Day 163 (11 June 2012) Daises, Ferns, and Dandelions, Oh My!

Today between work and a study group, I took out my camera with my favorite lens (my 60mm macro) and shot some of the plants in my yard.  I really love that lens 🙂

Day 134 (13 May 2012) Devil’s Hopyard

Today the weather was perfect, so a friend and I decided to go for a short hike at Devil’s Hopyard St. Park in East Haddam, CT.

I didn’t shoot many photos, as it wasn’t really a photo walk, but here are a couple. I haven’t quite figured out a good way to shoot forest scenes; I will have to so some research on that, as I hope to spend a lot of time hiking this summer/fall.
