    Thad E Ginathom reacted to Chrissie in Wind Turbines waiting for Dawn   
    Now this is clearly becoming way off-topic, but I beg your patience.
    I just returned from walking the dog outside, for the night, and kept thinking about this exchange.
    It's no wonder, it took an "eastern" mind like @Thad E Ginathom's (from India) to make my "western" mind (Switzerland/Germany) aware of the fact, that "waiting" is primarily a state of mind, not of the body.
    As a dog-owner, or at least the husband of the real dog-owner 😉 , I see how we train the obedience of the dog by commandeering her to "Wait!", which goes along with her compelled physical inactivity. While invisibly to to the naked eye, her mind is very actively waiting to be released from this forced inactivity.
    Very interesting indeed. And again: thanks @Thad E Ginathom for broadening my mind like this.

    Interesting thought! 8-)
    The mind may be waiting, while the body goes on with its monotonous activity. Very much possible, not only among wind turbines I'd say. Thanks for pointing this out.

    Who knows what goes through the mind of  a wind turbine! Oh, wait... I forgot: you're an engineer.
    I love the picture too. That moon is the cherry on the cake. Super.

    Thad E Ginathom reacted to Wally The Confused in Which Lens?   
    As far as I know, this is the only lens, Sony advocates for video  ?
    I have no idea, since I only do stills !

    Yes, I know,   most people think Lens Hoods, are some sort of  extraeneous  techno junk.
    Yes... I know...... I hate them too ! .........However, in certain situations........They are neccessary.
    However....
    In this photo, a lens hood, would make no difference !
    The stars from the street lights, are in the center of your photo, not some flare, on an outer edge.
    They occur, due to the placement of all the lens groups, inside your lens barrel.
    I do not think, that they detract from the image, but that is just my opinion.
    To try & avoid this again, you will have to move around & take the photo from different angles, or use a different lens.
    Good Luck

    Agreed, distance is the killer, taking photos of motorbikes heading into a wide corner, they were impossible to follow as they got closer.
    I could not twist fast enough to keep them in the frame for the last 1-2 seconds.

    If you are near the plane, it moves much faster than a bird in flight. I swear.

    In addition to the photographic merit, of course: as a biker, I like the way how this bird is doing a curved flight, yet keeping his head perfectly aligned with the horizon.
    Pretty much like motorcyclists do it, too.

    Hi, what I mean is that the bird always has to be in the center behind the flight direction but taking advantage of the best of the lens to get focus.

    Thad.. He was doing outdoor photography, in freezing conditions. He forgot , or didnt know, to keep the battery warm, to keep it working.
    Yes, you are spot on... After a day of photographing the great freezing  outdoors......it takes a while to warm up the whole camera , with the obvious misting & condensation.
    Cheers
