Photo Safari

Went out with a couple photog friends of mine yesterday and just took a lot of pics.  Played around with the new gear and lenses.  This is one of the landscape shots that got under my skin.  Just simple pretty.

SUPER BIG MOON (somewhere)

Location, location, location.  When you go out to shoot the moon, you have to know where it’s going to come up.  I missed the first moonrise by 20 minutes or so.  Decided at the last minute that I needed to be someplace else. By the time I got there, it was in the sky.   Went back the next night only to have cloud cover obscure it.

Still image I took the first night (June 22, 2013).  I played around with color variations.  This stuff makes nice notecard stock.

This is an on going cat and mouse game for me.  I do it for fun.  My lens really isn’t long enough to get the stacked shot I want, so I just show up on a ridge top somewhere each year knowing I’ll get some decent shots, but it’s more about enjoying the view.

ROAD BARNS

Road trips.  The eye really only gets a glimpse of the landscape.  Set my camera at a high shutter speed and snapped some shots while passing through.  Location: Carson Valley, Nevada
