  1. This is a photo I can look at all day. Nice work, Linda!

    • Thanks, Ken. Your comment may offset one I anticipate from Alan (Pixetera), who didn’t want me to show extreme Florida photographs.

  2. Me too, oh, the quiet. Such nice gradations…

    • Thanks, Lynn. I just love fog, and I couldn’t get out when we had it this fall in Oberlin. It was so nice of it to hang around for two hours in the Celery Fields.

  3. I like this a lot – the heron really adds to it, amongst other things giving it a sense of scale. A ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I hadn’t thought of that, Adrian, but you’re right. If I had that long lens I keep pining over, I suppose you wouldn’t have that sense of scale because I would have zoomed in.

      • No, that’s the thing >>> a closer view of the heron would simply be … a closer view of the heron. But having the bird small in the frame like this really adds scale, and – to me – brings the picture alive. Anyone (like me!) can get in close to a creature with a telephoto and produce yet another portrait, but there’s far more to things/photos than that. A ๐Ÿ™‚

        • Thank you, Adrian. Maybe I should stop wishing for that long lens. I do think that I’ve learned more about composing with the lens at hand. This one goes from 24 to 85mm, and I’m almost always out at 85. The lens I used with my former camera went (if I remember right) from 18 to 125mm, and I was usually out at 125. My dream lens would be 18-300mm and less than 2.0ฦ’. Wonder what setting I would most use . . .

          • Well, that’s what happened to me years ago – the extremes of my 3 lenses were 28mm and 150mm, and nearly all of my (Kenyan) pictures were taken at these two focal lengths. I now know that I “see” photographically at 300mm (= x6 magnification), and since coming to realise that my photography has improved, Happy New Year! A ๐Ÿ™‚

            • Are you using a prime 300mm lens now?


              December 31, 2017 at 1:16 PM

              • Oh no, a 300 prime would be too heavy and expensive; I had one at the end of my film days but it was such a pain to lug around. I have a Nikon (Nikkor) 70-300 (see this morning’s post!) which I’m married to, and which becomes a 105-450 if I use it on the D800 in APS-C format. And I have a Fujinon 55-200, which is also wonderful, and is 84-305 full-frame equivalent haha! >>> see today’s post!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

                • As you may have noticed, I did see your wonderful post of today, Adrian. Thanks for all the information (and beautiful photographs).

                  • Yes I have noticed (tho I’ve yet to reply to incoming comments) – thank you for your wonderful words. A ๐Ÿ™‚
