Default Spring Photo

Every Spring I take a photograph of the yard when the lawn looks about its best so that during the dog days of Summer I can remind myself how nice it looked earlier in the year! Here is the 2010 photograph.

K10D + Pentax 18-250.

Beautiful Lawn, jelpee!
Looks like St. Augustine grass. I was planning on
putting that in the front yard but, it takes a lot of watering
and we've been on once a week watering restrictions for the
past 5 years so, that kinda killed that plan.

GJ, ST,Rodney, Ronny and Dustin: Thank you for your kind comments. At around the mid range of the apertures, the DA 18-250 produces some remarkably sharp and clear images which makes it my go-to lens especially for travel.

GW: The lawn is Kentucky Tall Fescue which grows well and is fairly robust. I typically do not water my lawn in the Summer(too cheap ) unless we are devoid of rain for a while. The lawn may turn brown, but with the first decent rain, it turns green again. A lot of folks expect homes in Kentucy to have Blue Grass. Some do, but Blue Grass is very high maintenance and highly succeptible to disease. Therefore, unless you are commited to maintaining it, Fescue is the way to go! Sorry to hear about the water restrictions in your neck of the woods...it can put a crimp in the landscaping plans!

Great photo, just a small thing I noticed, you leaned a bit to the left, a rotate and crop would set that correctly?

Thanks CL...good catch on the alignment. The image was straight, but it needed some perspective correction which I have done and replaced with a revised image.
