It’s been a very long time since I’ve been out taking photos of landscape or nature stuff. Been wanting to get out to my local refuge since the beginning of the year, but couldn’t for one reason or another. We’ve had some recent storms, so I told myself that I had to get out there
As I mentioned on my last entry, Gray Peak and the Moon, I had some issues with my 300mm lens. Once the moon was farther away, I switched to my 70-200 so I could capture Mt. Clark, Gray Peak and Mt. Starr King, and of course the moon.
