Gem and Mineral Show
We went to the Gem and Mineral show on its last day a week ago. There were many spectacular displays and way too many cool things that we could have bought, usually for way more than we could afford. This first image is a UV lighted gem display showing their fluorescence. This image was taken with my 24mm lens at 1/45 second at f/2.8, ISO 3200.
My sweetie couldn't resist buying some petrified wood. This group had a very nice collection and they had three fewer pieces after she was done with them. This image was taken with my 24mm lens at 1/250 seconds at f/4, ISO 800.
While she was tempted by polished gems (which I was calling "rocks") she found this display with some Onegite which is now on display in her classroom. This image was taken with my 24mm lens and an exposure of 1/350 seconds at f/4, ISO 800.
