Minnesota 2015 Part 8

Post by Roanoker » Mon Jun 24, 2019 7:23 am

This is the moment you’ve all been waiting for: The last set of pictures for this trip! I went back to dig up three of them because I wanted twelve pictures, as usual, instead of just nine. Here goes nothin’:

It would be nice if there were a few sheep, but there weren’t any there.

I really like the colors in this shot.
Image

Always-happy sunflowers.
Image

They were trying to hide from me.
Image

A true wallflower. Maybe a fence-flower.
Image

I zeroed in on this one little group.
Image

My son is holding a credit card next to his iPhone so its camera sensors will properly capture a hot-pink flower.
Image

Another view of the grassy field.
Image

That thing must have been impressive when it was alive.
Image

This is a close-up of a mass of lichens on a big rock. I had to do something to make them less ugly.
Image

Apparently, these septarian things can be quite beautiful. Smaller specimens are sometimes polished.
Image

Many fossils can be found in this piece.

This fossil is signing off!

KCRAG should host a photographer meetup downtown.

Now, that's an interesting thought. One problem for me is that I'm not a real photographer. Yes, I do take a lot of pictures--or used to, but I don't really know much about cameras or associated equipment. I pretty much just point and shoot. My Nikon camera is smarter than I am. I'm fairly handy with Photoshop but not expert. I was a computer programmer, systems analyst and project manager in an earlier life. And best artist in high school. I am nothing now.

Thank you for your kind suggestion.
