It may not be perfect but it’s my first posted pano since I acquired the software.
I like it slightly better than what comes with E 8 but it’s all very personal.
This was taken the other evening from the door of our tiny 14 foot 44 year old camper.
We are alone on the lake save 1 other local that and will be there most of the summer.
It’s public land but not that well known….lucky for us!
We go down when we have a day off and fish or relax.
Lots of fun.
P.S. For anyone wanting to try a panorama it’s easy and this software is free.
It’s called Hugin Panorama Stitcher.
This hawk swooped down this morning and grabbed one of our birds.
We don’t know which one and perhaps it was a squirrel….hope so.
He stood there eating it, unafraid of anything in HIS world and looked around..just to be sure.
Unfortunately my dog saw him and IMMEDIATELY made a run for him and the hawk took off…dinner in the mouth.
NOW unfortunately all the birds are terrified and I wonder how long the effect of this predator will last at our feeders.
Sadly, I suppose perhaps we unwittingly played into the hawk’s hands ( talons ) but providing a place where HIS prey congregate.
Nothing to do…nature will have it’s way.
If anyone knows from the picture what kind of hawk this is please write it on the page.
Fortunately my dog Jack saw this moose….Unfortunately he saw it before I saw it and not in time to get a PURRRFECT picture of it….but sometimes you have to be happy with what you DID get.
We see a fair amount here but APPARENTLY they know when I’m out and about with the Canon and hide.
This was just a young’un…..didn’t know the tradition and exposed himself ( herself maybe ).
This was taken a few metres from my house.
This is a video I made about a week ago one evening trying to view/download a free Photoshop video.
I don’t want to spoil it so please have a look and let me know what you think.
If you like it feel free to pass it on.
Ironically I couldn’t post it on Youtube…so my son did it for me, as you will see in the description.
I will post a humour picture another time but in view of recent events at the forum with my problems it seemed appropriate,
Enjoy….at my expense.
P.S. I HOPE posting this link doesn’t break any rules but if it does please just remove it…no hard feelings.
Went out yesterday…my only day off in a LONG time…and decided to go geocaching….if you don’t know what it is go here… geocaching.com
It’s a sort of adult hide and seek with a gps…lots of fun, free and they ‘re everywhere around the world.
Even tiny towns like where I live have lots.
We did it with our kids and anyone who wants to join us for a walk in the woods.
Met some muggles while I was at the cache and they kindly took my picture for me.
Pine and Sumac in the background as well as a small deep lake called Ink Lake.
