(SkyWatch ~ one photo down)
This week I had the opportunity to head out, with camera in hand. I spent time playing with my aperture settings. I took distance shots with the background in focus and the foreground blurred, then changed my aperture and captured the same photo with a different aperture, completely changing the look of the photo. Due to my quest to capture some amazing photos, I had the chance to see a pool of starfish. A first for me. I took a chance on trying to capture some "out of reach" photos. I took a daytrip to visit a “never been to place”. My timing was perfect. Unknowingly, I chose the day of the arrival of the migrating butterflies. Never have I seen such a magical site as I did on this day. As I stood on the trail, in the marshland, 1000s of beautiful butterflies surrounded me. I learned several, life and photographic lessons this week.
