The garden is becoming greener and the flowers are all blooming. These images were taken after a bit of rain. Obviously one of the models, the Snail was even more steady, than the flowers, which were moved by a weak breeze. I hope you like it. Enjoy….
Today I was able to photograph one of my favorite flowers, Tulips. While I was at it, a butterfly came and stood model for me, though poor thing was a bit injured.
This was taken with my Second Digital Camera, the Fujifilm 3.2MP. taken back in 2003-04-19
And these are images taken today with my trusty Panasonic. :)
Not sure if you remember or not, I once posted about having an old Zenit Russian camera. Since I took the pictures of it, I’ve sold the camera making the pictures, my Olympus E-500. I still have the Zenit, and got an adapter to fit it on my Canon 450D. So last weekend, I went out to the garden a took a few pictures with it, and with my Panasonic Super Zoom. I used the 300mm Zenit at f4.5, and full manual settings, and tried to use the Panasonic at f2.8 some are taken with f4. Keep in mind that the sensor size is different, the Panasonic is 1/2.3″ (6.17 x 4.55 mm), while the Canon is 22.2 x 14.8 mm CMOS sensor APS-C. Both are 12 Megapixel, by pixel count. Regardless, this post is not about the technicalities, just thought I should mention it :)
Images from the Canon with the huge lens, it was heavy and I got tired carrying it.
These are the images from my Panasonic.
Conclusion? For my purposes, the Panasonic does an excellent job, I really don’t see the need for the bigger sensor. Though I don’t mind having the APS-C with the 50mm F1.8 prime on it ;-)
This winter was pretty short, and mild, unlike in the American Continent. Where this past winter Norther America was hit pretty hard by strong winter storms, in Europe, or more precisely in Hungary, it was pretty mild. This wasn’t that good for viruses, and other bugs, and buggers.
The spring has begun, everything is green and blooming. Hope you enjoy the pictures. Click on the images, to see larger size.
I hope to get some more as more flowers start blooming, enjoy :)
A few images of the Crocus flowers. and of the lake Vekeri, near Debrecen where I live.
Image of lake Vekeri, Sepia and B&W I wanted to try something different, rather than the usual Colorful look.
The weather isn’t too logical this year, well it hasn’t been in the past 10 years or so, but it looks like Snow and freezing temperatures are over. I took a picture of a few snow flowers, after the snow dried up.
Though last year, March 15th had a nasty winter storm, as the images below show. So will have to wait it out
