Love and Purity

Purity prepares the soul for love, and love confirms the soul in purity.

I took those pictures of roses yesterday before sunset in a cloudy weather. I used Tamron AF 70-300mm and set my white balance for a cloudy one and played with its temperature colours to see the difference that it could made by.

I didn’t know how to set the temperature colours on my camera until one of very best friends of mine, Campanulla Della Anna, mentioned it in our discussions about photogaphy and also by reading this one of good articles: Understanding White Balance by Cambridge in Colour.

The picture in the middle is a RAW file and I edited it with Picassa by tuning its shadows and fill light up.

Do you like my experiments or would you like to give me any suggestions to improve my photography skills? Your comment will be much appreciated!

Special thanks to my friend Campanulladellaanna.

Have a great weekend!

When The Raindrops Set As Natural Christmas Lights

Yesterday I went to visit my friend’s place who sell Christmas trees for living. Actually I wanted to see his Water Lilies in his pond but unfortunately they all are rotten due to the heavy rain. The good news is there are still about eleven of them to come on so I am looking forward to seeing them. Hopefully the weather will be nice to them.

It was rainy day yesterday. So I walked with my friend to the field and he showed me some of his plants apart from his Christmas trees, such as honeysuckles flowers, a descendant of a Redwood Tree called Dawn Redwood, Japanese bonsai, and many more. I like to visit his land and wander around.

After he showed me some of his plants and continued his work then I started to shoot some pictures and here they are…

It’s not Christmas yet but the raindrops already set the lights off on the trees just like in Christmas!. Natural trees, natural lights, and natural ornaments. What a true Christmas!
