waiting....










My first run-around with my new camera.
It seemed as though every where I looked...things were waiting.
Waiting (to be made into pie), waiting as to be ready to harvest, waiting for the wind to blow so it could scatter.....
~~~~

No...the last post was from my cell phone camera.
This is my new one. 
And I have a ton to learn. 
I am not a figure-it-out person when it comes to gadgets, buttons, instructions.
Hopefully that will change.


I'm just waiting.

Debbie said...

Liesl said...

Apples...that's when I wish we lived in a colder climate as that is the most popular fruit in our household.
Grapes...I was just telling hubby last night we should plant one or two vines on the patio!
Wheat..I love my Weet Bix for breakfast!
Have a blast with your new camera!

I love the wheat..Something you don't see growing in this area of Iowa. When I was younger I loved watching the lightening bugs glowing in the wheat, when I lived in Ohio. Wheat just has the most wonderful golden color when it's ready to harvest.~!
Have a Tiggeriffic Sunday~! ta ta for now from Iowa:)

darlin said...

Wow, look at you go with that new camera. I LOVE the wheat shot and the rest are also great. I still use my auto functions most of the time, I'm still waiting as well... for the time to learn more about my camera!

Have a great Sunday!

I think you already know what you need to do: Your gift as a photographer has nothing to do with the equipment. Rather, it has everything to do with your sense of composition and visual storytelling. And on those fronts, you've always had remarkable vision.

The new camera will simply allow you to expand your horizons. Based on these "first light" shots, it's going to be an incredible ride.

Gorgeous shots ... more are waiting for you !

Lynette said...

Looking good...you will learn that a Canon becomes an extention of yourself.

Your new camera takes beautiful pics....I know learning the gadgets is not easy (to me anyways) Just keep waiting:)

Bill S. said...

Just one life - full of many adventures and friends. Great pictures and good luck with the new toy.

Farm Girl said...

Just beautiful. That is why I haven't got a new phone or a new camera, I am not a gadget person at all and I just ate having to learn all over again. I would say though, you have got it. Those apples make me want to make a apple pie too.

Elizabeth Grimes said...

Oh beautiful!

Buttons said...

Oh my gosh Dawn I now know we are more alike than I ever knew there was hints all along but this post confirms it. I wrote a story about "Waiting" last week with almost the same idea and photos this blew me away. I love you fancy new camera photos. I have to get me one of those, I should show my girls your story about this wonderful gift. :). Awesome my friend. B

Samantha said...

Gorgeous shots..especially love the wheat and dark skies.

Gail said...

Seems to me, you don't need much instruction...great job.

Mike said...

Looking good. You've figured enough out about the camera to take some nice shots. I wouldn't fret about figuring out anymore.

Kat said...

You are going to LOVE your new toy! Speaking from experience, I encourage you to play around with the settings and not just shoot everything on auto. You'll be amazed at what you can do!

Looking forward to many more pics from you - have fun!

roobo69 said...

Mmmm. I'm sure you're going to have a whole lot of fun with your new toy!

Clint said...

Great work, Dawn! I'm looking forward to seeing more of your talent!

Hilary said...

It seems to me that you've already figured out plenty. The equipment sure helps but you've already got 90% of what it takes to make lovley images.. and that's exactly what these are.

Jack said...

Well done, Dawn, especially the apples. Then again, I love love love fresh apples. It is the only good thing about the arrival of fall.

Alan said...

Get you, the Queen of bokeh with your new toy:-) That corn/wheat shot is pretty special!

Farmchick said...

Looks like you are doing great! The more you use it, the easier it will become.

Country Mouse Studio said...
