The Original Actual Photo from Thread 1!
6

Hello Everyone,

Since some of you were not enamored with last weeks sketch rendering I thought I would post the image from which it was derived. This is a pano with a lens not wide enough to gather the entire circular nature of the Rotunda. I think on Saturday I will scavenge through all my Mission Inn images and find one or 2 that capture different perspectives. In the meantime here is the original.

Mission In Rotunda from an Upper Floor -- Evening

keep ‘em comin’

Downy Woodpecker with explosive takeoff

I found this male downy busy feeding as I walked around fogy Oakland Lake here in New York city. It ignored me as I stood still behind my tripod yet many passers bye kept sending it into hiding.

Re: Downy Woodpecker with explosive takeoff

As usual great images.  It occurred to me that physical distancing may be an advantage to you as a photographer using a tripod amongst people.  If they keep their distance they won't trip over ther tripod legs .....unless you are using a monopod....which negates my previous statement.  🤓

Thank you Bob,

I've never had a passer bye trip over my tripod legs.  I have had other photographers do so when we are packed tight and we are not doing this so yes it is an improvement

They are really cute. We get 3 different kinds of woodpeckers at our feeders.

Thank you Gabe,

We get downy and also red bellied.  I had a northern flicker visit a week ago yet it seems to have moved on

The kind of sunrise we all hope for...

I was going on a day trip this morning and noticed the sky developing color.  Soon it developed into such a deep red I couldn't believe it.  Also, it wasn't one of those sunrises that lasted a few seconds, nope it lasted quite a while.  Not only that but there were two rounds!  Such an amazing morning.

Thanks for the memories. We cycle-camped across Missouri via the whole Katy 3 years ago.

Images are of downtown Victoria, B.C, early in the morning before all the shops were opening up. This is my first foray in to street photography and I am enjoying it so far.
