Green. Still.

Light is too low here.

Today we continue the theme of lush green fields that abound this muggy month of August.

Also, we have a little exercise in bad photography.  Like this first shot, for example.

While my camera has all the adjustments, gadgets and gizmos to allow more light in if only I would make those adjustments, I've not once taken the time to learn how to adjust the This or the That required. I use only Auto mode natural light when taking pictures and do not know how to edit photos after the fact. Hence images come out too dark or too harsh depending on how the stars, planets, and my spinal cord are aligned.

(Honestly, does anyone use the word "hence" anymore? Hence? It rhymes with Hortence, who probably did use that word on the way to the butter churn or the washboard. Bless her heart.)

The shot below was taken from the exact same car road on the exact same day. There's no issue with the lighting. The sky looks blue instead of drab. Go figure.

OK.  Acceptable.

The next one below is from the road that connects Haven to Aaron's Beach. Although the light is OK, the subject matter could be better. Of course I was driving so beggars can't be choosers. There was actually plenty there to photograph it's just hard to capture from a moving vehicle, I just wasn't quite able to frame everything properly and zoom in as needed. The essence of the field was really all I was after though.

Field is OK.  The house and that one pine tree are out of place (for the picture).

This last one had the elements I was looking for to make things a little more interesting, but the glare is harsh.

Where are my sunglasses?  (Probably on top of my head.)

This concludes CBW's lessons in monotony, can she please move on to another topic besides soybeans? photography.

Please feel free to explain aperture, which CBW has avoided like the plague since numbers seem to be involved--although she likes how close it sounds to rapture.

p.s. Very little sleep combined with long hours at work have produced most of this blog post up to and including the words rapture, aperture, hence, Hortence and any third-person references to self.

All that aperture stuff is too much for me, too. But some rapture sounds nice. Hence, it would behoove us to seek it.

The aperture of a lens is the diameter of the lens opening. The larger the diameter of the aperture, the more light reaches the image sensor.

Try this:

Rapture sounds better, though.
