Family Time

I was at my brother and sister-in-law’s cottage yesterday for a cookout and to watch the fireworks display later in the evening.  Shortly after I got there this mama duck brought her family over for a bite to eat.  My brother and his little girl were tossing pieces of bread for them to eat, so while they were busy eating the bread, I was busy snapping pics.  Mama duck didn’t eat, though.  She kept a watchful eye on her babies, (and us) the whole time.

Serene Summer Day

These pictures fall into the category of “why I never, ever leave the house without a camera”.  I also carry a tripod in my truck at all times too.  I had to make a quick trip over to my brother-in-laws house on Friday afternoon, so I only took the essentials; camera & tripod.  I didn’t bother with purse, phone, driver’s license or any of that stuff.  As I passed this lake, (Lake Oneonta)  I saw how still and peaceful it looked, so I had to stop for pics.  These are all HDR images, hence the need for the tripod, otherwise I almost always shoot handheld.  My exposures were, 0, -2 and +2, and I used Corel Paint Shop Pro X2 to process them.
