Hello, welcome to my personal photo blog....

I just jumped onboard with the Mirrorless technology!
An ILCE Sony A6000
The Sony E-mount kit lenses - 16-50mm f/3.5 and 55-210mm f/4.5
And I added the Sony E 30mm f/3.5 Macro lens.

I also have a Canon SX50HS.. for those Moon shots.. heh.

I started this blog to upload my own photos so that i could participate in other photo blogs to submit to. Nothing more, nothing less.

I just like taking photos of a lot of things I find interesting.. mostly flowers. I also have another blog "Phlower Power" to show off my flower photos.

Photo Blogs I submit to are in the side-box. I hope I have encouraged you to join in..

Enjoy.......... Ellen

New Photo Challenge - Autumn

The new challenge at " Bloggers Community Photo Challenge" is Autumn.  I took some Fall color pictures a couple of weeks ago, before the wind blew off all the beautiful leaves from the trees in our pasture land.
An Oak and some Birch and Aspen.

This is unedited strait from my camera (except downsized). Beautiful Fall country sky.

Distant tiny ducks in our pond.  Most of the leaves have been blown off.... but the blue sky is reflected in the water.

There, you can actually see the ducks and some Autumn reds, yellows, and golds.



  2. I love the photos with the water. The fall color, the marsh grass, the reflections and the vegetation in the foreground make these delightful images!


  3. Very nice..you have captured some great beauty in the Fall colors:)

  4. these are beautiful. i especially like the water shots.

  5. Thank you everyone, for your kind comments. I re-uploaded my photos in a bigger size and for some reason they looked washed out after uploading the first ones. I figured out the cluprit... AdobeRGB colorspace in Photoshop Elements. For some reason, if you save in AdobeRGB then upload to internet, photos look washed out, esepcially in Internet Explorer. But it does it in Firefox too!
    So hopefully, I fixed the washed out syndrome.

  6. Gorgeous Autumn images. I was too late for the Community Photo Challenge unfortunately, but I posted some of the Autumn pics in my journal anyway. Beautiful shot. Thanks for sharing it with us!
