Sticking with my "plan," Evan went to Wal-Mart early this morning and purchased a new bicycle pump for us and aired up the tires on our bikes. It was 49 degrees with a "feels like" factor of 42. Now, the bad photography day is due, in part, to my choosing poor settings for today... I mean an ISO of 100 while the wind is whipping the plants around and I am without tripod... well, you get blurry photos. Then there is the issue of getting twelve shots (most of which are unusable) and the message: Card Full. All user errors. Oh, well.
It was fun getting out. I was able to check off the bike ride for the week... though I hope to have more.
For an update on the Azalea Trails, Christine this is the 51st Anniversary of the Trails. There are over 14 miles of gorgeous landscaping highlighting the azaleas. I have a link on the side to photos from last year. This year.... the blooms are way behind schedule with the cold weather we have had.
These tulips are beautiful, but note the azaleas in the background. They are JUST beginning to show some color. We had people from Dallas yesterday doing the Historic Home Tour for the first time because there were no azaleas to see! Good for us at the Tour. Sad for them they missed the spectacular views they were accustomed to seeing. Good news is that they will be back next year for both the Home and Azalea Tours. Hope all of your photo sessions go better than this one!
