Hummingbird

I’m Back!

It’s been a while since my last post.  After my last air show things have slowed down a bit (at least with the camera).  Other than family get togethers, I haven’t done a lot of photography.

Summer isn’t really one of my favorite seasons.  Usually I try to just get through it and prepare for Fall.  During this slower time I enjoy going back through my photos from the past and editing them, and if they are good enough, share them.

One of the things I recently purchased for my up coming Eastern Sierra trip is a Trigger Trap.  This is a combination App for my phone, and an adaptor that connects my phone to my camera.  The app allows me to control everything from a single shot, to various types of interval shooting, including timelapse.  I did a quick test in the backyard and so far I’m impressed and can’t wait to see what it can do!

In addition to working with my photo’s, I have been taking my Olympus E-M5 with me in the backyard.  There’s a Hummingbird that’s been teasing me.  I call my E-M5 Hummingbird repellent.  It seems that every time I get it out and ready, the Hummingbird won’t show up!  That’s ok, I enjoy the challenge, and have managed to get a couple of shots.

 

I’m going to end this post with a new favorite photo I recently shared on several sites. It’s a favorite because I think it really captures the spirt of one of the special places that I enjoy for photography (and fishing, dog walks, and family time). This is Silver Lake, on the June Lake Loop in the Eastern Sierra. It seems like yesterday, but this was taken last year, right after one of several snow storms we were privileged to experience!

That’s it for now. Until next time, Happy Shooting!
