Fun at the Lake

We have this AMAZING lake here in Savannah. It's called Lake Mayer. It has all these nice playgrounds and a hockey rink. Has a sidewalk all the way around it for walking and have I mentioned how many freakin ducks are there?! i tell you- if you're afraid of ducks or getting attacked by them, this is a place to avoid! lol



BUT- the place is BEAUTIFUL!!! seriously, takes my breath away every time I go.



We went as a family last monday night to feed the ducks and play around. I ended up taking over 200 pictures! Do'nt ask me why.... just happened! :) But see this baby? This is my new love.... I hadn't had a chance to play with it until this night and you want to know why the pics turned out so crisp and fabulous? It's because of this beauty right here!!! *sigh* I love my camera!!! (and my 70 mm lens) :)-



So here's a few pics from that night. the lighting was perfect, the subjects were perfect, and the place was perfect. And when you're trying to be a good photographer, those elements help A LOT! So here's a few to share. The first one is one of my favs from the night. and then I had to add the worlds UGLIEST duck. seriously.... they're scary! and then a few more! I'll put them all in an album a little later if you'd like to see more. :)

Amber, your photos are beautiful. It's funny because I JUST got this lens too!! Kind of heavy isn't it? I'm in love as well. I have taken WAY to many photos in the last week or so but it's just so fun to play!
