I reworked that image. Camping under the stars in the Australian Outback.

One new and one pulled out of the files and cropped a bit:

I noticed a search for a cat profile.  One of mine was in the viewed but not zoomed showing, but it was a three quarter view, not a true profile.  I didn't have any true in earlier shots.  Cats don't appear to like them.  So, I got this one of Maude, my cat that has a coat close to the original wild Libyan cat subspecies that was domesticated.   And I cropped two of my cats fighting that had been viewed but never zoomed, trying to get something more dynamic.

This one was one of those "Gee, why didn't I add that one" sort of photos.  I cropped it a bit since one side had a headlight right at the picture frame and the other side had a stray branch.  Wanted the one headlight to show the time of day.  Shenandoah National Park, Skyline Drive at dusk.

Great shot, so atmospheric.  Did you use a flash on the tree?  My wife loves to star gaze, and when we park our caravan in out of the way places, without light pollution, she will always find time after dark to peer at the sky.   I confess to being ignorant of the heavens, I can just about pick out the plough, but that's it.

Thank you. I did light painting with my torch on the tree. Then signalled OH to turn the blue lights off in the bus and continued exposing for the sky for another 20 sec or so.

Fun to be back out shooting again.  Playing with the new (to me) Canon 100-400 L lens and my new Canon 90D Camera.

Last light on the pack ice on the St Lawrence here in Quebec City. Its a shame that there were no clouds to fill in the sky, but its still a lovely scene. Especially as here the spring has arrived 3 weeks early and it was about 14C when we were there shooting.

I love the contrast between the yellow and blue!

Nice colours !

 

Blue and yellow sit opposite each other on the colour wheel, so they are a good combination when used together (Ikea use blue & yellow in their colour scheme)

Other colours that work well together being green and magenta, or red and cyan.

 

bedtime reading !

 

You may know this already tho.

I did indeed! My initial aim was to use my extension tubes to take some close up shots of the flowers but when I finally noticed the yellow against the blue sky, it was a no-brainer to remove the extension tube and take some of the yellow forsythia against the blue sky.

Taken last night - this was one of two helicopters tasked with airlifting 7 fishermen off a trawler which had no power and was taking on water.

It may not have been a choice you had, but anyway well done for not stopping the motion of the blades.

Whenever I see that I'm tempted to look for the string.

Thanks - the blade movement was what I aimed for, as well as the winchman looking out the door.

Maybe shutter speed a tad slower Andy?
