No opportunity for a siesta or a siesta photo today, so I pulled out an appropriate one from a trip to La Jolla Cove last year. This pelican was clearly enjoying the midday sun and an opportunity for a siesta. Canon 7D, 1/1250 sec @ f/10, ISO 200 telephoto zoom at 340mm. Just so you don't think I'm a 365 slacker, here's today's rainy day photo.
Today's challenge was "Amore". It was a great day, Valentine's Day, Friday, payday, 3 day weekend, and most of all sunshine after days of gray and gloomy skies. So I captured my morning shadow cast by the lovely morning sunshine. Canon G15, 1/640 sec @ f/6.3, ISO 200, post processed using the Lomo-ish filter in Google's Picasa.
The Alabama Jubilee daylily puts on quite a show with its big deep orange blooms. I just wish they lasted more than a day. There is just one more bud left to go before waiting another elevens months for the next show. The wait just makes you appreciate them even more. Canon 7D, 1/4000 sec @ f/4.0, ISO 400, 100mm macro.
