Here’s a photo that I was NOT expecting to get. I was at the local, in town, boat launch and saw these geese out of the corner of my eye. I had my new 70-200mm lens on and am quite pleased at how quick it caught focus and such a nice job too.
I look forward to many great shots with the new glass including the upcoming trip up the coast.

Diestelhorst HDR

This is my first attempt at a 1 exposure HDR using CS5. I know I have a long ways to go to really get comfortable with using the HDR tools and getting the image the way I want whether it is a single exposure or bracketed set. I did watch a nice video by Julieanne Kost on Adobe TV. There are lots of good videos there for PS and Lightroom and all the other products. Well worth the time to view.

Here’s one with the”biggest” glass I have. Not great but ok for a quick Friday shoot at the river in a place that I ended up at.

Here is a 3 shot panorama that I took yesterday at our Waterfall Meetup. It’s pretty nondescript.

365/63 – Scavenger Hunt Work

365/63 – Scavenger Hunt Work, originally uploaded by ronWLS.

Today I was out with my team members to start our part of the spring scavenger hunt. It is all about portraits and we were working on a silhouette today. We had to up the shutter with the sun behind the subject. I tried with 1/1000 and f11 but that was not the right setting though in ACR I can pretty much make it work almost right.

Dog Creek Bokeh

Saw the Dog Creek bridge for the first time earlier this year and have been waiting for the chance to get back with the camera. It turned out that we went in the afternoon right after the sun disappeared from the area. The light was pretty cool but no good sky to go with it. At the end of our time I pulled out the 50 and got this cool shot.

Crown Camera had their first of many(I hope) photo walks. I was glad to participate as I want to support the local camera stores to the best of my ability. Crown is unique in the great number of employees working there that know the photography business and share their knowledge with their customers.

Mossbrae Falls

Well I finally made it to Mossbrae Falls. Tried to make once in the winter and it turned out I was dressed way too warm and had no water with me and the snow on the tracks was way too thick. (I will go back in winter some day) It was nice to finally make it there and such a sight to see and photograph. I know I will be back someday.

Afternoon Light

Coming down from the top of the world we stopped at Brandy Creek. The sun was getting low the light was right. Wish I would have had my new tripod at this point but I didn’t. Still I like the light and composition of this.

Top of the World

Top of the World, originally uploaded by ronWLS.

Had a chance last week to catch a ride up Shasta Bally. I was on the top of the mountain about 15 years ago but then we had to walk up from Sheep Camp. It was a 4 hour hike up the road. With a four-wheel drive it was closer to 30 minutes.
It is such a great view from the top. You’re able to see Whiskeytown Lake, Redding, the Sacramento River and Lake Shasta among other points of interest. Since our drive up to the top it has snowed and I would imagine the road will be closed the rest of the winter.
