Fall in Door County, WI

We spent the weekend at Peninsula State Park. The colors are really starting to come out along Lake Michigan.

The first is a panoramic shot of the lake shore while standing above the tree cover. I wasn't sure how that would turn out as its an in-camera function. It took me about 10 tries until the camera accepted the picture. Either I was moving too fast or too slow. I thought I was the same speed each time. Go figure.

The second is shot from Eagle bluff.

The third one is also shot from Eagle Bluff, but higher up. It shows the camera's HDR feature.

The last is the Eagle Bluff lighthouse in the park. I waited about 20 minutes for people to clear out and even then I caught a few lol.

Pretty shots, Triguy -I like that panoramic feature.

We're in full fall bloom up here but we don't have any maples so you never see the gorgeous reds that you get down there.

These are from Riding Mountain, including a couple of my latest attempts to shoot at night.
The first one's an "action shot" -I used a fast shutter speed but it's hard to make out all the leaves that were airborne in the breeze at the time

I like the effects of a good night shot and those are nice.

Thank you. I've taken to unscrewing the UV filter from my lens as discussed way back in this thread. It does help cut down on unwanted reflections (and naturally I dropped it in the dirt...sigh).
I'm still working on getting that big, sharp shot of the moon.
Not there yet!

Yukon Don - some great shots there. I especially like the 3rd one, moon on water reflection over the tree-line.

Big, sharp images of the moon need just a couple things - a tripod and your longest lens (zoom all the way) in order to make the moon as big as possible. Also, try to include some 'earthly' feature just in the frame to provide context and scale if possible (it will silhouette against the bright moon). As for exposure I always start with the "sunny 16" rule and then change the exposure from there (open the aperture one stop or slow down shutter speed one stop for each shot). Just dont let the shutter speed get to slow or the moon will blurr and become egg shaped due to earths rotation.

While the fall colors aren't at peak yet, it is mating season for the Elk.

Nice Elk. How far were you when you took the picture?

I was about 75 yards away when I took that photo of the Elk. I was out practicing with the Canon SX 160is that I received for my birthday. The 16x zoom really brings the animals up close. Here’s a photo of some turkeys that I took when we were at Rend Lake last week. This was at full zoom in fading light and the image stabilization really worked great. ISO was at 400 for the turkey photo.
