Jersey Shore

I took a little trip to the Jersey shore to visit family I hadn't seen in over 40 years.  It was wonderful to experience a part of my roots I didn't realize were still so dear to me.  As usual, I took my camera and had some fun shooting in between catching up with my relatives.  I went back to the same lake several times to shoot a beautiful flock of swans.  I returned home to photograph a sunflower field, then water lilies and lotus over the next two mornings.  Fortunately the weather was 80 degrees and beautiful on those days.  During the sunflower shoot I accidentally dropped my new zoom lens.  I thought for sure it broke but the noise I began to hear was just the image stabilization.  Funny how I never heard it before.  One must become clumsy when not used to waking up at 6:00 am to photograph before the sun is too bright and the bugs get buggy.  Below are some of the swan photos I so enjoyed shooting.  I'm still editing the sunflower, water lily and lotus photos.  I will post some of those soon too.

Enjoy your weekend and stay cool!
