Woke up and couldn’t get back to sleep so went out to see if there was anything to get some pictures of. The moon was a nice waning crescent so I snapped a few shots. Was a bit difficult to get exposed properly. The crescent was about 29% illumination which was causing the camera to want to over expose it in live view. I ended up taking a number of pictures with different settings.
What ended up working the best with the Tamron 150-600mm G1 lens was F8 at 1/200th and ISO 200. I didn’t see any extra detail at F11 and a bit more softness wide open.
Yesterday was rainy all day. I worked on the office a bit. Turned on the TV, wish I had left it off immediately. Murders, Earthquakes, Mayhem. Prayed the Lord would return and end all this craziness. Luckily the rain was finished this morning and was able to go out and take some picture. Decided to work a bit on macro photography. Subject is the wife’s old rust bucket a 1975 International Scout. What do you think?
What a glorious morning! Red Beard was out chirping and playing. Happy to see me. The sun was rising casting God’s Glorious Light everywhere.
The Tamron 150-600mm G1 lens is simply amazing. Such great results time after time. Never a focusing issue, snaps to focus like it has ESP to know what you want. I also am amazed by the stabilization provided by Tamron’s VC. I was able to get acceptably sharp pics using the D7200 in the 1.3x crop mode (which gives a 1.95 total crop) all the way down to 1/100th sec hand held. That is really amazing. That is at almost 1200mm field of view at that crop mode.
Going to 1/200th sharpens a bit more and 1/400th almost every image is tack sharp. With VC off I have to be at 1/1000th or higher to get tack sharp images.
The moon started out an orange red color, turning to bright yellow, and as it moved above the horizon became closer to the soft silver we love about it.
The Super Moon was out last night and it was the closest it has been since Israel returned to their land. What a great time to remember to pray that the Lord Blesses Israel and through them Blesses all of us.
Happy 2016 Halloween!
Ahh!!! They are eating my flowers!
They must be starving poor doves. So little green for them to eat. I just let them be the flowers will recover and be even more beautiful next week.
The petunias have started blooming!
