Last weekend, son Logan and I ventured to Tulsa’s Oxley Nature Center to get a little outside time.
I also took along my LensBall, a bigger than a baseball sized glass sphere. It’s heavy and it is kind of cool. I am still learning what to do with it.
Logan was a good sport while I fiddled with all the gidgets you fiddle with on a camera.
Some things worked and other things didn’t.
We came across two groups of deer. They stayed in the woods behind brush. Made it tough to focus and get the right brightness.
To me finding deer is always a treat. I have seen more deer at Oxley than the rest of the natural areas around town put together. Sometimes they hang out in the waterline rights of way and you can get good clear, well lit shots. Other times you just have to do the best you can.
And then you edit things to draw out what you can from the images that you take.
And then all the sudden a couple bolted out in front of us. This one, and
that one!! Of course I was not expecting them and got some pretty fuzzy shots because I had slowed the shutter down in order to deal with the light better.
And I’ll close out with some blue sky since this is a Skywatch Friday post. Come join us!!
