Bird Watching in Missouri, Thanksgiving 2011



We went to visit Chris, Amy, Ben, & Helen during Thanksgiving this year.  They have purchased a trailer and spot in a sweet little campground near the capitol of Missouri.  While we were checking out the scenery, we happened on Mallards and Canadian Geese.  They sure didn't appear to be in a hurry to head south.
Mallard: 260mm, f/6.3, 1/250 second, ISO 400
Geese: 300mm, f/8.0, 1/500 seconcd, ISO 400

Oceano Dunes

So I purchased a new ips monitor; a Dell 2410.  Yes, middle of the road, but I can see my photos as well as they can be seen with 58 year-old eyes.  I also learned how to repair photo(s) using Photoshop.  Because I took this shot toward the sun, there was a flare caused by my filter on the original images.  Thanks to technology, it became a much better photograph.
