It Doesn't Get Any Better Than This... Iowa in January 2011

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Cardinal Realty ~ 319-400-0268

Generally January is the month when I ask myself what made me think relocating to Iowa was a good idea. That's every year except this year that is! Today I took time out from my market reports and spent some time out in the sunshine. Brown Deer Golf Course in Coralville is a two minute drive from where I live and I figured I'd be sure to find some golfers out in this 50 something degree weather today. I did run into someone leaving the golf course when I took this shot, but other than that I struck out with that idea. I enjoyed the sunshine nonetheless. I'm starting to wonder whether winter is going to show up at all this year in Iowa. Although I should maybe keep my mouth shut or I could jinx it!

We have had an unbelievable warm winter.  Which doesn't make me happy.  But, to each his own.

Aah Andre, really nice that you stop by. This photo was taken with a Canon S95 point and shoot camera. It's the camera I always have in my bag when I'm out and about. Great results every time.

The problems arise when I use the Canon t2i. On this particular day I took photos with both and the ones taken with the t2i didn't turn out nearly as well. Of course it's not the camera, of course it's me and that's what I have to work on. I'll be re-reading some of your older posts later to remind me which settings I need to use to get good photos. Thanks for the reminder - sometimes you need a shove to get you going!

Hi Denise - I guess it's like anything else - you just have to spend sometime with it to learn the pros, cons and limitations.

Keep taking picutres! ;)
