I would not want to be whatever or whoever it is eyeballing.

I like how the tiger is nicely balanced with the vegetation to the right.
Thanks. He started at the waters edge then started walking towards us. We were about 35 yards away, outside adobe wall and the other side of the water.

This next backyard shot is thru my family room window, ... a sunrise, behind some thin clouds on Dec. 21, 2020 7:41 am.

Is that a bannister at the bottom. I would crop that out. I like the simplicity of the photo. The colors are kinda strange for a sunrise.

No bannister, it's shot thru the center of my 2' x 4' window using a tri-pod.

The clouds were moving east slowly and the sun would disappear behind the clouds, then barely reappear (this picture), to blindingly bright.

I agree the colors are strange, I just left it on Auto and took several shots letting the camera adjust the F-Stop, Shutter Speed, etc.

Backyard again, unusual colorful sunset, 1st time seen since we bought the house (1974) and never seen again since this photo taken on Dec. 1, 2010 - 6:58pm. The camera back then was the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS.

@Phil Iturralde I have just realized that the bottom of the pic which I interpreted to be a bannister, is just an area not part of the picture. Never mind. Did those strange colors in the first pic represent reality?

From what I remember, it was just bright as the sun emerged from behind a thick cloud, so the camera interpreted the colors you see, probably the result of the Shutter Speed @ 1/1250.

Here's the 2nd shot a few seconds later, ...

Do you know what the white balance was set to? That would affect the color more than the shutter speed (which I understand would usually have no effect on the color).

Shutter speed has no effect on color, except for the intensity or darkness of it. White balance definitely influences colors.

Well, in that case, the White Balance = Auto

Kilauea Point Lighthouse (Kauai), 10:06am, Aug. 28, 2014 View attachment 86659


I took a similar photo when we were there in 2010. We had an enlargement hanging in our family room until we recently remodeled and we switched up the photos on the walls. Looking at the photo now, it could stand to be re-processed with the more modern software I'm using now -- that horizon shows the distortion from the wide angle lens I used. DxO PhotoLab can correct that easily.

We definitely hit many of the same spots in Kauai, @Phil Iturralde . Here are a couple. FYI, we spent five days on that island, and five days on Hawaii that trip. The Big Island is our favorite of those we have visited (we've been to Oahu and Maui, too, during our three trips there). We had originally planned to go back this winter and visit Molokai, but COVID19 prevented that. Hopefully in the next couple of years...

This is probably my favorite shot from our visit to Kauai. My wife and I love to whale watch, and this is the first time I ever was able to capture one breaching.

That's a fantastic shot! @Scott Merryfield We never saw a whale breach the 1 time we went out to whale watch. We did see this little guy (about a foot long) when we were hiking back from the Monoa Falls trail (Oahu) back in 2008.

Our first visit was our 7-day Honeymoon in Hawaii, 4 days in Oahu and then 3 days in Kauai back in 1971. Our next visit to Hawaii, Oahu would be 33 years later in 2004 with a bunch of friends. Then we went back 2005 to Oahu.

We like it so much that we went back to Oahu in 2008 and also added the Big Island on the itinerary. At the time, the 2008 Kīlauea summit eruption started and for everyone’s safety, the National Volcano Park was closed. So we decided to fly (Big Island by Air Tour) around the Big Island which included over the National Volcano Park - couple of highlights from the plane, …
