Sandhill Cranes Scenery and Such
After four attempts to find and photograph the lovely Sandhill Cranes –I did find them! Although this is late in their migration season–there were still a few to be seen and enjoyed!
Some of you may remember that I went to a workshop recently on my Nikon D300s…it was fabulous. Learned much about using my camera more effectively. Part of the changes I made were to set Auto ISO and give a range–at the instructors urging. Seemed good to me. Really wish I would have thought about the consequences of this action–setting the ISO range from 200-3200. Realized late in this shoot that my ISO was shooting up to ISO 32o0. Was I checking pics for focus–yes. Did I look at histograms–yes! Am I shooting in RAW and jpg–yes!
The good news–is I now have my camera ISO under my control and not in Auto anything! Some lessons only take one time to learn:)
There were so many birds to view and enjoy. Amazing how they seem to have their own little sections of this pond.
This was a crazy weather weekend–and I was able to enjoy amazing natural shows of beauty while waiting for dusk and hoping more Sandhill Cranes would arrive.
