Canna lilly

I was searching for something to contribute and ran across this photo. I took this photo back in June. Noticed it in the wife's flower bed in the front.  I took another photo a bit farther away but this had a better depth of field to show the flower ...

Brasstown Bald, Georgia

This is the highest mountain in Georgia at 4,784 ft. Due to the altitude and snowfall, it is closed from about November 1st to early spring. One can see four states on a clear day. One of our favorite places to visit. It's a long and steep walk to th...

The Queen is Dead...

While the late queen was catapulted into that role after I was born, I have known only her as the head of the United Kingdom (where I was born) and what was then the Empire, now the Commonwealth.I was far more effected by her passing than I expected....

Dragons and Damsels - Odonata

Back in 2014 I started documenting Dragonflies and Damselflies that were native to my area. To find most of these, knowing what habitat they frequented and flight times were key. They like mosquitos and, for the most part, marshy swampy areas or lake...

For the ancients/arthritic/or just not steady

Just totally blown away by what my old SX50 HS was able to do for me at 1/10 @ 1200mm. Image is resized but still shows the clarity from a shot where the owl was in the cover of tree in early evening.

Fun with Zoomed Images

My local camera group has a weekly get-together with a specific theme each time. This time was zooming while taking the shot. The slow shutter speeds pretty well demands some kind of support: either a tripod or monopod, to keep one element sharp.Duri...

Almost a pick

This would have been a nice interception, the official wasn't in position to catch the facemask jerk as the defender was securing the ball.  Shot with Canon 1DX III and EF 400 f2.8 @ f2.8, 1/1000, ISO 8000 to 25,600 for this series under "interesting...

Spending time with the grandson

Several days ago, my grandson, Brody Casteel, texted and asked if we could fish the Tellico River. Who could say no? Rather than take my T7, I opted to go light with a Nikon (!) Coolpix L19. I took several photos of him and the scenery. I chose this ...

Testing the Sigma 150-600 with the Canon EOS R5.

I had been observing a lot of chatter about the performance of 3rd party lenses with the new RF mount.  In particular the comments that the very popular Sigma 150-600c has focusing issues on the RF mount.  A review HERE  by popular Australian photogr...
