New camera

Well Art bought a new camera a few months ago and I'm having a hard time with it. It's not a point and shoot which is all I know how to use. He tells me he bought it for me but I don't believe it, why???? For the hundredth time man...I just wanted a point and shoot. Anyway, I'm stuck with it so I have to do the best I can. I have lots of interests and hobbies but photography is not one of them.

Well now that I'm on the camera's also heavy and awkward to carry around the garden and on does NOT fit in my pocket. AARRGGHH.

So the other week I was in the garden, nice hot afternoon but a nasty cloud was forming to the North. It was dark, the wind was starting to pick up and it looked beautiful. Took a photo and this is what I ended up with.

The top of the mountain was very bright with the sun shining on it and the dark cloud was just behind it. Unfortunately the two photos above don't do it justice.

I bought myself a new camera last Christmas and I am still trying to figure it out.

Sometimes the best photos are in your mind. Several nights ago after the rain clouds cleared a bit, the water on the lake was an iridescent blue. I would have loved to get a picture of it, but I knew it was too dark to get a true rendering. - Margy
