After tending the chickens I got to work on the old well sediment removal project here.
I mostly sat in a chair and turned this water valve off and on to help pickup the sediment in the well to bring it to the top and into the bucket.
I hit some softer sediment today which helped improve the rate of sediment removal quite a bit so I kept at it on and off most of the day and into the evening.
Some helpers came by mostly to get a drink of water, first this white rooster.
Then the other rooster came by, Carmelo 2.
The chickens seem to like playing in the water and mud.
I’m starting to get more raspberries than I can eat getting ripe. There’s nothing like getting a big ol handful of raspberries and stuff it all in your mouth at the same time for a flavor burst. Yummy.
I’ve been working on eating as many of these Royal Ann cherries as I can and doing a pretty good job of it.
And of course I checked on the chicks on and off throughout the day to make sure none of them had gotten into any trouble. Not today.
A Sony AX33 4K, a video camera that takes stills too. What am I doing with that? I take pictures from my Kayak a lot. I found I was missing interesting shots, because my pic was being processed in my camera, before it would let me take another pic. Since I like to take what I call action stills, I bought this camera to take videos, that I could make stills out of, but, as a bonus, this camera also came with buttons to just take stills and that's what I mostly do, unless something is real interesting or too far away for my still zooms. My digilat zoom setting for video goes to two hundred x, and sometimes I need that, but usually, I only use the 10x lens zoom. Because this camera is HD and 4K, the quality has to be real good and it has a lot of stabilizers on it which really helps out a lot for taking pics on the water.
The other thing it has that is a must is a view finder and I had to buy Sony's top of the line cam to get it. This is a must for taking pics on the water, as you must hold the camera as still as posible and putting that eye piece to the eye forms a tripod with your arms that helps a lot. The eye piece is also a must as it works way better than a LED screen to see what you are taking a picture of in the daylight as the LED screens wash out easily in sunlight.
I also have another video camera, a Canon VIXIA G30. I use them both to mostly take stills. The Sony takes higher resolution stills than the G30. That was a bit of a disappointment as I bought the G30 to replace an older camera I dunked in the river, but then had to buy the Sony to get higher still picture resolution that the G30 was lacking.
