The landscapes

Mostly with these I was playing around with a shallow depth of field, which was a fun experiment. So the photos come in pairs with the focus changing.
For some of you if will come as no surprise that I practiced on fire hydrants. But for others, let me explain that my youngest used to be OBSESSED with fire hydrants and she actually has two full photo albums of just fire hydrant pictures. When friends and family go on vacation, she gets fire hydrant pictures from all over. She has pictures from over a dozen states and 3 foreign countries. The obsession has faded somewhat, but she still wants to be a fire fighter when she grows up, so she can learn to hook up the hoses and turn the water on.

Settings: SS1/4000 f/1.8 ISO 100
And some others from a walk around my neighborhood:

Both are ISO 640 and f/9 but the shutter speed is different. The first is 1/1000 and the second is 1/2500.
One more depth of field experiment:

Settings: Both f/9 and 640 ISO 1/1000 and 1/640 SS
And a few other random shots I kind of liked:

An abandoned bird's nest. Had to hold the camera high over my head to get it. Settings 1/80 f/9 ISO 640.

Reflection of mountain peak in the snow (cropped) Settings: 1/1000 f/10 ISO 640

Shadow of a paper snowflake on our kitchen blinds. SS 1/4000, f/2.0 ISO 640

Practice shot of doll baby foot. Settings: 1/1000 F/1.8 ISO 400

The baby feet are spooky only because I thought at first it was a real baby with plasticky feet. Cool pictures!
