It is hard to see the pirate battle after the drop at Pirates of the Caribbean.  It is real impressive to be able to get any kind of image from a moving boat but I got pretty close with the Fujifilm X-T1 and the XF 35mm f1.4.  Close enough to see that really doesn’t look too much like Hector Barbossa.

I think I caught this heron yawning.  If he is yawning, he closes his eyes  just like us humans.

Heron

HeronThe heron hanging out at the course.  It is amazing how sharp the images coming out of the Fujifilm X-T1.  This is with the “kit” XF 18-55mm lens.  One of the tips to getting good sharp images is to have plenty of light so you can control your camera’s aperture and shutter speed.  As you can see from this image there was nothing but sunshine this morning.

Not All Photographs

Reflected (Clouds)

Not all photographs are perfect or need to be.  This morning this was what I saw in my backyard.  Clouds reflecting off the pool.  I wanted to make an image that mirrored my field of view.  This was a first attempt and was not quite as wide as I was seeing.  This picture as taken with the Nikon D600 (full frame) and the 28-300mm set to 50mm which be conventional wisdom is the match for what the eye sees. Not quite wide enough for me.  Setting it to 35mm would have been closer to the truth. Not the worlds best picture but it told me things I needed to know.

Tree Of Life

Tree Of Life

Speaking of trees, here it the Tree of Life at Animal Kingdom.  The details of this tree are amazing.  Right now the area around the tree is under construction so you can’t get really close.  Under the tree is the show A Bug’s Life, at least I think it is still there interesting show, mostly for the young ones but it is a nice cool place when the whole Kingdom is hot with summer heat.

The Tree

Sometimes the subject of your photo is chosen by the camera.  While I should probably pat my self on the back for such a tack sharp tree, the real subject of this photo was supposed to be something else, obviously.  Still the painterly rhino backside looks kind of cool.  And if anyone ever asks I did this on purpose.
