The oddest things caught my eye while poking around our friends farm this past week.

...earthy things....

The Wood Pile


The Rock Pile


Sunflower


The Silo


Bridge Flair


Reflection


Skull


A Pig in the Garden (Started out in life as a 20 pound propane tank.)


Grain Bins (fisheye)


Fairview Farms


So Sad


Dessert (I think?)


A Hummer (ISO 3200)

Looks like you got really inspired while you were out there, I haven't seen this many pictures from you in over a year!
Photons are your friends! :-)

Thanks Frank.

Actually, I took a lot more pictures when visiting a friend in Vermont in March just a few months ago.

Inspiration came in the form of perspiration this time; it was really steamy down there. :~(

The whole East coast has been sweltering abnormally this summer. I just came back from biking, it was 32c (90f) and insanely high humidity... at 6pm. That's just unnatural.

Those are some great photos Jeff, glad you braved the heat and humidity. Nice capture on the hummingbird and the bee on the sunflower. Was the latter an early morning shot?

Thanks Tiffany. The high ISO notation was a clue. It's a bit grainy but I tried for 2 days to get a picture of the wee hummer. Time was running out so I snagged an early morning pic.

I never thought of them as stock pics, but you are correct.

Thanks!

I hope you took that as a complement, I meant it so.

I actually meant the shot of the sunflower and the bee, I was wondering if the bee was wandering or if it was still sleepy from the night. We had that happen fortuitously one time. :)

On the contrary, the sunflower shot was mid-day.
I didn't notice the insects until after I had taken the picture; they were a bonus!

We have a dozen or so sunflowers here at home but they are past the stage where insects crawl over them.
The Grackles are now eating the not-yet ripened seeds.

Thanks for the clarification Jeff. You got some really excellent color with mid-day sun on that shot then, well done.

I used the Fuji X100 for the sunflower shot.
The image I showed above started out as a RAW, had a bit of PP in Corel AfterShot where it was transformed into a net-sized jpg image. Actually, the Fuji X100 does a decent job of producing jpg's without any PP.

Original 'straight from the camera' JPG sunflower.
(Slight processing to reduce size for uploading only. Colour is 'as shot')


Post-Processed RAW image.


I added a bit more contrast to the RAW image, that's all.

Like a lot of us I really don't trust the in-camera processing completely and always capture both a jpg and RAW image.
