Taken just 20 minutes after Sunset at Lossiemouth West Beach, close to Covesea Lighthouse. The colours were so strong and lasted such a long time. The colour also stretched all the way round from due South through West and North-West to due North. The most amazing Sunset I have seen for a long time.

I try to never go slower than 1/1000 and the higher the better, ideally 1/2500. It depends on light available of course and how high I am willing to let the ISO climb. I will go a lot higher on my A9 than on my A7r4 where noise shows up earlier.

The eagles were busy this weekend. This guy pounced on a coot right before my eyes. I won't post the gruesome results

Thanks Mark! He certainly gave me a nice pose! I'm going to miss the NWRs here in California, but apparently there are osprey and eagles a plenty in my (hopefully) new neighborhood. I retire in April and have made an offer on a place in Maine.

This was in Ephraim, Wisconsin, Labor day last year (September for those of you not in the US). Sorry, haven't taken much lately, so digging up old stuff.

Remains of a local paper mill in a snowstorm, shot with the camera in my avatar picture and on the film it says it was.

Wow, that'll be different. I'm a native New Englander myself. Don't know if I could move back there, though. Certainly not to MA. Way too crowded. Maine is far easier going, though. What part of Maine are you moving to?

And coincidentally, I'm retiring at the end of April as well. Can't wait. I really need to get back into my photography.

April 30 is my last day of work

If the deal goes through I will be living near Wiscasset, in the central coast region (less than 35K total population in the entire county), not too far from Portland. I am actually running from the heat, not racing toward it. I miss real winter.
