    I haven't posted in a while, so I thought I'd share some photos taken on a beautiful afternoon around our house today. Rhododendron is the WV state flower. NEX-5R + Sakar 135/2.5. ISO 100 & f/8, with varying shutter speeds.

    So this is my first quick attempt at posting an image. I know there are good instructions about how to post properly (and I have read them in the past), but I am "winging it" on this one! If needed, I will fix tonight ;)

    Oy! Trying the fix now:

    Some more from the same floral family. Flame Azalea (Rhododendron calendulaceum). Sorry, these were shot with a (gasp!) Pentax. I shot some with the 18-55 on my 5R, but I liked these better.

    Lol. It's been raining for what feels like 40 days and nights. I have resorted to shooting toy jeeps and wet flowers. :)

    Double LOL. We had about a week of "April showers", but it appears we may be in for a hot, dry summer.
