All todays efforts were taken with the Lumix TZ7
There are a few short lanes / tracks left in the village where one can pretend there are no buildings. This one leads to the field where we saw the lambs.
Signs of things to come:
The first strawberry flower (growing in the greenhouse)
The flowers on my dwarf plum tree. It only had two flowers last year but this year things look more promising.
Having at last found how to set the bracketing on the Lumix I have experimented taking shots at +/- 2/3 EV and decided to see what the result would be if I processed a couple as HDR using Photomatrix Pro. Considering the photos were taken hand held the program did a great job of matching the three shots which make up each picture.
A Daffodil (not a lot of difference with this subject)
A succulent with the low sunlight shining through the plant. (A much better subject)
Somebody was not amused when I burst out laughing. Bobby had decided to push through a miniature weeping tree which is covered in catkins. Maybe he was doing his impression of a Lincolnshire Yellow Belly.
It's a good job he doesn't suffer with Hay Fever.
How shall we manage?
