A few random Sunrise photos from this morning!

(1/60s f/8.0 ISO200 6mm (35mm eq:28mm) -3 stops Nikon Coolpix P7100)

BTW, all of the colors are from the in-camera exposure.  If anything I toned a few down!

Admin posting!

The postings will be a bit irregular after Saturday or Sunday.  The Dailylife Wife and I are taking a two week Alaskan Cruise, and the costs of Internet onboard the ship is ridiculous!  So it will be haphazard wifi connected restaurants and what-not for a while.

The King of the Backyard.  Or so he thinks.  If the birds let him.

45 Years ago Today!

Man returned from his greatest adventure.  The actual walking on the Moon part was only rivaled by the fact they actually got home alive…

 

A great link for the landing on the Moon, and eventual return to Lunar orbit: http://www.kenrockwell.com/tech/2009-07-22.htm 

It is reverse chronology so scroll do and work your way up.

 

And the triumphal return: http://www.kenrockwell.com/tech/2009-07-23-new.htm#24

 

Where has our Audacity gone?

45 Years Ago Today…

…Man reached the Pinnacle of Civilization: He landed a Man (or two!!!) on the Moon.

 

This is a good link to a summary: http://www.kenrockwell.com/tech/2009-07-22.htm#20

 

You might have to scroll up or down a little to find the 20 of July section.

 

Current commentary:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ntb4eSAktnE&feature=youtu.be  (You can skip the Ad…)

 

One small step for a man; one giant leap for Mankind.  Or so we believed.

 

Where has our Audacity gone?
