Wild daises in bloom, some of my favorite flowers. There are others but not quite ready to share with all of us who visited the area. More in a week or two!
Sharee, a co-worker, taking a minute to snap the beautiful flowers that were present in the Albion Basin of Little Cottonwood Canyon.
Beautiful mountain valley flowers.
I love the silky effect you get when you photograph water with a slow shutter speed. Often times you need a neutral density filter too. These pictures are taken with an Olympus Stylus 1 point and shoot camera. It is an amazing camera. It has a built in ND filter which helped me get the above water picture. I should have used it for the flower pictures also, but I forgot about this feature until I came to the water. There are tons of other modes both automatic and manual in it. I liked the ease of the camera in its manual settings. It was not hard to figure out or change on the fly. It is a camera anyone who likes to take control of a camera (like a DSLR) but have it be small. I used both the LCD screen and the eye piece throughout the hike. If you want a great point and shoot camera that is easy to use with an eye piece, tilt-able LCD screen, and fast response time, give this one a try. I have been recommending it for awhile now. I may have to get one for myself too.
It was a enjoyable hike and one I will do again soon. Thanks Sharee for the suggestions and invitation to get out and see the grand views. I look forward to another hike. We had a good time in spite of the sore muscles!
