Technical and home made photography stuff!

Day 16

This is RainSpirit RV Resort, where we are camped out for a couple of months.  (CLICK to enlarge; BACK to return!) The red arrow pointing horizontally indicates our friends Robyn & Walker’s place.  The vertical arrow pointing at the building is our trailer.  It is right behind the building.  The 2021 arrow on the left […]

Day 003 ~ 14 years of a daily blog!

Here is another eagle photo.  This one is clipped from a 4K video I took of it.  It is a 100% crop (actual resolution as taken, cropped down).  The first one is without editing. Pretty good quality for a video sample. ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>

Day 002

As promised, a little about my new Camera, the Canon M50, I got from the Dailylife Wife fo Christmas.  It is from Canon’s first “mirrorless” camera line.  It has a crop sensor, like the 7D and my M2 mirrorless and it is very small and light.  They are currently building a full frame sensor mirrorless […]

Day 326

I am at my friends’ place in Phoenix.  As optimistic transplanted /\/\onTanans, every fall they fill their backyard with water in desperate, but vain, hopes of creating an outdoor skating rink…I got this after the water had dropped about a foot…

Day 324

The view from the storage place, looking north towards Sedona.  A one photo panorama.  Click on it a couple times to enlarge it: BACK to return here! ~Curtis not in /\/\onTana???  {!-{>

Day 302

People often wonder what Polarizing filters do.  Here is some of it: the darken skies and saturate colors!  The first photo is with a polarizing filter set on the lowest polarization. The second photo is set to the highest polarization. You can also eliminate reflects with polarizing filters. ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>

Day 295

We stopped for lunch in the north end of the Hayden Valley.  There were a couple of bison out there somewhere.  We were going to go on to Fishing Bridge and maybe back via Old Faithful, but there was a serious accident at the Sulpher Cauldron, and it was a four to five hour wait… […]

Day 294

Back to Yellowstone!  It was kind of a cool, gray day, but I got a nice cellphone panorama of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone.  Click on it a couple of times to enlarge it, BACK to return here!   Here is another view of the lower part of the Canyon. And…here it is after […]

Day 292

Deer down by the new industrial park above Giant Springs.  A two-photo panorama. ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>

Day 284

Another panorama of the inside of the trailer.  (hmmm, we might have to christen it with a name…).  You can see how the removal of the bunks opened up a lot of space, even with leaving the half wall! Click to see it larger; BACK to return! ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>
