Susan vs Stumps

When we purchased our little house in GA the backyard was a jungle of ivy, 4-8 inches of leaves, and tons of unwanted plants, especially privets. Privets are weeds that grow like and as large as trees and proliferate at an amazing rate. After Susan cleared much of the underbrush, we started cutting down the privets. This left a couple of dozen stumps. Every time it rains, she has gone out with a shovel and pried out the privet stumps one at time. Here is her bounty of stumps.

The great outdoors is one of my favourite genres of photography - Nature - let's go out there and get some shots of our little corner of the planet. Remember, your shot doesn't need to be at par with a National Geographic photo-essay, it needs to show us a scene that you wanted us to see. It could be a small babbling brook, or a wheat field out in the country. How about a shot of the tiny bird that grabs breakfast from your window sill each morning ? Or golden hour clouds shot from your apartment building's terrace? Nature shots aren't restricted to wildlife out in the boonies - you could take Nature shots in urban areas too. Want to try something different ? How about a night shot ? Or one with high shutter speed to freeze motion ? There's plenty of ways to take some great shots in this genre - what you will need, however, is tons of patience and time to get a good shot. So, breathe in, breathe out and think about what and how you want others to see what you're currently seeing. Nature Photography is here to make us feel connected with our home, this pale blue dot. so don't forget the old adage: "Take nothing but pictures. Leave nothing but footprints. Kill nothing but time.
