Lake Shawnee

A few weeks ago my mom and I went for our long weekend training walk around Lake Shawnee. I immediately fell in love with the botanical garden area and vowed that next time we went to walk there I would bring my good camera. After our 15 mile walk (twice around the lake) late last month I grabbed the camera from my car and spent what seemed like an hour taking pictures of the flowers and beautiful scenery there. It was partially a photo session for me to practice shooting with the camera on manual, and partially a photo session to show how pretty the area is! Hopefully you can see the beauty despite my questionable photography skills!

For anyone who cares about photography, the first section of pictures were taken with my point-and-shoot camera while Mom and I were walking. The bigger ones were obviously taken with my SLR, and I did have to adjust quite a few of them in Photoshop because I discovered in my practice photo session that I definitely tend to over-expose my pictures while shooting on manual! I have lots to work on!
