Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #141 Geometry

In this week’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #141:  Geometry Patti invites me to share images that feature geometric shapes.  I am having so much fun looking through my library of images, and trying to remember the correct geometry names.

I photograph hearts in nature! I see hearts everywhere. Do you?

Hearts decorate our lives.

Circles around me in Bodie California.

Curves are interesting to follow.

Yosemite National Park and Mirror Lake provided me with this image.

Reflection on Mirror Lake complete this quadrangle.

I enjoyed looking through my archive to find some geometry terms. I hope that when you are out and about you look a little bit deeper and see some shapes also.

Nature Photo Sharing Positively

Getting out with friends for a day of photography is how I get positive energy. My group of photo friends continues to grow, and our weekly shoots are great. I use Adobe Lightroom CC to organize and edit my images. I am up to date, and I set up a collection of my best photos from each outing.

I recently purchased the Nikon 70-200mm f4 lens, and I am pleased with the results. When I select a lens I take into consideration the quality of the glass, and the weight of the lens. I don’t want it to be too heavy that I dread carrying it around. This is a solid lens and it can be used with both a full frame and crop sensor camera. I use it with the Nikon D7100, a crop sensor.

UC Davis Arboretum provided the backdrop for this post. This is a place I like to return to because it changes so frequently. Today I chose to take a closer look at nature.

Couldn’t resist this amusing situation the tree found itself in!

Yellow Jacket, pretty to look at, but I kept my distance with my new lens.

Plant looked like all eyes were on me. Don’t know what kind of fruit was developing.

Past glory. The play of colors caught my eye.

Green Heart. Love!

Several walking bridges cross Putah Creek. Students have placed Love Lock messages along the way.

Happy Pine Cone Camper!

Hope you enjoy this closer look at nature. Getting out and looking at the world around me is good for positive karma. Take some time this weekend!
