Quiet Thursday’s: Very Quiet
It’s been a funny week. I’ve been out taking photos a few times and I’m off to Sorrento for the weekend. Looking forward to spending a bit of time down there and taking photos around there. I’m also teaching the Astrophotography class on Saturday night, so that should be good. The weather is looking okay, so hopefully we will get some good shots.
I wanted to give you a link as well today, Susan from The Insatiable Traveler asked me if I would give you the following link, The Elusive Desert-Adapted Lions of Namibia and the Man Who Loves Them, as she wants to bring some attention to the desert lions. I know you will all go and take a look at it for her.
I only have a couple of photos for you today and they are both long exposures and taken on the weekend. The first one was of the Melbourne Star at Docklands. I wanted to see if I could take a photo using the Firecrest 16 from Formatt Hitech and see what I could get with it. I wanted to see how the wheel would look with a long exposure.
The second image is from Banyule Flats. I went there the other morning to do a sunrise shoot. Unfortunately there was too much cloud to really get a sunrise, but I did notice that the clouds were moving quite fast. Just before I left I went to a different spot and put the Lee Big Stopper on. It wasn’t too bad, I think I got the clouds going in a good direction. The time might have been a bit too long, but I’m starting to understand that more. Trial and error, you have to love it.
I have my meeting today for my book, I’m a bit nervous about it, but I’m sure it will be fine. I hope you have a productive day. Take care.
