I love the lake at night!

    Gorgeous photos Jess. I have to ask, do you use any filters on your lens?

    Reply

    • Jessica — July 31st, 2011 @ 7:18 am

      Thanks! Uhh.. I honestly don’t know what a filter is? I don’t think I have one, I just have a regular lens?

      • Meg — July 31st, 2011 @ 11:51 am

        Haha, the colors are so vibrant, that’s why I asked. Filters cut out a lot of the glare. I am still fiddling with my DSLR to get colors right without filters. You’re just that good (whether you’d admit it or not ;) )

    YAY for getting your ‘real’ camera!!! =)
    Thanks for letting us peek into your getaway, looks like you’re having a blast!!

    All the pictures look awesome! I’m with you, as long as the picture comes out nice I’m happy.
    Not sure of names, filters or anything else, I just point and shoot then cross my fingers. :-)

    Have a fabulous time!

    Look at you, fancy photographer. Those tomatoes look amazing. I’m obsessed with the yellow and green zebras. They are as close to candy as vegetables come.

      I don’t have a point and shoot – only my DSLR and iPhone. Before I got my DSLR I was using a Canon that was over 3 years old. I honestly do not know anything about cameras.

    I love that last shot of the lake at night. I’m super jealous!

    The drink looks fabulous–can’t wait to try it. Pinnacle whipped cream vodka is one of my all-time favorite alcohols. It’s smooth enough to be taken straight, and it mixes very well. My favorites are super easy: root beer and Pinnacle tastes just like a root beer float, and orange soda and Pinnacle is the most delicious dreamsicle. I guarantee you won’t even believe you’re drinking booze (until one or two drinks later maybe).
