Last fall I planted a few Daffodils in an expanded flowerbed. It was a welcomed sight when their bright yellow flowers began to appear this spring.

Weed control is about long-term lifestyle choices not short-term aggression.

There are three important elements I consider when trying to take a good, long distance picture. Stability, clarity and purpose.

First, to get a clear picture, I need to make sure that the camera is stable. So, I use a tri-pod.  

Second, when I zoom in, the atmosphere tends to wash out the image. To see the image clearly, I need to take photographs on a clear day and use editing software to render a usable image.
