In the Garden, Fields, and Woods

{Photography.26.1}: Suzanne Griffith {sggriffith} Tue, 05 Aug 2003 17:52:59 EDT (2 lines)

This is a topic for plant photographs of all kinds and discussion
about taking pictures of plants.

I mostly take pictures in my yard and neighborhood. This is a former Christmas tree:

Oh, I love the colors in that, with the combination of greens with
the magenta and brown. Is it a blue spruce? Are the pink thingies
little cone buds, or is it new growth?

--------

I'm not sure what they are. I'm doing a study of plant parts - I
think a lot of plants are from other galaxies, especially those
giant decorative cabbages ;-)

But, yes, it's a blue spruce, and I think the pink thingies are cone
buds. The new growth is the blue - it turns to the darker green when
it gets older.

I *love* the composition on that, as well as the colors.

Thank you!

Let's see some of your garden, Judy :-)

> I think the pink thingies are cone buds.

Yep. The purple cone-like structures are new cones I think they are the male cones. The female cones come later.

Ok, this is one of my first shots with the new camera. It thematically fits with this topic, although it was actually taken just across the street from my office, in a tree box.

Oooh. That's a really cool one, Elizabeth!

We have tons of rotting logs in our woods, and all sorts of amazing fungi. Haven't seen that one, though.

Took this shot of a big one that was growing in the middle of our grass a few weeks ago, where the remains of an old stump is just below the surface:

A couple of days later it was a messy, gooey blob!

Oops.

Here is another wonder of rotting wood:

Stupendous fungi, folks!

Elizabeth, you just started using that camera? I'm in awe!

Elizabeth good work! I am supremely jealous you know, I'm still
learning about my Minolta Dimage 5 after owning it for months.

Kai your fungus photos are good, the one in post #12 is nothing less
than awesome. Superb.

--------

{Photography.26.15}: Which Hazel? {hazel2} Wed, 06 Aug 2003 23:05:19 EDT (1 line)

Oh, I love fungus! Those are all very cool pics, Elizabeth and Kai.

Thanks, guys.

Here's one of my current favorites from my garden. It's a rose names "Emily"

Oh! That's stunning!

How is the background so dark?

--------

{Photography.26.20}: Cleophus {cleophus} Fri, 08 Aug 2003 14:20:19 EDT (2 lines)

Camera adjusted/exposed for the bright roses and darkened the
background/shadow?

--------

{Photography.26.21}: Judy Johnson {judy} Fri, 08 Aug 2003 14:24:52 EDT (4 lines)

Thanks, Suzanne :)
I'm not sure why the background is so dark. The sky was overcast,
IIRC. I think cleophus is right. Also, there were a lot of tall
plants behind it.

{Photography.26.22}: Dan Griffith {xenophon} Sat, 09 Aug 2003 08:59:36 EDT (4 lines)

Judy, very well done.

Sheesh! Somebody else I have to be jealous of! This is getting
complicated!

{Photography.26.23}: Judy Johnson {judy} Sat, 09 Aug 2003 22:24:26 EDT (2 lines)

Thanks, but I'm definitely in the
shoot-a-bunch-and-hope-for-a-couple-of-good-ones category.

{Photography.26.24}: Kai Hagen {kai} Sat, 09 Aug 2003 22:58:42 EDT (1 line)

I like it a lot with the dark background.

Nothing wrong with that, thats the way National Geographic does it.
