White Iris in my garden

Good evening…

First of all I must thank our Heavenly Father for giving us a beautiful day. It was cloudy, but now and then the sun shined and some of the flowers opened.

Today between the closed flowers I discovered small flowers that I have not yet captured. I am super excited to see how they came out on the big screen.

We had a change on our itinerary today. We did not go to Wupertal. It is gravel road all the way to there. Some places the road is nice, and other places it is not good at all. The roads are not that busy and phone reception is not good. If it was only 20km I would still go but 136km is just too far.

We went to the Hantam Botanical Gardens then we went to Nieuwoudtville for lunch and afterwards we went to the Nieuwoudtville falls.

Well I am very tired. But before I go to bed I still have to do my daily Gaelic lesson of 15 minutes.

Have a fabulous evening and sleep tight.

Getting out of my comfort zone

My go to lens is my Canon EF-S 18-200mm. I hardly use any the other lenses in my bag. Maybe I am just lazy or set in my ways. After I worked through my Advanced Module for Landscape and Travel Photography I decided that I need to start using different lenses. I have to get out of my comfort zone.

Our Flower Road Trip is ideal for doing just that. So on this trip I am going to try to use all my other lenses and not my go to lens.

I have enough lenses in my bag to choose from and they are all 100% suitable for landscape and flower photography. I have used my Canon EF-S 10-18 mm macro and Canon EF 50mm lenses for flower photography before. I however have not used my kit lens, the Canon EF-S 18-55mm for flower photography before.

Today I tested it and I am very happy with the result. The other positive about this is that my camera will be lighter and easier to handle.

I will try to keep you updated on how our days went. I must just remember to take some photos with my cellphone too…. When I have my boyfriend in my hand, all other technology is non existent for me. It is just the two of us and nature…

Wish me luck and please send us some positive vibes for the week ahead.

Have a wonderful weekend.
