Playing with the macro setting

A gift from a dear friend, close up (you really want to click the image on this one to see the larger size):

another one for manda...

I'm so happy...the old camera just wasn't capable of this level of detail this close up...and the image is so crisp and clean...squee!

8MP of SLR = JOY.

I got a new camera. :) Not just any camera, mind, but THE camera. The one I've been lusting after for months, the one whose constantly extolled virtues have been driving my husband mad...

I have named her Precious. For she is precious to me, and all those who follow in my boodline shall be bound to her fate.../Isildur ;-)

Look what she can do!

The girls' garden bunnies didn't get put away before the snow fell. So now they're snow bunnies.

Perspective is everything

The shortest day, or, the longest night

Sunrise at 7:48 am; sunset at 4:34 pm; and a lamppost replaces the sun.

If you take the time to look...

it's amazing what you'll see.
