The weather had been so cool and rainy that it was late this afternoon before I went outside. This was taken about 7:30 pm, about 30 minutes before the sun set. It is a little sycamore tree that is just now leafing out. It was taken with a Canon Powershot A540 on automatic. I may have had the maco setting on. The flash was off.
I took this picture of a rose after I came back inside. The sun had set, but it wasn't dark yet. I had the light in the room turned off, and the flash on the camera was off. I had the vase setting in front of a south facing window and used the macro setting on the Canon PowerShot A540.
I took this picture of a frog or toad last Wednesday, May 7th. I forgot about him until after the sun had set, so it was darker than I wanted it to be. I wanted to take his picture without flash, but it was too dark, so I had to try to keep from getting glare from the flash or the overhead lights. He is sitting in the window well of my sewing room. I cropped the shot, and I may have had the macro setting on, but I can't remember. Taken with same Canon PowerShot A540.
