This Weather is for the Birds

birdsbirds4birds5birds6birds3birds7

It is too cold outside to do much but I decided to sit in the sunroom and try to take pictures of birds. Actually I was trying to take pictures of birds in flight. This is harder than it looks. I shot close to 300 photos and wasn’t really happy with any of them. High ISO settings and shooting wide open to freeze the action made for photos that were not as sharp as I would like. I was using a Nikkor 28-300 on my D300. I am guessing I need to find a way to use a flash. I wonder if this would freak the birds out though.

NCL Norwegian Pearl Cruise to Alaska - The Haven Courtyard

If you ever have a chance to sail to Alaska, do it! If you can save up a little more to be able to stay in The Haven Courtyard on Norwegian Cruise Lines, do it! For our anniversary Peg and I decided we would take our first cruise to Alaska. NCL sales called us, last minute, and offered us a deal to upgrade to a penthouse in The Haven Courtyard aboard the Norwegian Pearl. We did and it was fantastic! The Bird of Paradise Courtyard Suite Room 14014 (an S5 level penthouse suite) would be our home for the seven day cruise which started in Seattle, Washington.

Photos from Craig Naff's Hotrod Body Shop with Ron Covell

It's not often that you get the chance to hang out with one of the world's best hotrod metal shapers, Craig Naff. Add to that the fact that Ron Covell, a fantastic metal fabricator and instructor, would be teaching a class in Craig's shop and you have the potential for a fantastic Saturday. I made the drive over to Craig's shop on the outskirts of Woodstock, VA early in the morning using Ron Covell's Basic Metal Shaping class as an excuse to get out of the house.
