De gras sprietjes zijn doorschijnend en de druppeltjes maken van die kleine zonnetjes. Schitterend, like.

Ik was vanmorgen vroeg oppad en de bermen waren vol met ijschristalletjes was zo mooi. Had helaas geen gelegenheid om te stoppen om er een foto van te schieten.

Groetjes van Greetje

Dat waren ze zeker.... ook ik was al vroeg op pad maar toen was het nog zo donker dat ik net het wittige landschap om me heen kon waarnemen.

Helaas maar de winter houdt nog even aan dus wellicht krijg je nog een kans. Ik vind bij deze foto die onscherpte eigenlijk mooier dan het scherpe gedeelte.

Slaap zacht, Erik

Green grass in January....

But, who am I to wonder. We had 15 c on Sat and Sunday.

A bit drunken view. I bet, it was taken after a N.Y. party...

Like 2.


Greetings, Tomas

Schitterende overgang van scherp naar onscherp Erik. Groeten Berend

Erik van den Ham on January 15, 2013

Hello Tomas until now our winter was relatively mild. The grass was still that green but now winter has begun and everything is frozen and white.

Ps. I never drink and shoot!

Hello cp_u and Ramka thanks for your kind comments and YSL's.

Hallo Berend was er ééntje uit een serie van velen die ik nam als experiment met scherptediepte.

Greetings, Groeten, Erik

You have taught me something Erik. I did't know there was such a thing as a bokeh lens! ;-D

Yes Erik, it's Arctium lappa, thanks for visit. Good days. cjlin

Hij voldoet prima aan de eisen van de Bokeh group - pleasant and artistic - daarbij vind ik het een uitstekende kleuren combinatie. Heel mooi Erik!

Groeten, Paul

A beautiful image that captures light in a wonderful way. Fits to enlarge and hang on the wall like a painting. YSL. You have a wonderful gallery a star. Greetings from Cri

Erik van den Ham on February 4, 2013

Hello Rosa well am not sure if to call it a bokeh lens. Almost all lenses are able to produce's pictures with bokeh in it. Lenses with a large apertures (able to shoot a picture with low DOF) can do this more easily. A 'good' or nice bokeh very much depends on lens construction and quality.

THX cjlin for the info!

Dank je Paul voor je constructieve commentaar. Ik ben het verschil in scherpte en onscherpte in foto's steeds meer gaan waarderen. Er mee spelen blijft leuk en verrassend.

Hello Cri I would like to thank you for your kind words. Photography literally means "drawing with light" and that is what I was trying to achieve here. The subject here aren't those sharp grasses but the light and shades in the out of focus. Thanks for the Y* and adding me to your favorite photographers.

Greetings, Groeten, Erik
