As you can tell I am fascinated with my Nikon D7000 because it handles the highlights better than anything I've ever used. Digital has been challenged by highlights. So here it is in bright sun at 1pm. Can you believe it?
Well and this thing is amazing. My neighbor dug it out of her yard 2 springs ago and begged me to take it. Its very prolific. We got a few flowers last year. But this is insane. I can't wait to see them all in full bloom. It's going to be spectacular. Of course because they are so white, I will photograph them at dusk or on a cloudy day to capture more detail.
And here is a peek inside of some of my tulips out back. Yes, it's June and I have tulips. It snowed Monday. What can I say? The thing that makes these tulips really look good is the f2.8. It's fun to see them and see the background but be able to focus on the tulips.
And the alliums are starting to appear. This is one from the small grouping.
And this is one of the larger alliums. His Majesty is its name, I believe. I can't wait to see these in full bloom and I promise to share as long as the wind doesn't tear them off their stems tomorrow.
Again, straight out of the camera only because I forgot to pump up the vibrance with the jpeg raw slider.
