Garden Aglow

We braved the cold again today, this time in 19 degree Fahrenheit cold to visit the Idaho Botanical Garden.

  1. i love the statue photo! i'm wondering about the light aberrations in photos one and three though, do you know why that happened? (in the waterfall photo i see floating blue dots above the lights, and in the third photo it looks like the green tree behind your head is ghosted upside down between you and kyle.)

    2. I know, I just spotted those today. It has been driving me nuts. I need to do more research. It was a good nikon lens. It wasn't an easy night. I had the lens wide open, and by good lens I mean good for a beginner. apparently that is fixable later, I just need to learn that part yet.

    3. it is a weird effect. were you using a UV filter, or any other filter on your lens? it seems like the light is reflecting off some outer lens element, but inverted...maybe a filter could cause that type of ghosting? although i always have a filter on my lenses and i've never gotten that before.

  2. What a cool way to ring in the new year! Looks like you were bundled up for that cold weather. I like the scarf on the statue and the blue light stream that was created.
