Starting with the most amazing thing I saw: Northern Harriers
There were two, a male and a female.
Really beautiful and amazing to see. They fly very low along the tops of the tall grass while hunting, letting the wind propel them silently.
Hi, I'm Tom, I like to do macro and nature photography as a hobby. I'm trying to get into more wildlife and landscape stuff. I use a couple compact, high crop factor mirrorless cameras, but I also like to play with weird equipment to try to get more out of 'bad' cameras (notably including a pink sanyo camcorder).
You can find more of my photo stuff at https://flic.kr/tfh11
Here are a couple examples of what I do:
I think this sums up me as a photo person
Camera........ but on stick
Peach tree blossoms.
Yes the tree is real.
Yes the peaches taste good sometimes.
Yes the birds eat the peaches.
Aerial photographs of tulip fields in the Netherlands, by Normann Szkop. Amazing. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/gardening/gardeningpicturegalleries/9847353/Aerial-photographs-of-tulip-fields-in-the-Netherlands-by-Normann-Szkop.html
Bonus weird stuff
1. What if I align the stars in the center of the picture but *don't* do anything to keep the other objects from being motion blurred, so it's like everything's spinning around the viewer instead??
2. What if stars in center of image aligned but thst's nowhere near the actual center of the star movement so the rotation looks weird
3. Just normal star trails
test pix look fine actually, I think this focus is acceptable
and there were definitely at least 2 meteors in my out of focus test shots... so I definitely should go out. But also it might even work fine to just do it in the driveway and not go anywhere dark and scary by myself...
