As promised, here are the rest of my non-fire photos from over the weekend, a combination of goats, trees, and beach rocks.
"You put that camera away right now..."
This tree had sparse, but interesting greenery on it.
Another view of the tree limbs
This tree ranged from yellow-green to emerald green.
I had a lot of trouble with the focus on this plant, I think because the individual stalks were so thin, but so abundant.
This little guy was hiding under one of the lawn chairs.
The gravel driveway made for a nice almost-parallel shot.
It wasn't a very nice day for the beach.
This seagull didn't seem to mind the weather, though. It even stopped and posed for me!
While not great for swimming, the cloudy weather did work well for this shot.

There haven’t been many great photo opportunities lately, so I’ve been experimenting with what I can capture on my camera a bit, as well as with editing photos with GIMP.
It was rainy and there wasn't a lot to photograph, so I decided to see how it would look if I took a photo out my rainy car window. I though the effect was cool, I just wish it was a more interesting subject.
I discovered that the shutter speed in sport mode is indeed quite fast, as it captured this fan running on high without any blur.
This keyboard is in need of a cleaning.
I thought I hadn't succeeded in capturing the steam, until I looked at the photo on a computer.
At least the clouds Wednesday were pretty.
I'm enjoying playing with the color filters right now, I love the effect.

Yep, I’m still playing around with my newfound love of macro shots. I’ve got a few clouds to throw into the mix this time, though.
Clouds roll in over the office
I loved the way the edges blurred on this, but the center stayed in focus.
These gorgeous pink flowers are growing between my driveway and my neighbor's.
This little guy flew in as I was taking photo of the yellow flowers, I love that the yellow on him matches the flower.
My mom is growing this fuzzy-leafed plan in our backyard.
More neat leaves from the backyard garden
At least we have one good cucumber...
This poor flower was all alone when I photographed it, but it's got some buddies by now.
My grandfather always called my grandmother his yellow Irish rose.
The clear blue skies everywhere else made this perfect anvil cloud that much more dramatic.
This is how the anvil cloud started.
My new zoom can even capture the moon during the day!
Sometimes it seems like I'm tied to this thing...
