Yesterday morning, as is my habit every morning, I looked out of the window into the backyard. I noticed this hawk camped out on the fence enjoying a few tasty bits of what looked like a mouse. He was very vigilant. He’d shred a bit, eat it, have a look around, then repeat. I guess that he knew that even though he’s a predator, there are others higher up the food chain than he! 😀 I went and got my Nikon…

During my time in White Sands, I walked a lot. Every morning, for about two hours – up dunes, down dunes, click, click, click. I have no idea how many miles I logged, but my legs were feeling it. The first thing that I did when I returned home was to take a hike on Pinnacle Trail with Vanessa on New Year’s Day. The next day, we went to the zoo. The North Carolina Zoo in Asheboro, NC.

This weekend, Michael, a fellow photographer, went out to take photos of Spider Lilies. While we were out, we met a guy named Larry. Larry was new to photography and he and I started chatting about places to go shoot. He told me about the Lake Wylie Dam, in Fort Mill, SC, which is not very far from my house … about 15 minutes I found out … eventually. I’d never been to the dam before, so I asked for…

The cool thing about the Internet and blogging in general is that there are always voices out there that will challenge you. Here, thankfully, is no different. In my post yesterday about the P510 and printing above a certain size, I made an assertion that one would get crappy output above 8 x 10, perhaps; however, that was a faulty assertion, I have found out. After reading comments I thought: Certainly, this could be pilot error; after all, I would…
