Tonight: Venus & Belle

Venus and the Container Ships Belle would like you to throw the ball...

Fri 02.27.15 – Two photos of two of the most beautiful things to be found this evening: Venus and the container ships as seen whilst stopped at the Pacific Coast Highway & Seapoint light in Huntington Beach and Belle le Cane and her ball after dinner. Belle would like you to throw her ball.

These two photos taken within an hour or two of each other re-remind me how much I love my Nikon D800 camera with the Nikon 50mm f/1.4G lens. It is a simple but rockstar combo for great photos. Rather than buying several lenses or even one mid-range zoom, do yourself and your photos a favor and splash out for one good to great 50mm lens, then take lots of photos.

Bolsa Chica Bird Party!

Sat 11.22.14 – Today I went over to Bolsa Chica Wetlands during low tide and had fun for over 40 minutes watching a Bird Party! at the water outflow pipes between the big wetland sections. Not only were the birds having a grand time of fishing for little fry and sardines, as well as the seagulls attempting to steal said fish from the terns while flying, but there were many photographers of various species and bird watchers. Thus it was not only fun to watch the antics of the birds, but also of the humans.
