Here are a few shots from the front porch and then on a hike. This is a sunrise using the ist DL and Tamron 24-135.



These nexttwo areof some con trails in a sunset. Same setup.





This is an early morning moon. This time using the Sigma 100-300 DL. Its not a great lens and it was through a window so it lacks some sharpness.



Then on a hike through the beautiful forest here. This with the Tamron.



and this with the Sigma.

Very nice series! I especially like the #5 &#6--seem like they belong on the pages of a calendar!

Loved them all Glenn. Looks like a wonderful place to live and take long walks. Don't put that Sigma down too much as I've gotten some very good shots with mine. It will do well on water fowl for one. It has the almost perfect range for that.

Thanks Dawg, I'll keep that in mind. I think part of the problem is me having a hard time keeping it still at 300mm. I'll keep working on it!

Very nice - I'm always partial to sunrises/sunsets, but prefer the last two. I know what you mean about controlling a 300mm lens - it is harder. I try to make sure my shutter speed is quite a bit more than the 1/focal length rule.

Thanks Roy and Harriet. We are indeed near an airport, but those trails are from planes headed to parts unknown. We seem to be rightunder a well used North to South corridor. I am guessing those planes are coming from Frankfurt, Amsterdam, and other northern cities, going to Switzerland, Italy and placesin Africa. Good advice about the focal length / shutter speed. I will keep that in mind.
