album from our camping weekend in WV

I have so many photos from this weekend's camping trip to West Virginia that I wanted to share, but instead here is the "guest-pass" link to my Flickr album:

I hope you enjoy looking at them and don't mind me posting the link! Please CC any of the pics that you want to, especially the Eva pics! Smile

very nice! I was looking at them at FB. I noticed the white caterpillar. That's pretty cool! So um...does that one turn into a moth? Lol I'm so clueless when it comes to stuff like this. Smile But since moth is in its name and all. I bet Eva had a good time huh? tfs!

Gorgeous pics, Amy! Those sun flares are absolutely beautiful. How do you get them to flare out like that so consistently? Everytime I try for one, my sky just gets blown. Sad

Thank you!! Yes Loida, it does LOL...it turns into this moth:

I love moths, there is an amazing amount of diversity of pattern and color and fuzziness (even in the adults!) Smile I love to ID new species every chance I get.

That white one USUALLY has long black tufts too but apparently some individuals just don't have them:

Krista, I set my aperture to the highest or near-highest number (high 20s/low 30s depending) to close it up, and then adjust my SS until the meter is centered; however sometimes I need to ignore the meter because it might not give me enough detail/color in the foreground, so in that case I ignore the meter and lower the SS. Hope this helps!

Great series of shots, you have a real flare (no pun intended) for nature and Eva is a doll!

these are SO NICE! I think my faves are the ones of Eva in her pretty pink boots in the sand. I love how you used the warm light. It creates such an emotional response when looking at the pics!

TFS!

Thank you all! Eva just loved doing that, and wading and everything...she looked so cute. I also thought those shore photos were neat to play with in processing, like a touch of vintage or warm B/W etc. I think I'll be making a little photobook with just this set...and possibly a collage of her on the shore...

I saw some of these on FB. Wink love the two chairs, cute! and you sure have some nice bursts going on. my favorite is the one in the yellow leaves. I just looked at the double burst, and had to laugh because I tried to capture the same thing today! I didn't even see yours until just now. mine are still in camera so I don't know how I did. the big dipper over the resort is cool!
