View From The Deck

View From My Deck

It is unbelievably hard to focus my mirrorless Sony NEX-7 under this kind of lighting conditions. The lenses don't have any hard stops at infinity or the other end like my old lenses, so there is a lot of guess work.

Belle's challenge on 52 Photos Project this week is "End of the Season."  The stars are changing every night, just imperceptibly, but the view is a little different from one season to the next.

Light Trails

At the Catchlight Small Group meeting last night, we went out to try our hand at some light trails.  I tried adjusting my shot several times to get some interesting scenery with trails through it, but when I got them in the computer and got the crop tool going, I decided I liked this one with just the basics, the road, the divider, and the lights, especially those flashing LED tail lights.

Supermoon From the Church of the Highlands

Taken from the parking lot of the Church of the Highlands during our Catchlight Photography meeting tonight.  It was a little cloudy and the supermoon was peaking through the trees and clouds.

52 Photos Project: the sign says

The challenge this week at 52 Photos Project is: "the sign says".
Well, what does this sign say, a crow on a cross?  
Crows have all sorts of supposed symbolism and meaning.  It ranges from very good to very bad, depending on where you look, but I couldn't find anything specific on the web about a crow on a cross.  There were lots of pictures of crows on crosses though, perhaps implying that at least photographers feel it should be saying something, but I guess we're not exactly sure what.  What do you think it means?

I See You!

Some of the little ponds at DeSoto Caverns Family Fun Park are inhabited by large bullfrogs.
