Springs Preserve Bird Walk – March 2018

Was overcast this morning, but that didn’t stop the birds. Did a walk-through at Springs Preserve in Las Vegas, Nevada and tested out the 100-300mm used lens I picked up. Love the clarity and bokah on these. Will have to revisit when the sun is out, as I can see the lack of colors on some and the clarity a bit lacking.

Thanks to the Red Rock Audubon Society for their walk-through and Springs Preserve for allowing entry prior to the normal opening.

Almost full moon

While trying to take a photo of the moon yesterday, it came out hazy due to the weather. Today though, it came out great. The details when I zoom in are just spectacular. Not bad for a first attempt with a DSLR. Noticed the image quality was a bit downgraded after upload, but the lower corner of the moon still looks sharp!
