I woke this morning and was a bit gloomy. Other than a couple of shots of water lilies early in the week I had no had a lot to show for my week off. While I am making progress on Shooting B&W Infrared on 120 there were time consuming setbacks this week. However when I woke and saw the sky was as gloomy as my mood, but with some strong sun behind it I know what to do. I grabbed my tripod and my camera and headed to Skylands (the NJ Botanical Garden). Cloudy days are great for shooting flowers as you get a nice glow about them without blowing out the highlights. I wandered through gardens for a couple of hours and then rushed home to my computer to see if what I had captured was as cool as I was thinking it was. Happily they were. Here are a few samples of this mornings work. Which do you like / not like? I'll probably pick something out of these for a watercolor tomorrow.

I managed to photograph this little visitor while he was eating the mulberries out of the tree in my back yard.... I wish he would skim all of the fallen berries out of the pool when he's done!

Mondays Images

Hello Fellow Artists:
Well the Infra-red I shot yesterday is at the lab being scanned. I am satisfied that I got images on this roll... but think I'll need a stronger red or even opaque filter. As soon as I get the CD Of what I shot i will share.
Here are the waterlilies I photographed yesterday morning and a Robin I managed to photograph as a bonus! Enjoy!
