

Low angle of light. Bright color. Water droplets from last night’s rain. No. The dog didn’t see this one. Well, she might have. But, I came back with a better camera. And, a different lens. It made a world of difference.

Despite what they tell you, better optics, better sensors, and better processors, do have a big impact. I could not have made this picture with a smart phone. The quality just wouldn’t be there. What I — and a lot of older photographers — call “creamy” wouldn’t exist using an itty bitty sensor. The extreme contrast would have blown out the highlights. The shadows would have been too deep.

So.

Happy December. Pretty soon my Christmas pictures will start showing up. Maybe, I’ll even make some new ones. Or, something.

Oh.

About these flowers. For some strange reason my neighbor planted them a couple of days ago. I realize our winter isn’t as cold some of your winters may be. Still, we do get cold around here. Below freezing. For a few days at a time. Even a few days will harm tender flowers.
