+Google+ Is looking so much cleaner these days! I stayed away awhile while everyone finished venting over Trumps victory. Now it is again looking like a nice place to spend some time seeing what others are doing. The other social media hasn't finished their rage over Trump yet. Good for Plusers!

I much prefer the creative and positive environment here.

What a beautiful morning. The only distraction was the Cochise County Sheriff’s Helicopter flying maybe 150 feet above the house. It feels so good to be outside now. It won’t be much longer until it will be too hot to get out around 10 AM.

The sky was very hazy so many jet contrails, but I managed to capture a couple decent shots of the December 13th, 2016 Super Moon. Enjoy the last Super Moon of 2016! Taken with Nikon D7200 and Tamron 150-600 G1 at 600mm, F8, 1/200th on a tripod at 8:11pm in Phoenix, Arizona.

Pictures of the Venus Lunar Conjunction on December 3rd, 2016

Woke up and couldn’t get back to sleep so went out to see if there was anything to get some pictures of. The moon was a nice waning crescent so I snapped a few shots. Was a bit difficult to get exposed properly. The crescent was about 29% illumination which was causing the camera to want to over expose it in live view. I ended up taking a number of pictures with different settings.

What ended up working the best with the Tamron 150-600mm G1 lens was F8 at 1/200th and ISO 200. I didn’t see any extra detail at F11 and a bit more softness wide open.

Yesterday was rainy all day. I worked on the office a bit. Turned on the TV, wish I had left it off immediately. Murders, Earthquakes, Mayhem. Prayed the Lord would return and end all this craziness. Luckily the rain was finished this morning and was able to go out and take some picture. Decided to work a bit on macro photography. Subject is the wife’s old rust bucket a 1975 International Scout. What do you think?

What a glorious morning! Red Beard was out chirping and playing. Happy to see me. The sun was rising casting God’s Glorious Light everywhere.

The Tamron 150-600mm G1 lens is simply amazing. Such great results time after time. Never a focusing issue, snaps to focus like it has ESP to know what you want. I also am amazed by the stabilization provided by Tamron’s VC. I was able to get acceptably sharp pics using the D7200 in the 1.3x crop mode (which gives a 1.95 total crop) all the way down to 1/100th sec hand held. That is really amazing. That is at almost 1200mm field of view at that crop mode.

Going to 1/200th sharpens a bit more and 1/400th almost every image is tack sharp. With VC off I have to be at 1/1000th or higher to get tack sharp images.

The moon started out an orange red color, turning to bright yellow, and as it moved above the horizon became closer to the soft silver we love about it.
