Every once in a while I get a hankering for a 50mm day. When this feeling hits me, I slap my 50mm lens on my camera and take a walk around. I find the inability to zoom in and zoom out quite liberating. It forces me to think carefully about what I want to capture.


Here, my plum tree was the target. I snuck up on a ripe plum and caught it before it fell. Later on, I plucked it and ate it. It's all in a 50mm day's work.

These are the only plum flowers that were fully blossoming at Kaiakuen Garden in early February. The website says ten percent of the plums on the three-hundred hectare premise were blossoming but that wasn't true. Kairakuen Garden is one of the three renowned Japanese Gardens, along with Kourakuen Garden and Kenrokuen Garden. The silhouette in the background is Kobun-tei House, a traditional Japanese-style house built on the premise. It offers a house tour.

Was out in the yard today, and noted that the plum blossoms are opening up. Although I expect a little more cold weather, Nature is sensing an end to it!

The photo is taken from the observation tower of the Plum Island bird sanctuary. Wonderful area to walk around in, and the tower provides a bird's-eye view :)

To the left you see the frozen marsh area.

It was fairly cold this morning, but I found plum blossoms when I went for a stroll.

Learning to use the Nikkor 55mm f2.8 micro lens with the R5.

The plum trees are blooming and all those gorgeous little flowers have visitors, which is a good thing for the pollen !!

I took the panoramic with my phone, hence the quality is not quite as good.


I still found it to be interesting, because it does give you a grand view of this nature area, which is one of my favorites.
