A bunch of photos from the second half of July 2018

Since I’ve been feeling better, you’d think I’d be taking more pictures, right? Well, I actually have been, but I haven’t gotten any better at then resizing/cropping/exposure fixing them. As a result, I had two weeks of shots to go through for this post – about the only reason I ended up with twenty captures, and not twenty million, is because the weather hasn’t been particularly cooperative.

On the technical side of things, for those who are interested, I used my trusty Nikon COOLPIX P610 and handy dandy tripod (Amazon affiliate links – thanks for the pennies if you click through…LOL). I use the Auto Mode setting pretty much all the time, and typically bounce the exposure bias around between 0 and -2 step. Then I reduced and crop the shots, run them through PicMonkey if necessary to clean them up (can’t tell you how much bird poop I’ve deleted from my photos), then they’re ready for public viewing.

Given how much precipitation we’ve gotten in the past two days, and how much rain is in the forecast, I may end up doing “A bunch of photos from the WHOLE month of August” next…

Oh, and a belated, rabbit, rabbit!

Love the geometry of these rocks

Speaking of rocks, I call this one Lion Rock

Something startled this little guy!

Love all the beautiful sparkles in the air (sounds much nicer than pollen, right?)

    1. Strangely enough, I don’t have a separate lens for my camera. The Nikon I have (a COOLPIX P610) has a built in 60x zoom, and I was disappointed when I first realized it. After I shot my first moon picture, I was much less so.

      This is it on Amazon, if you want to peek at the specs – https://amzn.to/2OglKFA
