AAAAH

So we always go to the doggy park around sunset - there are loads of huge trees there and the sun is always twinkling through them with lovely Golden Hour light so I figured tonight I'd try for some sunbursts - you need a high F-Stop but compensated with slow shutter speed and/or high ISO, and careful positioning, and it can be tricky.

So I'm fracking stoked that I got this DOUBLE SUNBURST. AAAAH

Two views of a rainbow during a rainstorm a few days ago (first of the season for southern California).

There is so much wrong with this photo - over-exposed, not sharp, high ISO, shooting almost in to direct sunlight, fog - and yet I love it.
The rainbow comes from water vapour condensing out of the air in the low pressure area over the wing.

I'm not sure if I'm going to use this, or re-edit it, but here ya go...

Tummy view (the one in colour) is a wee bit shakey but not too bad. Here is the orb weaver spider I was waffling about over at @WelshPixie , 'big camera' pics (Nikon D7000 and a Tamron f2.8 90mm macro lens).

Went to a river last night with the camera to try some long exposures. They're okay, but need to find a spot with better water activity. :D

Taken with a Nikon D7000 and processed in Lightroom.

Started processing the pictures from yesterday's impromptu roadtrip. Had my 300mm lens on for wildlife shots so I was taking shots of the road with that lens through the car window - which fortunately was clean for a change XD

Here's a phone pic from inside the car just as we stopped and it dropped the rabbit. photog.social/media/7-6RDQxEAn

This shot could have been waaaay better, but there we go, heh.

Turned into a dirt track road and this jackal buzzard was just trying to take off with a rabbit roadkill. Startled by the car, it flew up and started slowly climbing while I scrambled for my camera, which was off and not set up or anything, so I just flicked it into auto to get a shot before it flew too far away.
