Hot Georgia Night
Tom called on his way home and told me to grab my camera, because there was a sensational sunset from a sensational spot he wanted to show me. We missed the dramatic sunset but I now know where to go for sunsets when the clouds are forming dramatic patterns. Even with missing the sundown it was still hot and it will still be hot tomorrow morning.
I've been trying to take lots of pictures to edit while I recuperate from the knee replacement, but it is so hot I've taken to taking pictures first thing in the morning (good dew shots) or from inside the car with a quick roll down of the window, through the sunroof of the car or the most fun taking photos at night. I am learning to use the manual settings on my camera and am not using the flash. I am having great fun learning a new skill and getting some exciting new photos. I am so glad this was the theme for Written inc this week; it has been most enjoyable. Below are some photos I took of my garden at night using only available lighting and playing with the camera settings especially shutter speed. Even though I am just learning I am thrilled with the results so far (giggle-giggle). I hope you ENJOY, too.
