Thought it's a nice idea to welcome springtime 2008 with your best shots of flowers and everything else that shows us that the winter is over.

Here are two I took today:

Now post yours and show us that the spring has come to your area! :)

Spring looks a little different here in Southern California!

Flowers in my garden right...

I don't have pictures on this computer, I'll try to remember to upload from the desktop later. But I just had to say that Kirsten's first picture inspired me to go out and pull weeds. The dandilions were taking over part of the landscaping area.

We were just taking photos for a friend back east:


One is a clusture of blue flowers that circle the tree in the front.

The azaleas looked a LOT perkier when we gave them to my mother for Valentine's.

Some daffodils we put in a mason jar filled with water and a bottle of blue food colouring. :)

It took about ten minutes for it to get to that point (and it kept going for a while!).

Here are 3 from today. It is extremely windy so kinda difficult to get a good shot. I will try again tomorrow. There is a house at the top of our street where the owner is a gardener and he has beautiful flowers in his garden that are starting to pop up and bloom now.

These are from our garden.

All your pictures are Beautiful,I must say im very Jealous!!There is still alot of snow left here,I cannot get into my gardens yet,there is still ice in them.In some places around here i have noticed tulips popping through.We have had really nice weather the last few days,My gardens in the front have not really gotten any sun to melt.

I cannot wait until all the snow is gone,and we can start enjoying the summer weather,It seems we have been in winter for way too long!

So many GORGEOUS pictures! My good camera, Canon Powershot S2is croaked on me! Makes me so mad! So, I just bought a very small one that is lightweight and easily fits in my pocket. I love it because that other thing was so bulky and heavy!

I've been walking 2 miles on our Greenway. This is a pretty tree along the path.

I have a few new ones. Kirsten I love that daffodil photo.

These are from all over. We went on a hike with Artica the other day and ended up in a lovely park. 2 are from the park and 2 from the flowers inside someone's garden.

First 2 are from the park.

Thanks for sharing your pictures!

Kim, that pink tree is just stunning, very beautiful! I love the colors in your photo, so soft and light...
I'm sorry to hear about your S2, what exactly happened to it? Mine broke a while ago with an error message (E18); I have the S5 now.

kittycats_delight, great shots, I especially love the last one with the little white blossoms.

Thank you! :D I cannot take full credit for the idea, my very good friend Liz (keeppitsalive) was in on it as well. Those are her fingers in the Spanky photo! :D Spanky loves to pose! :D

k9krazee, which camera did you use for those pics?

Sonia, those ducks are so cute! :)

Pembroke_Corgi, did you take those pics in your area? The mountains look breathtaking!

I used my Canon S3.
I was actually really disappointed with how grainy they all seem to be. :/

Kirsten
04-23-2008, 04:59 PM
CountryWolf07, what a cool picture!! :D

k9krazee, you did those with the S3? Respect!! I was especially impressed by this one, the combination of sharpness and blur looks perfect to me:
http://www.zoto.com/kangashrew13/img/45/1fe4d21e9373aa5e771403fbb97aece1.jpg

I'm always having problems to get these effects!

But you may also be right about the pictures being a bit grainy, it was the same with my S2, and the S5 isn't much better. When you look at the pictures in full size, there's always chromatic noise, and blooming effects, too. When you reduce the size of the photo, it doesn't look bad, but I'm not happy with the results of the original photo.

Thank you! Yes, these pictures were taken near us, most of them were taken about 20 miles away in the Rocky Mountains. :)
