A quiet week-end out of town

A quiet week-end away from "the daily hazzle" can be worth its weight in gold. Getting out of town for a couple of days is pure heaven. In addition, one can poke around with the camera and see what can be found.
For example, one can find a red rosebud,
or a white rose.
An inspection of the blackcurrant bushes reveals that things are going well,
but the last finding was the most important - wild strawberries!
PS For those of you who use the new interface that Blogger-in-draft started yesterday: Beware of disappearing pictures and other phenomena!

Your photographs are beautiful and very close to RAW in some instances. I tried to leave an answer about that on my blog where you asked the question and also brought it here.

All are shot in RAW but then the camera also shoots one as a JPEG. It is the JPEGs that can be used to go through all the pictures to see what you have.

If you do not have the JPEGs then you would have to process all of the pictures in RAW to see what you got because they show up as pictures or icons and not thumbnails.

I hope this answers the question better. RAW captures a lot more information than just a JPEG or other file format.

No it is almost the same. You should have no problems if you either have the Canon software that comes with the Canon cameras to dump the RAW files in to convert them, or, you can just double click on the icon if you have PhotoShop and it converts them or opens them for all the preliminary work you might want to do. Or, you can open them that way in Photoshop and just say Open Image and it opens it as a regular JPEG files in Photoshop. I always go through what I can while in RAW and then when done tell it to open in Photoshop.

Any questions you guys might have I am no expert but will try to help.
