Day 61 of 365 – “What a…..Sunset?”

I’d like to be able to tell you this photo is of my recent trip to the wilds of the Amazon Rainforest during the most magnificent sunsets I’ll every witness.

I won’t.

Because it’s my back yard. It’s not the sun at all! HAHAHA! I tricked you! It’s the back porch light. But you probably knew that.

I learned a cool new trick today that I tried to put into use. DON’T USE AUTO WHITE BALANCE!

Day 59 of 365 – “Is That Muck?”

Well. My quest to become the next Ansel Adams took a major hit tonight. Honestly, I quite literally spent the last $40 I had on a shutter release remote and tonight I lost it. I LOST IT!
It’s difficult enough attempting long exposures with no filters but now it’s actually impossible.

I blame it on my dog. Apparently, it’s keeping a grip on his leash or the remote. My brain, it would seem, can’t comprehend keeping track of both.

It’s bad enough having to post day in and day out, photos that I know are crap but now I can’t even attempt my long exposure shots that I’ve been dreaming about for months! No…. I’ll wait until I understand it better, no point wasting a night when it likely won’t come out. IDIOT!


Here is the result on the “dark day”

The title comes from my mother licking her finger and rubbing the monitor “Is that muck?” me: NO IT’S BIRDS!
