Final Farm Fotos of 2012: Still Learning


Still learning how to use my new camera, that is....
As you can probably tell by the picture above, I have not mastered the action shot.

After a wonderful Christmas with the family, we've been hibernation mode and trying to stay warm. 
Our weather went from sunny and upper 60's a week ago to damp, dreary, and 30 degrees. 
Brrrr.



Before my hands got so cold I couldn't feel the buttons anymore,
I took a walk around the place today with my new camera to get more familiar with it.... .


 Hello, Meatball!






 Cecil strikes a pose for me.... I love how he looks like he's wearing his fancy pants.






I was trying out some of the neat features of my new camera on these next ones:

Wide Angle....



Sepia....






Antique.....





I'm not sure which setting this was, but Lily is cute in it anyway. :)




The hens are on the hunt for bugs in the garden....




Lily and Edie take a moment to catch up on the latest barnyard gossip.






Daisy's pose sums it up pretty well ....


It's the "end" of another year!
So long, 2012!

    I bet there might be some You Tube channels on how to do all the fancy things on your camera. I am so excited for you & can't wait for your blog posts in 2013.

    Happy New Year to my sweet blog friend!

  4. Haha, "the 30s" sounds pretty balmy! It's MINUS 36 around here, and I'm not taking any pictures today either!!! I did yesterday though, but it wasn't quite as cold.

    I love that "antique" shot of your barn. Looks like a postcard!!

  5. Any shot of Lily would be great, and I believe she knows it too. I like a dog who is confident in who they are! ~smile~ Your farm photos are lovely, it looks like you are doing fine.
    Happy New Year.
