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

Bloggers Community Photo Challenge - Water

Water is the next Community Photo Challenge. It so happens Lar and I have just gotten back from a watery vacation. To Lake Kabetogama in Voyageur National Park.  Beautiful country.  We fished every day but only caught one fish and that was just barely a keeper.  We had a relaxing week.
Here's my submission for Water.

Waves lapping at a rock on the lake shore.



 OK.. the boat is a bit small, but perhaps it's destination is the lakeside cabin almost hidden by the tree leaves.

 The cabins at Idlewild Resort, where we stayed.  They're on a cliff over looking the lake.  No air conditioning, but we definitely didn't need it.

Community Photo Challenge - Vanishing Point

The new Bloggers Community Photo Challenges, Vanishing Point,  have been posted a while now.  And we just got back from a week at Kabetogama Lake in the North Country.   Don't forget to click on the photos, below, for the larger view.

 Vanishing Point . The clouds are vanishing into the distance over the horizon.
