The Moon in June

A color photo of the weekend moon. Looks like it's gonna roll down that hill! I love raw files and non-destructive editing.

Big Moon in Black and White

I went out last eve to shoot the supermoon, as tonight's forecast is cloudy. Editing in Lightroom 4, the pros make it look easy, but it's a complex program. In this version I removed color and some foreground trees; it looks a bit otherworldly to me now. I used the Tamron 70-300 vc to bring the moon in close.

Fuschia Hollyhocks

Some pretty fuschia hollyhocks from the backyard. Photo taken a month or two ago; it's too hot for hollyhocks now.

Close up Granite Column, UCDavis

Another example of the 50mm reverse macro (granite); there is a lovely refraction near the center of this shot. I hadn't realized b4 that granite has a crystalline structure.

Reverse Macro 50mm lens

Using my Canon 50mm 1.8 lens reversed to get an interesting and up close look at a cracked granite slab @UCDavis. I went to Davis yesterday to see the last DAS plays for the year. My son wrote one and directed one; everyone raved about the one he wrote! It was awesome! Contemporary and funny and imaginative. The actors and director were  awesome, too.
