Kayaking Blossoms.....



I took this photo when I first started kayaking, This particular year the for-get-me-nots were all over the river bank. Since then I haven't seen as many but I'm sure like most plants they go in cycles and eventually they'll be more. This is one of those photos that I don't think could have been taken if I wasn't kayaking, there are no trails through the woods so the only access would be by water. It was taken with my first digital camera, a Nikon Coolpix 950. At the time I was still shooting mostly film, it took me a while to switch to 100% digital but now that I am I'd never go back to shooting film.

Nice shot. Forget-Me-Nots are so pretty! On boardwalk where I go frequently, they line both sides. Supposedly, they are a pest, but I like them anyway.

It is hard to imagine going back to film, but sometimes I miss those photos. I don't trust CDs and DVDs anymore because they don't last forever. I lost a lot of great things because my computer can't "see" that there are files on a several of my disks now.

Beautiful flower. I think we are all ready for spring.!! I also started with 35mm and love digital, my camera easily paid for itself the first year, Film and developing got real expensive.
