a little bit of sunshine
There's some sunshine here this evening. I'd forgotten what it looked and felt like! It comes after a massive storm over Sydney and the Central Coast and down the coast too. Hail, very dark, thunder and lightning. Up near my son's place on the coast it was described as a mini cyclone.
It's made photos for Project 365 difficult. I haven't wanted to venture too far from home a the rain arrives suddenly with little warning. There are just so many photos one can take around the place. However, I am now just under 80%. The more I add, the longer it takes to go up a percentage point. It was quick when there were only a few photos.
I was playing around with the aperture settings this morning with the flower. A smaller opening, f stop, increases the clarity of the depth of the field. (Smaller opening equals larger number on actual setting!) I still have heaps to learn, but am making progress. This is f10.
There was just one downside. I had intended to open a bottle of wine. I was almost finished the meal when I realised it was still in the fridge. Another time perhaps. I very rarely have alcohol when I'm eating by myself, so just forgot. I have plenty in the house but prefer to share than to open something with jut me to drink it.
