  6. Oh, wow, those are stunning photos. I haven't been to a rose garden in eons. Now, I have a sudden desire to be surrounded by rose bushes (preferably without too many stinging, buzzing things nearby).

  7. Ah! You got me with the title and the roses, yours are prettier than mine...:D This is beautiful photographie Nat...Wow wow!! I prefere macro shots to regular pics, yet they have their place but the view better be nice like Oliver's playground. It is a private piece of land and will soon be developped ie...highrise condos.

    The only problem I have is Oliver forgets his name or who I am once I let him loose there, I get scared he will get lost, it's like "what ?? all this land for me???? i am gone, bye!!! :P Mom who?

    Anyway, those are georgeous shots, I am changing to aminus3, they truly render your photos the way you shot them, I will post photos on my book blog like you but ad a sticky post towards aminus3.

  10. Andi- It wasn't a huge rose garden but they had quite a few different kinds so it was fun seeing all the colours. :)

    Teresa- Thanks. I think my favourites were the red ones and the light pink ones, but they were all pretty.

    Nancy- Thanks, I actually ended up with a few decent photos so I'm sure I'll have more to share. There actually weren't any/many buzzing, stinging things around so it was a very pleasant day out.

    Madeleine- LOL. I thought you might like the title of the post! :P
    These pictures were taken with my regular lens, but I do have lots of close up macro ones too that I'll post one of these days.
    That's too bad that the land is going to be developed. :(

    Janet- Thanks.

    Booklogged- Having a better camera has certainly helped but I still have lots of duds and am still learning the various settings. My husband gives me tips sometimes too which helps. The beauty of digital though, I can take loads of photos and pick out the best ones later.
