Daisy and Ant

Taken earlier, this photo has no processing except being cropped and edged.  I almost missed the ant in the upper middle of the blossom.  This was taken with the point and shoot Olympus camera I took to Minnesota.  Hope you all are having a great week!

Camera settings: Olympus 7010, f/3, 1/160 sec., ISO 64, focal length 5 mm.  No flash.

Sunset at Island Lake

Another shot a little later at Island Lake in Minnesota.  This photo was processed in Photoshop Elements by adjusting levels and adding a frame.  It was such a beautiful evening!  I didn’t fish, but loved the lake and the ride we took on it.

Minnesota Birch

I love the birch trees in the Minnesota woods.  This section of birch was taken on Island Lake.  I processed in Photoshop Elements by adjusting levels and changing to b/w.  I did some burning and added a frame and text.  Hi to the Gertzens of Moose Lake, Minnesota!

Island Lake, Minnesota

I have been gone on a week long trip to Minnesota.  What a beautiful state!!  I’ll share some photos that I took with my daughter’s point and shoot Olympus camera.  This one is of a dock on Island Lake.  The property belongs to some good friends!  We took a ride on the lake in a pontoon boat and it was heavenly!  What a great way to spend a summer evening.  This photo was processed in Photoshop Elements by adjusting levels and adding a little orange gradient on the upper right side.

Camera settings:  Olympus Stylus 7010, F/8.5, 1/80 sec., ISO 64, focal length 5 mm.  No flash.
