Imagine a hot summer and thousands of honey bees flying around water sources.
Yes, this one of those thousands of honey bees.
Every single day brings to us new opportunities, new ways to discover the nature, to discover ourselves.
A foggy day. Sounds terrible, right? (This is not true for those who live in Scotland, but this is the price they owe for rivers, lakes, sea).
When I started my ride, I was wondering what I was looking for, what were my aims.
I decided to find beauty.
But when your hands freeze to the camera, when the wind is blowing, when it’s cold outside and you are alone where is the beauty?
I strongly believe it’s first in you, and after everywhere you look.
Stand up and express the beauty inside you!
Have a great week!
And here I go!
Hello, my dear readers!
A while ago I was asking you about what camera I should choose. My budget was limited, my desires were (and still are) unlimited so it was a hard decision.
On this Black Friday I bought a new camera. In Romania, Black Friday was this year on 22nd November(because 30th November and 1st December are free days and it’s hard to deliver so many products if Black Friday would be on 29th November).
So I’m the owner of a lovely Canon Powershot SX 160 IS.
If you wonder what I was looking for, you might find useful to read my post here.
But why this Canon?
1. This was the best camera I could aford at this moment.
2. I have complete control of exposure, selecting both aperture and shutter speed manually. I can even control manually the focus. (This is something new for me and not so easy to master.)
3. 16x Optical Zoom Lens(lens starts at 28mm wide-angle and extends to 448mm telephoto). You know I love birds and this zoom helps me so much.
It was very hard for me to get used this week with the new camera but I hope for more, and more, and more.
My main subject now: birds.
Here you have some photos.
Even sparrows are nice posers:
We don’t have many woodpeckers as then when I was a kid…unfortunatelly.
This Common buzard was standing on a pole and after he noticed me, he decided to go. But you may see in the photo below how the mud ‘flew’ from its claws(the snow it’s almost melted and the fields are muddy). It was a very powerful take off!
I will be as busy as the chickadee above.
Have a nice week!
Imagine a white man on a field. No, not a snowman but a man dressed in white(using a camouflage) trying to take his first photos using his new camera.
Perhaps for you, dear reader, there is nothing to laugh but for this dog was so funny to see a man standing still for minutes waiting for some birds to come.
Well, yes, that man was me and I have got a new camera. And the dog above is one of those many stray dogs we have in this area. They bark all the time when they see me…Sometimes I hate this, other time I know at least I am not alone there.
What’s my new camera?
I will tell you in the following days!
And yes, the dog has many reasons to laugh, the photo above is not one of my best…unfortunately.
This little guy was trapped in a container where we store cereals.
It was interesting for me to observe him so close, to notice all its features.
Many people dislike mice, and I agree with them: if a mouse would be in my room, be sure I will take enough time to catch him, I will even ‘borrow’ a cat from a neighbour to solve the problem(yes, unfortunately now we have no cat. So sad.). Otherwise, mice look quite nice.
After a few shots, I decided to spare his life, and I set it free.
I will post even more photos of it.
Just a short notice: after 3 and half years my camera passed away.
Now I’m waiting for Black Friday, I noticed a nice camera and I hope to get it at a good price. Until then I’m posting some photos I have taken past months.
And something else, WordPress says :
I say ” welcome” to my new followers. I hope you will enjoy my photos (or at least some of them).
I am more than happy to reply to your comments, and answer to all of your questions (even if this might take me a while).
