Getting Lost in Winter’s Beauty

The past few days I’ve been giving my camera a work out (it’s the Canon Rebel EOS xsi I received for Christmas).  Since this is my first DSLR camera, I’ve been amazed at the quality and clarity of my images.  Not only that, but changing lenses is fun!  Today I had a lot of fun with the zoom lens.  Next on the “get-to-know-your-camera” agenda is tripod training.  But I thought I would share some images from my shoots–some are before the big snow melt and some are after so there will be varying degrees of snow on the ground.

Train tracks in small town PA.
A lonely statue in a snowy graveyard.
Sam the puppy gets muddy at the dog park.
A crow tries to get a better look at the chick with the zoom lens.
This squirrel is making darn sure I won't get his nut!

  1. Amy…I’m officially envious of your new camera. I’m saving my pennies until I can afford a DSLR. I love the statue pic and the squirrel too!

  2. Amy,
    you are such a gifted photographer. You have an amazing eye to find something seemingly ordinary and turn it into something beautiful. Nice job!

  3. great first excusions into the joy of photography. heck, you could do just fine with an instamatic. it’s in the eye, not the camera. you have the eye.

  4. Haha…don’t worry. I keep my point and shoot with me at all times, Dirk. I’ll be posting some pics tomorrow from the P&S…but I have to admit, the DSLR is soooooooooo much more fun. 🙂
