This was supposed to be posted on the other blog, but the server is intermittently unresponsive. After waiting half the day for it to settle down, I’ve decided to post everything here.
I wanted to test the camera on my new phone (LG Stylo 5), so while I was riding around Draper Lake, I spotted these early fall flowers. Almost everything is either white or yellow. These tiny white daisies were all over the place, but this was a really nice specimen.
These tiny lavender daisies are ubiquitous in Central Oklahoma. You’ll see them peeking out of mowed grass, but this was a spectacular specimen. I’m disappointed that the color didn’t come through better; these were distinctly lavender to the eyes.
These were middle-sized lavender daisies. There were very few of these out around the lake today. Cooler weather sees them typically disappear, and we got below 60°F last night. This one must have been protected somehow.
These puffy yellow flowers are pretty new. That is, they showed up in the spring, then disappeared all summer, and came back out again just in the past few days. The plants were there all along, but not the flowers.
While the color was disappointing in a few places (there were a few shots that didn’t pass my critical eye), the camera itself isn’t that bad. Colors are weakest in overcast conditions or shady spots, which is what I had in the images I discarded. I rode hard, but stopped when something caught my eye.
