Time To Play Catch Up Again

Once again I’ve let the blog languish without updates for way too long (over two months!) So here are some of the photo highlights to get all caught up.

This was taken three weeks after the ones above. Amazing how quick it turns green around here.

There that takes care of the month of May. I’ll put together a couple more updates for June and July.

Mayflower Beach

Yesterday I took Tessa and the camera out to Mayflower Beach. Tessa ran around the beach like a crazy dog and I had to keep my eye out for the eagles circling. Luckily she let me know about them by barking at them.

Here are the photos I kept from them and hopefully a little story behind how I got them.

When we first got to the beach it was raining a little bit. As I got down there and turned around looking back towards the parking lot there was a pretty nice rainbow. I set up and took this photo and after processing I noticed that there was a really faint second rainbow above the more noticeable one.

Double Rainbow

The small path out to the beach was pretty flooded with a puddle at least 1.5 to 2 feet deep. I had to carry Tessa through it. As I was leaving I was feeling abit adventurous and set up my tripod in the puddle to take a couple of photos.

Catching Up Part 3: Summit Lake

Here is yet another catching up post. For these shots we were on a hike out to Summit Lake here on the island. It was a gorgeous 5 or so mile hike out to the lake. It was cloudy the whole day for the most with the Sun breaking through occasionally but unfortunately not while I was taking photos.

This was my first really long hike with the D610 and the Peak Design sling strap and it performed admirably. No discomfort at all even with the 20-35mm lens on it which weighs a total of around 3.5 pounds.

Here are the photos:

More Catching Up

Too cold out right now for a walk so I figure I’ll update on here and try to catch up. This might be a really long post with a lot of photos.

Tessa and I have been getting out more for long walks usually to Fort Abercrombie and Mill Bay Beach because they are easy to walk to and a lot safer because of the bike path along Rezanof.

These first shots are with the D610 and a mix of lenses.
