I needed to clean up all the wild plum tree brush I cut up yesterday.
I made little piles so I can drag it about a 150 feet to my brush pile, just up the driveway.
That didn’t take as long as I thought it would but it did wear me out a bit.
Tom will be by soon with his tractor to dig out all these little plum tree stumps.
There were some clouds up in the sky that helped keep the sun off me while I moved those brush piles. This was the view of the sky as I sat in a chair waiting for Tom to come by with his tractor.
I didn’t get much of a break before he showed up.
He got right to work and I helped by moving stuff out of his way as he dug it up.
The little stumps weren’t too hard to dig up, but he dug up a big root off one of the close by redwood trees that gave him some trouble.
After we got all the stumps out of there, he flattened it out as best he could. I’ll have to bring some rock in to make it better, but it’s ok for now. We still have to haul all the stumps away, maybe tomorrow as today, I’m beat.
I let the chickens out and they went right for the stumps to find some goodies to eat.
I needed a good rest after that so I had a good break.
Did a bit of welding too
A bit later I came back outside and was chair hopping around the yard when I decided to weld up some channel iron for the bridge repair. I welded the smaller pieces together to make them long enough for what I need. That’s a good start as I need more of them.
I sat around as the sun went down behind the hills to the west.
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.
