Your pickerel frog must be skinny from laying eggs yet.

I forgot to mention the sparrow that's settled into the florals.

I just got back from a trip to Yosemite National Park.

I tried to pretend to be Ansel Adams for the day.

We had great weather, but we still had a bit of haze when it came to the big valley shots.

Its easy to take neat pics when mother nature provides the striking scenery.

Those remind me of that Ansel Adams photographer. Powerful black and white photography.

Thanks! That's exactly who I was attempting to mimic.

You did it. I don't think I ever get that depth of field in any photos I take. Most of mine are a crap shot to begin with. I am doing better at macro and super macro photos.

I started getting into photos with macro images... then went to speed - objects in motion... now I am playing with wide angle depth of field stuff. That picture was taken with a wide angle lens with a full depth of field setting. If I had more time in the park, I would have liked to check out a few spots at different times of the day. Unfortunately I had to take the Valley shot in mid-day. It probably would have been much better later in the day.

Yosemite Valley is a photographers dream. Tons of people walking around with cameras snapping pictures of scenery. Its everywhere you turn there. And the valley is such that the light is awesome almost any time of day.

I wanted to mimic the half dome shot with the moon too. And there was a full moon while we were in the park. But the moon didn't come up over the valley wall until about 2 am. I just couldn't stay up that late or get up that early... I am getting old. :-)
