More Photos

_DSC4395

I finally logged back into my flickr account and uploaded some recent photos from an evening trip to Mercer Island. It was around sunset, the light was beautiful, and I had about two hours to myself to just shoot what I could.

This hand was part of many holding a chain along some docks. The sunset was truly beautiful, but it was difficult to find a decent vantage point._DSC4424, given the people at the beach and the many trees. For more photos, check out my flickr stream.

Some photos of Pine Lake

Pine Lake 1 We went down to one of the many local lakes and I snapped a couple of shots of the lake during sunshot. It’s a small, beautiful lake with a tiny public beach, a dock inhabited by fishermen and a small swimming area. No motorized boats are allowed.

I’m sure there are hundreds of places within a few minutes’ drive of here that have wonderful photo opportunities. It’s just a matter of taking the time to find them.Sunset at Pine Lake I recently picked up the 18-200 VR lens for my D80 and absolutely love it. Also got the 50mm f/1.8Dthat is also wonderful.

I’ll probably be posting more pictures on this blog, just to share something.
