Good Morning: 27 October 2021

Good morning friends,

Hope you all had a peaceful night’s rest. I slept like a log.

I got up at 4:45am this morning to go to Botterblom Nature Reserve. I left home at 5:20am and got home at 9:10am. It was a beautiful morning and I was blessed with hardly any wind and a few clouds in the sky. I did make on boo boo this morning. When I use my lens on the tripod I switch off the image stabilizer. I used my 18-55mm for pond photos, and then I switch to my 70-300mm for birding. I then switch back to my 18-55mm and forgot to switch image stabilizer on again 🤦‍♀️ I took hundreds of flower photos handheld, with my camera bag on my back. I only realized this when I got home and took my lens out of my bag to clean it. I just hope my hand was steady enough while photographing the flowers… I will not make that mistake again…

What really matters is that I got up, got out and enjoyed the shoot. I could not believe when I got to the car and saw that it was 9:00am. I was walking, shooting and discovering the most beautiful little flowers. Now keep your fingers crossed that at least one of these came out.
