Splish Splash... lights out!

Last Monday was a typical Monday, a storm blew in, it rained, got cold but no big deal... until about 8pm.

Then POOF.. out the lights went! Now, this happens frequently, when the wind blows. Usually a couple hours and the power company has the power back on. ...  But not last Monday.
The power was out just about 13 hours. 13 long hours!

So out of  boredom someone decided to do homework that wasn't even due.. by candlelight no less.
So, I grabbed my camera and decided it was as good a time as any to play with my white balance settings ( I ususally leave it on auto) But.. something I need to learn to use.

Candle light... I love my Nikon because it never fails me in low light ... unless I've goobered up the settings.
This is a candle behind a cold pitcher of water that condensation on the outside.  (There are actually 3 candles and an oil lamp..which you can see on the right side. )

This is what I get when I set my white balance settings to the farthest cool side I can go.. and your husband flings a rock in the window with the weed eater. Dual pane windows.. yay!
Suns up... what can I do next.... Hmmmmm these are stricktly my learning images lol.. there are many more that were deleted. However these aren't quite what I had in mind, so I'll be doing them over again.

Yes, this experiment was fun.. i'm eager to try it again!
