Wounded skies

12 posts in this topic

With all the late evening thunderstorm activity this last week and all of us posting images, I thought I'd throw a couple more into the mix.

Miners Lake dwarfed by the sky

Canon 30D, Canon 17-40 f4L at 17mm, iso100, 1/6 at f22, handheld and braced

Into a troubled sky (actually, the storm had passed, the winds had dropped, and there were blue skies within a few miles)

Canon 30D, Canon 70-200 f2.8L at 120mm, iso100, 1/1250 at f2.8, handheld, panoramic crop

And some nice images they are, too! I like the story lines that go with them.

I love the second shot!! It has a little of a spooky feeling to it.

I also really like the 2nd shot but the first gets my vote. Nice stuff Steve.

Both are sweet shots Steve. #1 is my favorite of the 2.

You know it's strange how different people like different things.

For me, the second image is a winner and the first an also-ran, just "another sunset shot." I just tossed the first one in there as an afterthought. I'll be printing the second image really large and custom matting and framing it, I like it that much.

In the end it's all good, and things like this are a continual lesson that what's important is not which nature image we like best, but that we simply like nature images as much as we do. gringrin

The second image does it also for me!...those skies sure made the photo!...one never can tell till we get back home and see the photo on the puter what we really have sometimes......I think maybe that image was the last thing Amelia Earhart saw before she took "the plunge" shocked.... grin

    • I looked everywhere for the screws in the first post and nobody knew what I was talking about till I went to Ace, where I should have gone first. They are actually considered a sheetrock screw! I can't see any use for them with sheetrock but I was told it was because of the coating on them. I have a beat up old trailer house at hunting camp and they are perfect for putting warped metal siding back together and super sharp like a self piercing screw. Sometimes they are called gutter screws too. The hex ones do work great for boots and four wheeler tires.  
    • I liked Lavine too, but coming off ACL surgery you get the feeling that he will lose some of that explosiveness that made him fun to watch.
    • And remember, turkey is not pork and doesn't benefit from high internal temperatures.   It dries out if overcooked.  160 is plenty, maybe even a little less. 
    • Also, turkey doesn't need to be "low and slow" to get to be tender. Crank the heat to 250+ if you like. I've had the smaller breasts done in just 2 1/2 to 3 hrs. FWIW, I just rub it down with olive oil and apply your favorite rub.  If injecting at all, Creole Butter is a nice, quick, easy option. Apple mixed with cherry or hickory are my favorite woods to use.    
    • Well, that was interesting! The same trade that would have been good last year is seemingly brilliant this year. Butler immediately shores up our defense and creates additional scoring for this young, suddenly legitimate team. Great move to start the new year, and a good draft prospect at #16 to boot. While I do like Lavine, we seemed to do a bit better with him sidelined which is not an indictment on his talent, but rather proof that he didn't quite fit our scheme. All in all, this was about as lopsided a trade as I can think of and we should be pretty darn happy with the return we got!
    • What a treat to see a tanager.
