Went to a "military vehicle" car show - 80+ pics and all are beyond boring, extraneous shit in the frame, etc. It was cool, and the owners beyond cool ("you can climb up there son it ain't like you'll scratch somethin...")
Example: Like this shot, except the palm trees spoiling the background, "made in china" on the tire, chain link, etc...
Along the Fox River just a couple miles from my house. It's also where my Heron/Egret shots (at least the IL. ones) come from, as well as 95% of my feeeshing shots. I started by the dam and saw one in the trees 500 yards upstream, then followed him south 500 yds (where this shot is from) where he landed near another adult and the juvenile. All in all, it's a half-mile of year round gold.
My goal is to be able to get as close as I did a few years ago, but haven't been able to. I didn't realize at the time how tough it was, and how lucky I was to have gotten what I did. I do now.
This past January when I was working in Las Vegas I took a day and went to Death Valley National Park. Good time to go with few crowds and cool temps compared to summer. The warmest it got when I was there was the mid 70's,
Nothing like holding five thousand dollars worth of camera and lens 1/2" over what amounts to pure salt water just to get a different perspective for some pictures. I wasn't even able to keep the neck strap around my neck either and it was so bright there the EVF was completely useless. Point, click and pray you got something good.
Just using your pics to get pumped for next week. The gods are smiling on us again - snow forecast got pushed off until Sat-Sun in Bryce (no snow in Zion end of this week) where we already have a room booked for 2 nights (gotta shower eventually...) Hoping to get pics like these - but with a nice blanket of snow on them.
I bought an actual video camera today, a cannon hf r800, high def (not 4K) I’ve got the “I want to shoot you tube” videos bug up my ass again and I think a regular video camera would be better than the old phone I’m using now, I also bought a bracket and a light I already had a mic from my last adventure into this
