In the Dark of Morning…

 

Doesn’t that sound like a great opening for a scene? I’ve been messing with trying to capture a picture of lights that mysteriously illuminate trees to one side of a home. My problem is I can’t tell when the lens is focused. It’s too dark for me to see. But I thought these were interesting anyway.

Only in reality, they are much more clear! 🙂 <3

And here is a roadrunner at the pizza place where I had lunch yesterday. No camera, just my phone. And I saw those interesting birds that I have no idea what they are when I was near home. Some kind of water bird with black heads, really long snake-like necks, and their bodies rest beneath the water. They dive for fish. Three of them in the most beautiful pose with water fountains behind them and all standing on a rock. There was no place to park, no camera, and I’m sure if I just parked on the road to try and capture them with my phone through the windshield even, they would  have flown away. I even had the idea of heading back there on foot, but the last time I tried that, the animals (fawns that time) were long gone.

I was also playing around with fluorescent “white” African Irises in oil painting filters with Photoshop. 🙂

I’ve been trying to find the skyrocket holly to plant, but no luck.

Okay, back to the book!!! It’s waking me up at 4, keeping me from going to sleep. I’ve got to finish it so I quit thinking about it! And get on with the next one. 🙂 I think it’s another Silver Wolf book. I can’t remember. lol

Mushrooms in the Dark

mushrooms with a flashlight 900  005.png

I saw these mushrooms the day before and wanted to get a picture of them because they were so interesting. But I got busy, and I didn’t take them. Then when I took the puppies out in the rain in the dark the next morning, the mushrooms were still standing. I thought how neat they would be to take a picture of them in the dark. So with a camp lantern that doesn’t put off much light, and a flashlight, I proceeded to set out an outside doormat on the wet grass, get low, and take some pictures. I think I needed to pull the flashlight back a bit, but that was it on the mushrooms. They have now all collapsed. We had hard rains all night last night and it wreaked the damage. I looked for any new ones, but didn’t see any.

I love mushrooms to eat. But for these, I’m happy to just photograph!
