Tree report and photo comparison

A friend asked me how my little tree was doing, and I had to admit, I wasn’t real sure. It is certainly showing signs of stress, and I am worried about it. But digging it up and bringing it in the house won’t help it much, so we’ll just have to wait and see. I read on line that it could take it a full year to decide if it wants to make it or not. It could be working on developing a good root system while the top looks horrible. Hopefully that’s what is happening, but time will tell.

I’ve been shooting the tree photos with my mini camera, a Canon Power Shot, which takes great photos, except in digital zoom. Well today I got a new toy to go with my SLR digital AF Pentax, my deal of the season, a new 75-300 zoom lens. Below are two photos taken within seconds of each other of the tree, one with each camera on its maximum zoom. I think you can see the difference… will depend on your browser I guess. What do you think?
well kind of hard to tell unless you enlarge them... but I see a difference.


  1. Love your blog. I think the second (bottom) post is clearer when I enlarge them.

  2. Thanks Janet whoever you may be. It warms my heart to know that you love my blog… I write for myself mostly, but appreciate that someone else likes what they read.

    I also appreciate your comment, and that you took time to make it. Yes, the photo on the bottom was the one taken with the new telephoto lens and is much clearer. I look forward to taking many new photos with this lens and I hope you are still visiting my little blog and get to see some of them.
    Thanks again.
