    Hark's 2017
    How times flies! Apparently I haven't posted in my own thread in over 2 months. I've been working on a new wall calendar for my church like I made last year so most of my photos are from there. It was nice to take a break and go elsewhere today.

    So today I decided to give Auto-ISO a try after @Don Kuykendall explained the settings in another thread (thank you so much, Don!). I've used Manual Mode in the past but not with Auto-ISO, and I WILL say I like it better than straight Manual Mode. Since I prefer using the +/- exposure button, it was pretty seamless to work with. I just need to keep watch of my ISO and shutter speed until I can make the shutter adjustments on the fly.

    Here were a few from today's outing:

    This must be a relatively new pedestrian walkway even though the beams appear to be rusted. The boards (most likely artificial) appeared to be brand new. At the far end, it's obvious they are still working in this area.

    This is the Parish House that is part of an Episcopal Church. I love the architecture of this house and the church (which isn't displayed here).

    Hark's 2017-dsc_3366-low-res.jpg

    This tree stump sits right outside the Episcopal Church. There is a lake immediately behind this which isn't visible, but this stump must be nice to sit on to watch the ducks and fishermen. I was amazed with my Nikon 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5G lens. I certainly haven't tired of using it. Wide angle images are something I really enjoy especially when used in this manner--with a large foreground subject.

    And this is a railroad bridge that crosses the Delaware River into New Jersey.

    We pay big bucks for our gear and it is sometimes smarter than we are. I like to figure out how to do what I want and let the camera take care of the rest. My new toy is a Variable ND filter and I am loving it.

    I have a 10-stop ND filter that I'd like to try on some trickling water, but first I need to find the tricking water. Have fun with your variable ND filter.

    I got the Singh-Ray Variable Neutral Density. It goes from 0 to 8 stops. What is so nice is you can pick your shutter speed and aperture and by looking in live view turn the filter till you get the look you want.
    I was at a waterfall recently and tried a variety of shutter speeds till i got the look I wanted jut by adjusting the filter.

    Will keep that in mind when I try out my ND filter.

    Must have missed posting a few May photos.

    Tried out my fisheye lens--this is going to take some getting used to. I need to learn more about the types of subjects that will work best with it.

    Hark's 2017-dsc_5577-low-res.jpg


    The Delaware River Bridge that connects the New Jersey and Pennsylvania Turnpikes developed a crack in one of its support beams. It was closed for a couple of months while being repaired. Unfortunately I couldn't get any photos of the crack, but these were taken after they reopened the bridge.

    The underside of the deck didn't used to look like this. It must be some type of temporary covering.

    This was taken on a different outing. This is the ramp near the boat dock area of Core Creek Park. Was still trying to find suitable subjects for the fisheye lens.

    Cross-posted from my thread on the Nikon 300mm lens. These were all taken with a Nikon 300mm f/4 AF-S lens coupled with a Nikon 1.4 TC. Am looking forward to more outings with this lens/TC combo!

    The female mallard duck was raised by someone locally--the duck now resides in a local park. She allowed me to get within 10-12 feet. The male (hybrid mallard) was fine with me being close, too. He seemed to take his cues from her.

    The female quacked so the male woke up, and both got up. She was stretching holding her leg out behind in the photo below.

    And these are from a Vietnam Veterans event going on through tomorrow. They planted thousands of small flags as a tribute to those who have died serving our country (not just from the Vietnam War).

    The flag below is hung under a pavilion.

    Hark's 2017-dsc_3352-low-res.jpg

    There are several of these silhouettes on display. Not sure if they are made from wood or metal but are flat.

    I took this from the other side of the park. It is a magnificent view of the flag even from afar.
