Saturday Random Photos

The Autumn colors are beautiful at this time of the year. My Ginkgo tree leaves are turning yellow.

The Japanese maple tree leaves are turning red, it was green about 2 weeks ago.

This is the last sign of Summer.

I was surprised to see the butterfly fluttering while taking a picture of the falling flowers.  I haven’t been real happy with my EF70-200mm f/4L USM lens because of the lack of the image stabilizer and my images came out blurry sometimes. I see now that it’s my fault that I didn’t try to work with it harder and my hands are not very steady, something that I need to work on.

  1. Nice photos as always. Having the IS lens help a little, you’re not the only person is having that problem of keeping the hands still.

    I recently purchased the Speedlite 430EX II flash and finally had a chance to try play with it other day. Makes a big different when taking indoor pictures with very little available lighting. I do need to do some more reading up on things, which I hate most.

    • seeharhed, I relied so much on natural light that I didn’t know what to do indoor. I do need to practice and might have to get flash like yours. When you feel comfortable with it, do post some indoor photos to share.

      The zoom lens is great for composition and blown out (bokeh) background that a normal lens wouldn’t be able to do, like the picture of the falling flowers, I couldn’t get my normal lens to do that.
