Back in the garden

and clearing my head with my favourite lens. The trusty 105mm and diopters, I have always loved the different emphasis that a 105mm can bring to a photo with its shallow depth of field.

Unfortunately my Mac is giving me problems at the moment and making photo blogging hard as it crashes when graphics are needed! Hoping to send it to the Mac Doc soon, but tough to let go and not see it for 4-6 weeks.

My garden has a wonderful array of hibiscus colours and today I just spent time changing focus points and positions. The sun angles are always good for flowers in the afternoon and I love the morning light when the flowers are just opening up with the dew on them.

Its great to have the 105mm back. We also planted lot more rocket and seeds today, our little vegetable patch is coming along and by the end of this year we aim to be 50% sustainable on vegetables and fruits. We will never push to have it all as we also support the local growers around Vava'u.

Well I hope everyone had a good weekend, its such beautiful weather here at the moment thats it has been a pleasant outdoor day and only now have I gotten onto my computer as the sun dips behind the house.
