A Surprise part 3! Panoramas! I took quite a few since I really like them, but they don't often fit into a regular post, so I'll upload them all to flickr and link them all in one place here! So don;t be surprised if it takes you over to flickr in a new window, the panoramas are just to huge for my poor website here to host well. I'll do my best to get them in chronological order, too.
Thanks for looking! Now I have some timelapses from Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park to finish putting together.
Now it's time for wildlife photos! Woo!
Not as many photos here. I seem to be getting more selective about which ones I take.
You can definitely tell as the time of day changes.
Got to have Prairie Dogs!
Got some shots in the North Unit as well. A Deer and a TON of bison.
My lovely wife got a nice photo of me using my massive camera setup.
So a pretty decent herd there. Now its time for the Pronghorn Photos, my favorites!
Super happy with these, and they look really good in print too!
Thanks for reading!
So just like 2 years ago my wife and I decided to head out to Medora, ND, and Teddy Roosevelt National Park! We had a really nice time, even though it was super hot during the day. And I got some of the by far favorite shots of the park during out time there.
I got some pretty nice landscape photos, as well as some nice wildlife photos. However, since I ended up with a ton of photos I will have one landscape photo blog post and one wildlife photo blog post.
With all the smoke from the Canadian Wildfires there is a ton of haze in the air here, which made for a very interestingly colored morning!
So my wife is pretty cool.
We also decided to head up to the North unit of Teddy Roosevelt National Park as well. We hadn't been there in a couple years, so it was fun!
Also had a pretty sweet bison herd in the north unit. Also had a super sweet sunset the last night.
Thanks for looking! I'll have a post with wildlife photos soon! I saw my first Pronghorn Antelope for North Dakota at 5am on July 4th, so that was pretty sweet. Also got some super sweet photos of it too!
The photos here were taken with either my Nikon D4, D3s, and Fujifilm X-Pro1. Good stuff.
So you may or may not have heard, but there are some pretty intense wildfires happening in Canada now, which the smoke from has descended on us here in North Dakota. Anyways, it gives the moon a pretty good color, so I went out with 3 different cameras on the same lens to see what I could get.
This first one I took with my Fujifilm X-T1 mounted to my Nikon 200-400 f/4 with a 1.4x Teleconverter and a Metabones passive adaptor (not a speedbooster.) Cropped in heavily it is amazing how much detail is left in the moon. I'll link each of these images back to my flickr so that you can zoom in a bit. So this image was 550mm ~f/6.3 ISO 1600 1/8th of a second. Really good for a crop sensor camera cropped in heavily.
This next one here was with my Wifes Nikon D7000, also a 16 megapixel Crop Sensor camera, but this shot was at ISO 800, 550mm, f/6.3, 1/25th of a second with Vibration Reduction. It is pretty horrible in comparison to the Fuji camera, even for being a full stop lower in ISO and with VR.
This last one is a much closer in, lower resolution crop from a photo from my Nikon D4, one of the kings of Low Light. Even though it is a lot lower resolution than the D7000 shot, there is definitely more detail because it holds onto it better at higher ISO values. This shot was at 550mm, ISO 3200, f/8 1/30th of a second. Pretty good for an extreme crop.
Thanks for reading, I think this is fairly interesting, and shows yet again how good the little Fujifilm cameras are doing.
