Unseasonably beautiful

Annoyed as I was by the transition from almost-summerlike to wintry weather over the past 24 hours, I fell in love with this scene in my backyard this morning.


Shot in Auto. Elsie chose a shutter speed of 1/640 and f4.

This and some of my other artsy shots are now available for viewing/sale at 500px. You can see them here: http://500px.com/bseinberg

From the archives: Small is beautiful

When I had to give it a name, I called it “lilthingonstem.” It caught my eye — and Elsie’s — because it reminded me of a tiny little crow’s nest.


I used the macro setting and auto mode. Elsie chose a shutter speed of 1/79 and an f-stop of 5.5.

I like this photo a lot, and it’s one I’ve chosen to sell at the company craft fair later this week, as a suitable-for-framing print and on note cards. If you saw it for sale, would you buy it?
