Tropical Waterlily

Tropical Waterlily

Here is another Waterlily shot from Florida with the Nikon D70s and the 80-200mm 2.8 lens. I wasn’t used to shooting across the lily pond and being able to get a good sized picture of a flower. The lens is pretty amazing with excellent color rendition and sharpness.

This next photo is from Key West’s Mallory Square and also uses the 80-200.

My Pansies turned to mush over last weekend and need to be replaced. The owner of the house is a gardener and understands that you can get burned by trying to push the season a little. Since th flowers are for a memorial service I have to replace them on Friday (if it doesn’t snow).

Yesterday was a happy day as we scored tickets for the world’s greatest teenager’s summer tour. Selena Gomez! We were able to get a couple of meet and greet tickets for my birthday! Her she is singing her hit song ‘Naturally’.

Gorgeous tones and light in that image from Key West.
