Summer Solstice

Well, the longest day of the year just ended to the latest sunset of the year over here. Unfortunately the weather was a bit too clear for a spectacular one,  like the one on Friday evening, which ended with purple rain right after the sunset. So tonight I didn't bother trying any fancy landscape shots, just took a walk along the riverside with my p&s..The next sunset will arrive ever so slightly earlier than this one, and it'll be all downhill from here for the next six months. 

Anyway, this shot of eaten leaves by the river bank right after the sun took a plunge down the river is my contribution (after a long-ish pause) to the #squaresunday   curated by +Tom Golson and +Ken McMahon. Happy Summer Solstice to those on the upper side of the planet, and Winter Solstice to those down under.

Sounds like a good walk, and it's a lovely shot.  Thanks for sharing with #squaresunday  +Erkki Juurus!

Hopefully, winter doesn't come too quickly.

I just finished listening to the recent TWiP episode 404 Port Not Found. I'd say yes, the single port is enough. The new MacBook is a modern portable typewriter.
 I #want one. In gold. :)

Hopefully he manages to find the rightful owner of that camera, and kudos for trying. Honk if you happen to recognise these peeps and might be able to help.
 
Found camera. Do you know any of the people in these photos? They are on the memory card of a camera that I found, and I'm still trying to find the owner of the camera. Please help & re-share this post so that I can return the camera. Thanks.

I found the camera a couple of weeks ago along the trail up to Cuyamaca Peak. I contacted the State Park, no response; I contacted two people from the (big) hiking group that went up there to ask around, got nothing so far...

Sunday Brunch

I haven't been active in social media lately, not even in G+.
Hopefully that'll change within the next few weeks or so.
Anyway, here's a couple of snapshots I took a couple of hours or so ago. Yes, it's a pine grosbeak. There were a bunch of them having lunch in a big rowan tree. It was nice to watch and listen to their chirpy chatter while they were munching the berries, not bothered by my walking by.
The shots aren't too sharp, just quick handheld snapshots with my RX10 p&s whilst I was walking by the tree. Anyway, this nice encounter  with an eating bird is my contribution to #squaresunday  curated by +Tom Golson and +Ken McMahon, after a long pause.

Questions for the show?  - 
 
This is not necessarily a question for the show, but a question for +Frederick Van Johnson and any other member of the TWiP army who happen to own a 5K iMac and do either video or photo editing regularly.

The high-resolution screen is indeed nice, but it's also kinda glossy. Big and glossy. How do you cope with that? Is glaring a real problem? Do you see your face on the screen whenever the ambient light is bright enough?

What I have in mind is that, I'm thinking about buying one but I wouldn't want to invest in a 27-inch mirror to watch my own gob every time I try to work on my photos and videos.
A bit like when reading something in an iPad screen whenever there's a window or another light source nearby. Or just the light off the screen itself. It's a mirror.
So is the 5K iMac a big desktop mirror?

Well, maybe seeing one's own gob constantly on the screen is not a problem for some, but that's a topic for another show, isn't it. ;-)

Too bad the retina MBP has a glossy screen as well. I don't like that. But anyway, feel free to share your opinions and your real-life experiences with big glossy screens.

Sony Shooter? Get Capture One for free
This may no longer be news to some, but I discovered this just now.
In case you happen to be a Sony shooter, you can get Capture One Express (for Sony) for free, with the caveat that the RAW support is limited to Sony camera models. For many Sony shooters that might be quite enough. Download it here:
http://www.phaseone.com/PhaseOne/Downloads/Materials/Download-CO-for-Sony.aspx?下載Capture%20One(Sony專用)

But there's more, you can also upgrade the Express version to full CaptureOne Pro for mere 23€ (excl. VAT), which is not too bad.

Apart from Aperture I'm already using DXO 9, which is pretty good, too, so I don't really have an urgent need for yet another RAW photo tool. But...
Can't say I'm not tempted. Boys need their toys, right? :)

Instant Film TLR

Umm... wait, WOT???
A TLR that shoots instant film? Crazy... I mean how cool is that! ;-)
Probably a must have toy, despite the price. Right, +Frank Doorhof? Have you already ordered one? ;-)

Refueling a Pilot On Ice

This shot from February  is my contribution to the #squaresunday  moderated by +Tom Golson and +Ken McMahon. Oh and yes, the boat did get there by itself only few minutes earlier, plowing through ice from the open sea lane. I'll add another regular crop shot that shows it better.

These are fantastic, +Erkki Juurus!  The regular crop gives me a much better appreciation for the first photo.  Thank you for sharing with #squaresunday !

Yeah, you'd better take a photo. Just in case the insurance company won't buy your story about how exactly your car got totalled –by an overtaking airliner.

Drone Racing
Why of course. It was inevitable that someone would come up with this, eventually, wasn't it. I'm not much of a Star Wars fan, but got to admit, that looks like my kind of idea of nerdy fun. :)

Looks kinda addictive and expensive but then again, most motor racing is.
A group of drone pilots in France have found a very different use for their custom-built camera drones than your typical, beautiful or incredible aerial im
