    Micro 4/3 Peebles Island -- last day of the year

    A gray, grim day. The water going over the dam was amazing. The eagles nest looked forlorn. This was the only wildlife we found. The water flow almost flattened the rapids. Cheers, Jock

    Micro 4/3 Foul weather camera -- first light

    Thanks to the kindness of one of the denizens here, I am now in possession of a camera that will be my go-to rig when the snow flies, the rain falls, the sleet drives, etc. It is an Olympus OMD E-M1 original edition, fitted with the Olympus 14-150 MkII. This gives me 28-300 e, extending to 600...

    Advice Wanted Uh-oh, I'm at it again . . . wanted: your recommendation for a camera for "harm's way"

    Stopped by Peebles Island today on the way to church. This is what we saw: Thick, dense, moisture-laden fog. So I didn't take my big gun (RX10 Mk4) and instead took the XP90. I got a few shots, but I'm not really pleased with the technical image quality and the lack of a viewfinder (which...

    Moon photography advice wanted.

    I really need some advice on this. Maybe it's a dynamic range problem or perhaps a "difference between the human eye and the camera sensor problem, but here goes . . . We're driving home last night, come around a corner start up a hill, and there's this absolutely HUGE full moon hanging just...

    The spotter-in-chief strikes again

    The first thing you need to know is my better half, aka spotter-in-chief, is one-eighth Mohawk native American. She looks about as native as, say, an Irish step dancer, which is to say not at all. There are times, however, when she exhibits freakish distance vision and preternatural awareness of...

    Canon Once again, the G12 doesn't disappoint . . .

    Shot through the windshield on the way home, just minutes ago. (The better half was driving; calm down!) As an unrepentant, not-in-the-12-step-program sky freak, I never get tired of this stuff. Cheers, Jock

    Canon The rest of the story . . .

    For those who saw my original post on getting my hand caught in an electric car window -- Why don't car windows have a safety feedback mechanism? (gross picture warning) -- I offer this update. Just after I saw the hand specialist (orthopedics), he went on vacation. My next visit was to his...

    Why don't car windows have a safety feedback mechanism? (gross picture warning)

    As you might know, electric garage door openers have a fail-safe feedback mechanism that causes the door to reverse direction if it is closing and something is in the way. To my knowledge, electric car windows do not . . . and herein lies a tale. On July 19, 2020, at around 3 pm, my wife and I...

    After five long years . . . finally published as a nature photographer . . . see also "patient endurance"

    The theme of my early morning devotional last Wednesday was "patient endurance." I remember thinking: "doesn't sound like fun to me." At noon, coming back from a doctor's appointment, the better half says, "better check your messages." There is a call from an editor at The Conservationist...

    Canon This is what happens when you don't bring the "big" camera . . .

    The RX10 Mk4 is the "big camera" and the G12 is the little camera -- got it? The Mk4 ticks all the boxes on my great camera list, except small. Small it isn't. So a lot of times when I'm rattling out the door for an errand, I grab the little camera . . . "just in case." That's what I did...
