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

For SkyWatch Friday

This is for SkyWatch Friday  for the end of July...   a nice dark stormy sky.

30mm Prime lens, Aperture Priority Mode,  f/4, 1/750sec, ISO 100

I use a fast shutter speed because everything I take is hand held and the wind was blowing pretty hard that day.  Earlier, I had been taking close up photos of wild flowers around the farm and while getting ready for supper, I saw the clouds form for a storm... I ran out to snap off a few.  No Post Processing, just the jpg strait out of camera.  I might lighten it a bit, but just a touch.

Or maybe not, I like it dark. It conveys the atmosphere at that moment.
