If you are seeing this, you are seeing the transferred blog. I think most of the stuff is working, but not quite everything yet. The header pics seems to have some blanks in it which I will try to work out once everything else is in shape. A refresh or two might bring one up. And some pictures of later posts aren’t showing up, but most of the blog has been recovered.
I’ve got a lot of trail work to do this winter so this seemed like a good day to do some work and get some exercise.
I rode a motor bike up this trail.
I stopped at this creek crossing and thought these rocks could use a big rock for a stepping stone to cross the creek when walking.
I found a big rock up the creek about 50 feet. I had to roll it to this spot and I added a couple of smaller rocks too.
I continued up the trail heading for a trail I’m working on up on the ridge top. Everything is real lust right now with the rains we’ve been having.
There’s a chair on the ridgetop at the beginning of the trail I was going to do some work on.
Seemed like a good idea to sit in it for a spell and take a break.
Eventually I walked out the trail and started by removing this small little slide on the trail.
I walked out the trail a bit further and worked on widening out this part of the trail, below.
I worked all day, sitting in my chair and working until it started to get too dark. I noticed the stump I saw earlier in the day was starting to look like a bear, but I knew it wasn’t.
I put the tools and chair away on the trail and walked out to where my bike was parked.
Enjoying the evening
There I sat and enjoyed the evening until it started to get too dark. I had to ride home in the semi dark so I just rode slower.
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.
