Every Opportunity

Liddy and I were down to Van Lierop Park this morning – practicing the art of rolling out of bed early – for our morning walk.

We weren’t there for anything really special, just a chance to get out and enjoy the morning air and to check what the park looks like for our field trip tomorrow morning. We wanted to make sure that any of our members who want some coaching on how to use their cameras would have some good subjects.

So, I put on my 100-400 lens knowing there were lots of small birds about and here are a few of my captures.

Didn’t capture any prize-winning shots, but that wasn’t the point. The point was to see if the Lupines and other wildflowers would be available for you to capture a prize-winning shot. Look forward to sharing tomorrow’s morning walk with you.

Photographing waves at Cape Disappointment State Park

Many viewers have requested information on how I photograph my waves at Cape Disappointment State Park. To hopefully help those interested in photographing there I have provided information below that I use when planning my trips to photograph the wave collisions.

These are methods I use to plan and are certainly not an end all for planning a trip there. Others may use other methods that work for them. There is not one way to plan and photograph the wave collisions. This just happens to work for me.

I hope you find this useful, and all the best.

TPS continues to do very well in PSA Competitions

Results from Round 3 of the PSA Open and Nature Interclub Projected Image Competitions (PID) are in.  TPS is in Group B for both divisions (these determinations are based upon our scores from last year). TPS continues to do extremely well.  In the Open Division we ended up placing 10th out of 25 clubs from all over the world.  In the Nature Division we were 11th.  This marks the end of the 2020-21 competition year. Club standings are often only separated by one judges point.
