Highway 72

 

Nikon D80, ISO 200, f16, 1/90 sec, 105mm efl, Photomatix Pro 3, Capture NX2

I love to see the clouds elbowing their way between the mountains. Caught on the way to Methven for lunch.

These little fellows are usually so quick, it is difficult to see how colourful they really are.

Finch on green

 

Nikon D80, ISO 800, f5.6, 1/250 sec, 630mm efl, Capture NX2

It was cold and wet yesterday, but it didn't stop this little visitor. Shot from the warmth of our lounge using a 'dirty window' filter :-). The lovely green background is a very out of focus lawn. Virtually no post processing - levels and curves only.
