Arboretum close-ups

I'm still trying to figure out close-ups with the new camera, but I snapped a few at the arboretum.

Time to trim back the roses. I took some pictures before I cut them back. I didn't do much with them this year, but they still bloomed beautifully!

New Camera and artsy photo

I got a new camera - a Nikon D80 - for Christmas. I've taken lots of photos and tried out lots of different settings. I am learning all about aperture and exposure and shutter speed and all that fun stuff! Here's my cat Callie.
Night Portrait setting with no flash.
Focal Length: 180mm
Exposure: 1/125 sec
Aperture: f/5.3
ISO: 1600.
Quantaray zoom lens 55mm-200mm.

Sun Drops

I love the way the sun is streaming through the branches - it looks almost like drops of water here.
