Digital Photography School is running a self-portrait challenge this week. I missed getting the first done, and may play catch-up with that this weekend. However, today's theme was lighting.

April was pretty cool and cloudy here in Wisconsin. Yesterday and day, winter left, and summer arrived. I think spring took a vacation this year. Sunny, warm, and humid... with afternoon severe thunderstorms today, as well. My best light today had to be the hazy sunshine, so I loaded the camera onto the tripod and went out to my garden bench, which at this time of day/year sits right on the sunny/tree shadow edge.
