Okay, so this is not altered in anyway, and I didn't use any fancy color balance on my camera to get it either. Up at college we have a green flash light that we were playing with and this is one of the shots that came from it, and by no means is this suppose to be artful lol.

ATNO Yew/Green



It's a night shot from a yew tree in bloom outside my house. Carry over from Christmas. Enjoy!


Did I ever mention I'm into Green?

Quote:
It's not that easy being green;
Having to spend each day the color of the leaves.
When I think it could be nicer being red, or yellow or gold...
or something much more colorful like that.

It's not easy being green.
It seems you blend in with so many other ord'nary things.
And people tend to pass you over 'cause you're
not standing out like flashy sparkles in the water
or stars in the sky.

But green's the color of Spring.
And green can be cool and friendly-like.
And green can be big like an ocean, or important like a mountain,
or tall like a tree.

When green is all there is to be
It could make you wonder why, but why wonder why?
Wonder, I am green and it'll do fine, it's beautiful!
And I think it's what I want to be.

I really have no idea haha, its uses LED's and it has a standard white light, along with a crazy powerful laser pointer that we can see nearly 200 yards away.

Oh I wasnt saying that you had specified that it was an outdoor shot, I was just commenting on the fact that we (in the northern half of the rock) couldnt cheat and go out and snap up some greenery. :)

The village of Beli on the small island Cres, near the coast of Croatia. It's a really small town, with less than a 100 citizens. There isn't even a shop there. Still, you can have a lovely vacation there; relaxing and swimming. This shot was taken on a hiking trip in the hills.

So this is my entry, I hope it's green enough: :)

Alright so I got an entry! Took the photograph yesterday...unfortunately, my battery died and the extra battery is in the battery charger which is in a bag with my card reader...which I can't find. If I can't find it by tomorrow I'll find a way to get the photo in!

I thought this was quite ironic due to the new-found terminology of the word "green".

Haha I actually live in Australia, that was just a holiday snap. At least 1/2 green, so I thought it might count.
