Pictures from our anniversary balloon-ride

I booked a balloon-ride for my wife and I for our second anniversary. It was the first time that both she and I had even been on a balloon. It was an awesome experience and a whole lot of fun. These are a few pictures from that trip. I’ve touched up some of these pictures with Picasa. I’m still learning and so I occasionally I’ll shoot something where the composition is ok, but the colors are all off. Still figuring out how to shoot things in different lighting conditions!

Some pictures taken with my Nikon D3000

I bought a new camera a few months ago. It is a Nikon D3000 and it is my very first DSLR. I’ve always had point-and-shoot cameras and I’ve tried to take nice pictures with them, but they were obviously lacking. I finally decided to take the plunge and buy an actual DSLR. I got a very good deal from Amazon and got an entire kit, complete with a tripod. I also bought some filters. I’ve taken a bunch of pictures with it, but I haven’t really uploaded them anywhere. These are a few that I like; there are more and I may upload them later.

Bear in mind that the pictures are somewhat large and take a little while to load (around 10 seconds unfortunately; my upstream speed is crap).

Comments are appreciated 🙂
