I went over to my brother’s chicken pen today and collected the eggs while he is away for a bit.
Car tire leak
My tire pressure alert came on the other day and I found this tire at 20 pounds instead of 30 pounds. I added some air. Today I checked for the leak and couldn’t find one, so I’ll wait awhile and check the pressure again at a later time. I think I might have had a small rim leak that sealed up when I added more pressure.
The next thing I did was to move this wi-fi extender to this spot to improve the internet signal in the front yard.
My neighbor, way up on the hill tops called and said we should check out his new spring and get ready to tap it soon. We need some blue clay, so I stopped to check out this creek spot where I thought there was some blue clay.
There seems to be lots of blue clay here. We just need to take some rocks off the top to get to it.
I continued on up the hill to this gate where I spotted these wild turkeys sneaking off.
It was trying to rain, but it just did some very light drizzling for about an hour.
The spring area was a bit over grown, so Rob took his weed eater to make a trail into it.
Spring clean out
We took the rocks off the spring tap and found it all plugged up with roots from the big ferns there.
This big Pacific Giant Salamander crawled out from the rocks. It’s about 7 inches long and like to live in this type of spot.
We made plans to get some blue clay and fix this spring up soon.
Lots of clouds today, but little rain.
Headed back to Rob’s place where we shot the bull a bit then I headed on home for the day.
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.
