I took these photos at my niece’s grandparent’s house at her college graduation soiree this past Sunday. Frank and Marilyn have a lovely Koi pond and the fish react wonderfully whenever someone gets close to the water. I tried several different settings with the Canon and was, in general, pretty happy with the results. Please let me know what you think. In other news, my husband found a large patch of pink “Lady Slipper” orchids near where he works. He discovered them while taking his lunch break the other day. They are quite rare around here so I will be going out Saturday morning for a hike through the woods with him to get some shots with the Canon. Then, we are heading out for another hike to Sanderson Brook Falls in the Chester State Forest. I will definitely be posting the photos I take when I get back so please look for them. On Sunday, my Mothers Day plans are to head to Amherst and meet up with my friend Irene and see the Lilac Gardens. If the lilac blooms have gone by, plan B is to go to the Bridge of Flowers in Shelburne Falls. Win/Win. Enjoy these photos of the Koi Pond and the waterfall. Peace, love and hugs!
