Peter and I were doing some ministry just east of the Tampa area a few weeks ago.  We stayed with some friends who have a large yard full of old majestic mossy oaks. I was so glad I had my camera with me!  Here are some of my favorite pictures!

They had some lanterns in the front yard. I caught the sunset through the glass.

The sunrise woven through the Mossy Oaks.

There was a chain link fence in my way, so I rested the camera lens (canon 55.0-250.0 mm) through the open link and put the timer on so as to keep it as still as possible. The aperture was f/11.0 and ISO 400.

I used the same lens for this to zoom in and also used the timer. The aperture was f/5.6  to focus on the moss alone and ISO 200.


Old Fashion Toys

For the morning shoot, Peter and I found some old-fashioned toys in the porch. We had fun staging this shot.  I used a 28.0-80.0 mm lens, f/11.0 so that all the toys would be in focus, ISO 200 and put the camera on a tripod and set the timer.  Because of all the trees the light was low.

Always bring your camera! You never know what great pictures are waiting for you just around the corner! Have fun!
