Default Recent Photos

I wasn't going to post anything from the current trip I'm on, but thought I might throw something out there. I wasn't originally going to take any pictures August 21st, but how could I resist?

I'm not entirely happy with what I took, but they were OK. I had been using a 16x ND filter but was able to take it off for 2 minutes, when I took these two photos.

The filter went on right after I took this one.

All 3 of these were taken with the K1 and DA300. I didn't think to change the camera setting to FF from auto, and I haven't played around with comparison enough to discover whether I could have ended up with more pixels to crop closer or not.

A couple of days later I took this (K1, DFA 28-105)

Great scenery, I was sad to leave the mountains yesterday.

Thanks! The mountain shot was a quick photo taken from a turn-out as I was leaving Jackson. I had stopped to adjust my mirrors at a turn-out in the national park and couldn't resist the scenery. It's a place where it's hard to take a bad photo, the scenery is that fabulous (at least in my opinion).

A total solar eclipse is something to be experienced, photography came second. It's the first total eclipse for me and it was awesome - well worth the effort it took to see it. It just happened that my sister had at one time lived in the path of totality and had a former neighbor who was willing to let me park my trailer in their driveway, providing lodging for my sister, her boyfriend and me. The world-class scenery was just a plus for what has been quite the experience.

Great eclipse photos!

We weren't in as picturesque a place, simply across the street in a neighbor's yard. We had totality for 2 minutes 30 seconds -- and it was an awesome experience here, too!
