A good start………..
I arrived in Amherst, CT yesterday afternoon at the end of a long airport day, but immediately enjoyed the company of two dear old friends, Bill Durrence, and Bob Watts. We were joined by a friend of Bob’s from the area and our new TSR for New England, Alex. We had dinner and shot the sunset from a beautiful 840 foot peak overlooking the Connecticut valley. The haze made a landscape tough, but was perfect to tone down the setting sun for some flower shots, (above). You know i don’t shoot flowers that much, but last night proved once again put any subject in great light and the result can be pretty amazing.
I shot the D800 hand-held by running the ISO up to 1600 and 3200 to get really fast shutter speeds, the wind was also blowing the flowers pretty hard. I waited for lulls and let the shutter speed make the difference. These are not clinically well made images, just too much wind, but it was a very nice evening with great friends and the photography was secondary. Enjoy!
Somebody’s looking at you baby…..
O.K. gotta go, it’s time to……..
Sorry! Had to do ti!
