To all ye who want to paint with light ...

I should have started this blog many moons ago as I started experiencing the joys of rediscovering the art of photography. But as the saying goes - it's better late, than never!
So, here I am, in the hopes of recording what I learn as I progress from ignorance to enlightenment; about what my eyes can see that my camera can capture; and, what my mind imagines and my camera paints with its capabilities.

Please feel free to add any comments and share your wisdom (tips or tricks) that you have picked up along the way.

And do check out my How-To and Birding pages as well.

Day 238 - Relearning the Alphabet: The Letter "Y"

"Y" is for Yellow 

This is another post to catch up on the missed ones.  This was at Lake Elizabeth in Fremont, CA.  The day was overcast and gloomy and I remember being really disappointed with my shots as I had to raise the ISO.  You have often heard me complain about digital noise on my camera, and this would be another perfect occasion to whine about it; but I shall spare you that.

This yellow divider (or whatever it is) is the perch for many a bird that's resident at the Lake.  I know I had a shot of an egret and cormorants sitting on it, but I didn't really have the patience to dig through too many pictures.  Maybe some other time.

55 mm,  f/14, 1/50s


  1. Times like this happen but you were still able to produce a very beautiful shot!! The noise is not obvious, btw!
