Morning Greetings: 23 September 2021

Good morning friends,

How are you on this beautiful cloudy Thursday morning?

Yesterday dad and I had a wonderful day at the West Coast National Park. We had a very early start and got up at 4:00am. We left home around 4:45am and returned last night just after 6:00pm. It was a hot day and at one stage I looked and the temperature was 32°C.

I put the new lens to the test and it took a while for me to get use to it in the field. I am use to my 18-200mm and had to get close to get a nice photo. Now with the 70-300mm I have to step back. I got the hang of it later.

I tried to take photos with the tripod but I got super frustrated. I ended up taking photos handheld. For flower and birding the tripod will not do I miss shots and can’t get the right angles. For landscapes yes, then it works perfectly.

I came to the conclusion that I shall use the tripod for my landscape photography, abstact landscape photography, macro photography and SOME flower photography. Also when I have time and only go to the location for the few photos I planned after my recce visit.
