sort of a day trip
today r wanted to go see the l0st sea, which is an underground cave with a big pond inside. we went last year, when v was much smaller and more easily bribed into good behavior with goldfish crackers.

The Lost Sea - sort of 011
this is the tunnel that is the entrance to the cave.

The Lost Sea sort of 021
this is v in the gift shop after we decided to skip the tour because v wouldn't stop screeching when r wouldn't let her climb the walls of the cave.

The Lost Sea sort of 026
this is v while i tried to keep her occupied while r bought a coffee mug, postcard, and magnet.

The Lost Sea sort of 030
this is one of the many, many shots i took with all different sorts of setting combinations on my camera, trying to catch both the flare of sun coming through the trees and the gorgeous trees/forest floor. in this shot i got a pretty good picture of the forest, but not so great of the flare. what i think is cool is that i did not punch up the colors at all in photoshop (though i did a few other things) - these are the colors the camera captured.

The Lost Sea sort of 033
in this one, the flare is great but the forest is too dark.

the turnstyle at the entrance to the tunnel.

so we tried to take the tour, but turned around before we got to the boats. they were really nice about it and gave us our money back, so i'd say we still had a good trip.

what i learned about my camera this week: that i can make the flash brighter or less bright. who knew? well, plenty of people did, but i didn't. in fact, if you have a good point and shoot you can probably do the same thing. it's really useful so that you can shoot indoors in darker conditions and not have people's faces be so bright white. or when shooting outside under a really bright sun - you can turn your flash on but turn it down so that the person's face won't be dark. i wish i'd known that when i was shooting these.
