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

This is Spring??

I'll submit these spring skies for the SPRING Community Photo Challenge. They look just like the pictures I took in December.  We're still waking up to 11 degrees and it's still a white-out out there.  I'd like to take some nice Early Spring pictures of green grass and maybe a few flower bulbs sticking their heads up through the snow... but , unfortunately, we're still waiting for that event!
Well, just look at those blue skies!    I can think of something Blue....

Lots of deer tracks though.


  1. Aww, it's supposed to snow here tonight. ;/
    Springtime is on a slooooooooooow start. I must say, you do have some intense blue skies..;))

  2. ohhh, ellen!! not what i had in mind when thinking of spring... but beautiful anyway!!! :) hopefully you'll be seeing beautiful blooms real soon!

  3. What a shame you have snow still. However that's a fabulous azure blue sky! So welcomed when mother nature hasn't relinquished winter in your part of the world for spring! At least it isn't overcast. I hope the sun soon warms the earth and you get to see your green shoots soon!

  4. Ellen..
    Thanks for calling by my journal.
    What you thought was a bird was a large stone.
    I did think it was a bird too..at first.
    Hope those green shoots begin to show soon for you.

  5. I hope by now that your snow has melted and spring is well on the way. Personally....I LOVE snow, so I'm enjoying these shots!
