May Showers and Flowers

It seems like it has rained most of the month.  A landslide across US 23 between Prestonsburg and Pikeville has sent me on one and a half hour detours to get to and from work this week.  One of the detours, on John’s Creek, revealed a good number of lovely farms, and this interesting church:

One of the interesting features of my Fujifilm X-T1 camera is the ability to replicate, more or less, numerous Fujifilm films.  That’s right, the company’s cameras have built-in settings to emulate, more or less, the company’s films.  Probably no film was more used by landscape and National Geographic photographers in the 1990s than Velvia, with its rich, sharp, punchy slides overflowing with color and contrast.  I shot these pictures of some flowers in Ann’s garden using the Velvia setting on the camera, as one of several rain showers on Saturday was receding.

And I took these pictures a little later just below the dam at Paintsville Lake.
