Happy Hiking Day! After suffer through a summer (3 months) of never ending 100+ temperatures autumn is here. The drought dried many of the leaves which dropped from trees in October. So this year the autumn leaf show is a limited viewing. Most of the show is on the North side on the mountain trails where it was often a tiny bit cooler and the scarce rain fell this past summer.
The worst sound! While hiking I hear dreaded thunk as the shutter mechanism of my camera dies. My heart sank and my brain screamed OMG not during spring! I take my camera on every hike and the past few weeks without it has been painful. It is as if my extra sight sense has been taken. *deep breath* I feel incomplete without my visual paint brush which allows me to share nature’s beauty.
Nine years on, hundreds of thousands of images and two repairs I guess it was about due to give out. As I have no clue how long it will take to save up for a possible repair or new camera (best guess a year). These will be the last photos for a while. If I manage something spectacular with my very old smartphone I will share.
Thank you for following my blog and leaving kind messages and likes.
As mentioned in my previous blog posting when I rushed out to see the eclipse my tripod did not follow me. An unsteady camera with big lens pointed skyward and low aperture can create a serious of unusual effects. These are my favorite unexpected images.
I am a child of the moon and have been lucky to witness many of her magical events. On this night however a serious of unfortunate events lead me to a mad scramble whose result was forgetting my tripod. I was thankful to get anything which resembled the moon. Tomorrow I will share the avanguard versions of my moon photography.
