seagull-in-sunset1 

My Nikon D200 and I captured this seagull on my way to Mt. Washington a couple of weeks ago.  The sky was grey, and I decided that he (or she) would look considerably better against a colorful sky.  Hence, I went back to a sunset I had taken a couple of years ago, and did a cut and paste to combine the two images. 

Settings for the seagull were the following:  focal length:  135mm, f 10.0, esposure of 1/500, ISO 320.

Our Princess

Our Princess and Her Fiery Friend

Our Princess and Her Fiery Friend

Our Princess is now seven years old.  When we make a fire in the fireplace (usually with a store-bought manufactured log) she loves to watch the flames.  After taking a series of photos, I discovered this picture, in which the flames take on a rather curious shape…..  I did not retouch those flames at all; that was their actual shape.  Pretty cool, eh?  What do they look like to you?  (Olympus C3030Z—-3.2 megapixel, f 2.8, iso 200, 1/6 speed)

mt-rushmore-mountain-goat

I had no idea that Mt. Rushmore was also famous for its mountain goats!  (Panasonic Lumix f 4.6)  I had a great time there, seeing the Presidential monument both in the evening and first thing in the morning.  Will post one of those shots next.

Sorry I haven’t posted since Friday, but was on a father/son mini-vacation up in the White Mountains from Saturday through Monday.  Will try to post 1 or 2 photos from there over the next few days.

Yellowstone Raven

Yellowstone Raven

This raven at Yellowstone Lake is actually trying to devour the sign.  He seems to be saying, “Don’t feed the wildlife, eh…?  Well, here’s what I think about that!”  I didn’t get very many funny shots on my cross-country trip, but this is one which still makes me smile.         (Nikon D200, focal length-105mm, f8.0, iso 400, 1/3 stop underexposed)

Elk (Actually a Pronghorn) at Grand Teton National Park

Elk (Actually a Pronghorn) at Grand Teton National Park

 

I thought I’d add a few photos (more to come) of some of the wildlife that I saw at the National Parks I visited on my cross-country trip.  I loved this one because he was in motion when I “captured” him with my Nikon D200, f 9.0, ISO 320, focal length 200mm.
