Over on David Trampe’s Hear AND Listen blog Dave was working on a few different water droplet shots. Since I had some time to kill this afternoon I decided to fool around with some water as well.

Water Drop

Note to self, clean glass better before taking photos next time 🙂

Wow, my favorite color too! The absence of milk doubtless decreases feline traffic that could spoil the shot. Did you use continuous lighting or a flash? I finally re-shot that test with the 50mm, and it’ll be up in the next hour or two. Thanks for the mention!

Nice shots. Looks like you guys had a good time… I’m bummed we missed it.

The much-larger photos are great too.

My parents have about four pair of Cardinals that frequently feed at my dad’s bird feeders each year. While visiting for Christmas I had the chance to borrow my Uncle’s camera and take a few photos of through the family room window. We had just gotten a fresh coating of snow and it was still sticking to the branches so the red birds really popped out against the background. I think setting up a remote camera out by the feeder might be a fun experiment sometime.

Gorgeous stuff. There really is nothing like cardinals in the winter.

These are so beautiful and the clarity wonderful. You caught them enjoying Dad’s feast for them each day.

These photos express my love of feeding God’s creatures and sharing that joy with my family.

Being a Winona State alumni I get the occasional email from the alumni staff telling me of upcoming events taking place in the Twin Cities area. I had yet to go to one but when they said that they were having a pre-game social at Sweeney’s, a bar I frequent regularly anyway, I decided it was time to check one out. Also having shot my fair share of Winona State basketball games while in school I thought it would be a good reason to bring the camera along and try my hand at shooting the game. I can’t remember the last time I photographed a basketball game so it was fun to get back into the action.

Sounds fun and great pics. Did Winona win?

They crushed. I wonder if they will have what it takes to make it back to the national championship again this year. I believe they are ranked number four in the country right now and they have to be driven to make up for last year.
