a moonset II

This was a very difficult shot for my camera, the Nikon Coolpix P530. It doesn't have the capability to keep the shutter open long enough to get the quality I want. The camera is fighting to dim the crap out of the moon while struggling to get any light at all near the lake. I... Continue Reading →

No dice with my Coolpix

*Please remember that the Nikon Coolpix P530 I keep discussing on this site was bought used.  I had no testing done on it to see if it was 100% when I got it.  With that said there is a very slim chance that I am discussing a camera that doesn't work as well as a... Continue Reading →

The results from last night.

Last night was amazing!  The shots I recovered, less than amazing.  I got my tripod and other stuff setup and organized before midnight.  It was chilly out but there wasn't any wind to blow the cold down into you clothing.  There was a little fog hovering over the lake, making it look like a simmering...
