A quick shot from the car while driving to dinner in Yountville (Napa Valley) the other night. The train tracks belong to the Napa Wine Train.

2 from Telluride this summer

Went to Telluride 2 weeks ago. Home to some of the most scenic mountains, ghost towns, and campsites. And $16 burgers. These pictures are of the San Miguel River about 2 miles downstream of Telluride. The other is the road to the ghost town of Tomboy and Imogen Pass, looking down at Bridal Veil Falls.

They look nice, but need to be rotated to show correctly in this Forum.

Its scorpion week! Costa Rica has 14 varieties of scorpions, and I think I found at least four of these (as well as some of their relatives) - - - all found at night within a short walk of my hotel room. Here is the first one I found, small, fast and hard to photograph. I usually use a tripod, but this on was always on the move so it was taken hand held.

Wow, great shot! Check your shoes every morning and examine the bed good before jumping in.

This is a photo of the next scorpion I found in Costa Rica. I was walking up the trail from the beach on the way back to my room after my night wanderings when I spot the largest scorpion I have ever found to date - - - at that time anyway. I noticed it on the side of a large rock that formed the base of the stairs at the bottom of the infinity swimming pool. And Dave, I definitely would not want this one in my shoe!

After taking this photo, I notice another scorpion, a different species, further up the trail. I get the tripod and camera picked up and head up the trail, but I'm spotted the the scorpion turns and heads off into the forest. I briefly gave chase, but had to give up after leaning something I didn't know about scorpions - - - they can be very fast when they want to be!

Hey Everyone, it's been a minute.

I leave out soon for about a year, but I'll try to bring the camera and snap some photos (if they get released) of some other countries. Should be fun!

Here's some from the summer, I'll post a few up before I'm gone for good, I'm always open to some CnC on these ones. If someone would like the raws to stab at themselves let me know!

Shane, your hummer shot is obviously a HUGE crop and underexposed. I think your better off with less of a crop and trying to get exposure right. Saturday, I took the shot below at ISO 6400, f/8 and 1/500-sec. Not ideal for hummers, but the light was that bad. I did crop some, but much less than you. I applied DxO's PRIME noise reduction, to deal with the noise from the high ISO.

Great photo of a Kingfisher in the dive. I always enjoy seeing these animated and skillful birds at work. Unfortunately we don't have that many of them in this area.
