Good Morning May 14th, 2017 – Happy Mother’s Day!!!

What a beautiful Mother’s Day!  Too bad Heloise had to work today.  She would have loved meeting Golden Boy!  A immature male humming bird who fluoresces Gold in the sunlight!  Red Beard was pouting in the Mesquite Tree I snagged a few shots but he was so underexposed that raising the shadows became too noisy to share.

When Golden Boy was showing off at the feeder and posing for picture Red had, had enough and put an end to that.  He’s been getting fat.  It will be good for him to have a male to compete with.

I noticed for a sixth year in a row we have no oranges on the tree.  Unfortunately I’m not certain if the birds are snagging them when they are just a few weeks old or if they just didn’t pollinate.  In years past I noticed birds so that is my opinion.

On the bright side the Pomegranate tree has it’s first fruit this year.  Way cool.  We have some tomatoes just turning color so soon will be munching on a fresh picked tomato.  I am getting some seeds started tonight or early tomorrow morning so will update with some seedlings soon.

Playing with Lights, Bokeh, Depth of Field at Anthem

Heloise and I were out at Anthem shopping for some clothes for her to wear to work so I took advantage and took some pictures.  We were going to try and take a few snaps of the December Super Moon.  Check out some of the bokeh and lights at Anthem!

December 12th, 2016 Super Moon Shots

Heloise and I took some interesting shots of the December Super Moon, but with all the haze it isn’t as sharp as it could be. Later after we got home from Anthem the moon looked like it had cut through the haze and blasted a hole to shine through. I have never seen anything like this, leave a comment if you know the technical name for it.
