This is a “postcard” picture of the Portland Head lighthouse from over 10 years ago (D50) taken from a whale watch boat. I shot and shot from a moving platform until I nailed the light in the tower. My question, would you have done that or simply Photoshopped it in?
The Vanadium King
Back side of 'the Reef,' up and through North Temple Wash. Temple Mountain commands the scene; mere humans have come and listened, have retreated, and still distantly yearn for higher things. The Vanadium King and the Uranium Queen struggle by on $140 a year.
Anyone Else Weird Like This?
My son was giving me some crap as I was sorting through my equipment. He noticed that I have all my camera batteries lettered. I have six, lettered A-F. When he asked me why I told him I use them in order, A through F as they run down and get recharged. So, for example, when D comes out of the camera, E goes in and D goes straight to the charger. He laughed at me and called me anal.
I just want to keep usage and charge cycles even across all the batteries.
Anyone else manage their batteries in a similar way? Or am I just weird?
Looking for advice on buying a new camera
I've been using crop-sensor DSLRs (Nikon D-40x and D-7000) since switching from film cameras a number of years ago. I'm now looking to get a full-frame camera. I'm not a big tech guy, so I don't need all the latest bells & whistles or super-high MP sensors such as on the Canon 5D S and Nikon D850. I also don't shoot video. I mainly shoot landscape and nature subjects. I'd like something that's fairly user-friendly but is still capable of producing excellent results (assuming the user is competent!). Since I'll need new full-frame lenses I don't need to stick with Nikon. Some of the cameras I've looked at are Canon 5D Mk III and IV and Nikon D810. I'm also considering the Canon 6D Mk II or Nikon D750 to save weight and money. I've read tons of reviews, but now I'd like to hear from real people who have been using their cameras and lenses for awhile.
What camera and lenses do you prefer for general/landscape/nature photography?
Can you get as good quality images from the smaller cameras (6D MKII & D750) as the larger ones?
I'd like to be able to produce sharp prints up to 20 x 30.
Sorry for such a long post - thanks in advance for any ideas or suggestions you can provide.

Miller's Farm Tractor Boneyard
Anxious to take pictures of old stuff with my new Canon 5D Mk IV & Tamron 24-70 2.8 Di VC USD G2. I heard about this place, and yesterday took a ride up to Miller's Farm in Platteville, Colorado. I was absolutely blown away by the two acres old farm stuff. Enclosed are some of the equipment there. It's a working farm that markets produce to several major grocery stores and also has a roadside market during the growing season with several unique playgrounds for the kids. A very enjoyable day.
Format it not to format new SD card
When buying a new 128GB SD card for my Nikon Coolpix P900, should I format it after loading it into my camera the first time? Pros and cons ? Sandisk Extreme sdcc with 90mb speed.
