Colors of Fall

Someone told me that FSSP isn't known for it's fall colors...but I beg to differ!  These photos are from Oct 25th.

Crex Outings

We had a spectacular show with an overflowing abundance of cranes and a glorious sunset yesterday. I traveled with Janos, Christa, Gene, and Gene's friend John. (I am thinking of asking them to start a band just so I can use the shots below for "really hip" front and back album covers.)  Others we meet on the dikes included Leon, Ruth, May, Dan, and Judy.

I got a glimpse of some of Leon's work while he was resting his trigger finger waiting for his camera to cool down (look out Mary there is another fast gun in town!). I saw some spectacular shots  and vids from his tripod mounted Canon 300MM f2.8 setup. I am looking forward to hearing/seeing more from last weeks outing.  I suggest that we set up an album for sharing and would like to discuss possibly developing a collaborative work.

While you were sleeping last night, tucked securely in your warm bed, others of
us braved the cool temperatures, to capture a very rare and exciting event that
only some can dream of.

If you would post this to the Camera Club I will be for ever in your debt.

Leon and Ruth

p.s. Yes even Ruth was out watching me and thinking what the hell are we doing
out here

p.s.s. Used a Tamron 70 ? 300mm lens hand held
