My daughter just sent me this Easter picture.  From left to right, that's Izzy, the English Mastiff, my grandson, I don't know who the Easter Bunny is, my daughter's stepdaughter, and Lucy, a French Bulldog.

@Hammer - What a beautiful family to be blessed with!  I have to wonder, though, if the Easter Bunny got his looks from you :rofl:.

No, I don't have that much facial hair.:lol:

As promised... photos from the new cottage on Cape Cod

 

Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary

DSC_3977-HDR.jpg

A little bit about the photo, it is a HDR or High Dynamic Range. What that means is that I took three photo, one 2 f-stops under, one the exact f-stop, and one 2 f-stops over. In other words one was under exposed, one the correct exposure, and one was over exposed and then the three were combined. What that does is allow the details in the shadows to stand out and the bright areas also have more details.

 

This was first light for my new lens, Nikon AF-P DX NIKKOR 10-20mm f/4.5-5.6G VR

Diana, that technique certainly give the picture a vividness that is stunning. How long is that pathway? 3 miles?? Long walks are healthy. :)

The trial was only 1.5 miles (2.4K) round trip. Here is a link to the trials

I got crabs!

When I was walking on the boardwalk in the wildlife sanctuary I saw all these little holes on the march and my first thought was clam breathing holes, as I walked by something duck in the hole and I saw these little guys…

This one is about 2 inches (5 cm) but most of the were about a half inch (1.3 cm) big.

Diana, what HDR software program did you use to create that photo?  I have tried several different HDR software programs in the past, so I'm always looking to see what others use.

Its no wonder my photos will never be posted here after reading what you photographers  go through to take " the shot".

Frozen knees and numb fingers: A photographer's pain to capture the perfect frosty morning

Updated 23 Jun 2018, 8:24am

Chris McFerran admits he may be in a very small minority when it comes to wishing for forecasts of sub-zero temperatures and thick fog.

The weather photographer, based at Warwick in southern Queensland, was all smiles this week when the region was blanketed in its first major frost of the year, and he was able to capture an image that went viral online. 

 

The life of a frost photographer is not for the faint of heart. 

"I'll know around 4am if it's going to be worth it," he said.

"I'll contact friends on farms and they'll let me know if frosts are forming that morning."

The first two items Mr McFerran packs for his winter-morning photo missions are "a really good pair of fingerless gloves and coffee".

"I wear thermals, lots of warm clothes, two or three pairs of socks and three jackets," he said.

"Sometimes I'll take a fourth jacket if it's going to be really cold.

"All that for one shot!"


Mr McFerran said he sometimes wondered why he didn't have a hobby that could be done in front of a warm fire.

"I like to shoot low because the frost is part of the foreground of the photo, so I've ended up with lots of wet knees from getting down on the ground. And then the knees freeze as well!

"Driving back after a shoot my fingers are numb, and it can be painful.

"But it's absolutely worth it when I see the photos, and see that people love them."


This week, Mr McFerran's photo of a frozen barbed-wire fence went viral on social media.

A mild start to winter with dry air has meant the frosts have not been as severe. But Mr McFerran said he was lucky to find an irrigation device left on overnight to provide some extra moisture. 

"Because the temperatures dropped down to -3 degrees Celsius, everything around the irrigator had frozen, including the irrigator itself," he said.

"The farmer was there knocking ice off it when I arrived.

"It was pitch black when I left home. Then right on dawn, I had just enough light to see a huge paddock of white. I knew straight away there'd be icicles hanging off the fence."

By the time the photo was getting thousands of likes, he was at home with a hot coffee, reading the comments. 

"People do think I'm a little bit crazy. Someone wrote on Facebook, 'You're mad, but thanks for the wonderful photos'," he said.

Lee, I am not any good at photography, so it's rare if I get a good picture.  Years ago, I came home from work (3rd shift), and as I drove up my driveway, there was a round drop of dew on each blade of grass on my lawn.  The sun was not very high yet, and the sun's reflection off of each dew drop made it look like there were millions of diamonds shining on the grass.  I ran into the house and grabbed my 35 mm film camera (it was a long time ago), ran back outside, laid down on the driveway, and took a bunch of pictures.  Unfortunately, none of the pictures came out right (proving that I am not a good photographer.)

I do a lot more photography than when I was a regular on here

Doing some work at a number of zoos, along with doing some work with humans

I still have a "real job" -- but balancing it out with the creative efforts allows me access to some amazing opportunities for photos

 

Hoping everyone is doing well, and enjoying life.

To those of you who are into photography, I just came across a software program that I've been playing with that does some interesting things.  The software is called PhotoMirage, and it looks really neat.  You can download a free trial of it to see how it works, but so far, I've found it to be really interesting.  You set anchor points that you don't want to move, then you set points that you do want to move.  Once you've finished, your still photos will begin to move.  I am still playing with it, but I thought that I'd mention it here, in case any of the photographers here might want to try it out to see what they could do with their photos.  I figured, since it's a free trial, why not try it?
