What a Way to Start the Day!
(camera settings: 1/160 sec, f/5.6, ISO 200, 15mm fisheye lens, tripod on gently rocking houseboat. Several of you ask me to post my camera settings. Usually I don't because by the time I tweak in PS, add an action or effect, the settings are not so relevant. This shot, however, was SOOTC)
I really need to simplify my life.... you know cut out more stuff that isn't photography related!!! (I'm just kidding, just the opposite, I really need to get my 'hobby' under control.) You see, I take the photos but sometimes get so busy it takes me forever to download them to the computer. Instead, when I'm ready for another photo op, I just get a clean CF card and move on. This often results is a nice little stack of full cards sitting next to my computer getting lonely and waiting for me to give them attention. The good news is, when I finally get to them, it's a surprise and I relive the event all over again, and usually with a fresh eye after a little time has elapsed. Now I'm certainly not advocating this, but sometimes I get a nice surprise. Like yesterday I was lamenting to myself because I had run out of images to use for Scott's Sunset Sunday, but later that day when I decided to download some of the 'patiently waiting' cards, I discovered our October Lake Powell trip, and yes, more brilliantly colored sunrises. I'm enjoying those early mornings on the lake again, and even more so since I woke up to a snow covered wintry day here in my neck of the woods.
P.S. On another subject. We tried the turkey recipe I posted several posts ago and we're sold!!! This was the best turkey we've every roasted. Nice to finally learn how to do it after 40 years!
