I’m still getting to know my Nikon D800 and while “testing” the HDR function I discovered that if you move the camera even slightly then you end up with this (actually pretty cool).
Obviously I was trying to get a good image of this oak but with HDR on it caused the combined image to be blurry. Below is the very next image with HDR still on.
Both images were taken with my Nikon D800 and AF Nikkor 24mm f2.8 D lens. I’ll need to learn to use the D800 more fully. Now that the weather has changed and the heat and humidity of summer is gone there will be more opportunities to go out and get some images under my belt.
This wood deck in my backyard is 17-years-old – I built it back in 2003 as an enjoyable spot to connect our house with the wooded back areas of my yard. I love trees and I love the shade they provide during the hot summer months here in North Florida. The downside of having a wood deck in a forest is that it tends to get dirty quickly – really quickly. Algae, mold, dirt, leaves, and grime combine to turn the wood black.
I started cleaning the deck with my pressure washer (electric 2100 psi) last weekend and I’ve still got a long way to go but I thought I’d share a before and after picture of just how nice it’s coming along. No chemicals, just water pressure (and time).
Pressure washing can be a relaxing and enjoyable experience. I tend not to think about anything while I’m doing it. So its kinda peaceful during these frightening times.
Speaking of peaceful. I want to wish all of my friends and followers here on WordPress a wonderful Thanksgiving day and that you’re able and sit back and enjoy spending some time in person and virtually with the people you love.
Thanks for stopping by – peace and love y’all! – Chris
