Default SKBís Photography

I have been contemplating for a while now on creating this thread as a means of sharing some of the other photos I take apart from ones of Pumpkin which I share on her thread Ė and seeing that itís a New Year I thought this would be the ideal time to create this thread.

I really enjoy taking photos as it a lovely way to capture memories but also a way to take a snapshot of something which simply catches my eye Ė this normally includes flowers, foliage, wildlife, landscape to name a few. I use my Canon PowerShot SX530HS bridge camera to take my photos Ė although I have had my camera for a year and a half now I am still finding that Iím learning about as well as also still experimenting with all the setting on my camera!

The Moon and some Butterflies

On New Yearís Day I visited a local garden near to where I live and see their flower themed Christmas light again before they took them down Ė and seeing as I have membership so can get in free Ė I thought it was a lovely way to spends the late afternoon/early evening and was a perfect opportunity to take some photo too. Whilst taking some photo of some of some of the lights I noticed the moon was in it full moon phase Ė as the sky was really clear and still Ė so I really wanted to capture its beauty. It took me a little while with some trial and error to get a good clear detailed photo opposed to a blurred glowing ball Ė before I was successful Ö


After I got my clear photo of The Moon, I began to be a little creative using both the moon as well as the trees to capture these photos too Ö


Whilst in the tropical glasshouse I noticed around some butterfly feeding stations not expecting to see any due to it being late I was pleasantly surprised to see a few Ė some hanging down from undersides of leaves whilst another enjoying some orange. Iím hoping to go back later this month during the day and hopefully see some more butterfly even watch some flying about as well as take loads more photos. But here are 3 photos of 3 individual butterflies which I was happy to see Ö

Great shots of the moon, I really like all of the nice creative tree silhouettes against the moon but I think the moon alone has to be may favourite there.
Lovely butterfly & really good captures!

Wildlife

Today I thought I would share a few photos of some wildlife that I took back at the end of October (although the Squirrel was beginning of December). Pumpkin has given me good training in taking photos of wildlife which moves as quickly as she does!

Beautiful photos I especially like the moon - was it a supermoon? I know there was one in December and another one due after Christmas. Where it is extra large as closer to the earth than usual.

Lovely pics again SKB, I love the robin and the squirrel but I think the squirrel is my favourite, just love the way it looks against the tree and the orange of the leaves

Wow, I just love all your amazing photos! I especially love the moon by itself and the moon with all the tree silhouettes. Capturing such detailed moon photos are quite a challenge and your expertise and artistic eye definitely did the moon's exceptional beauty justice, SKB! You are truly a very talented photographer, and I definitely look forward to seeing more of your great pics. Thank you for creating this lovely thread and sharing your great talents with all of us.
