I jumped on a bike and and rode on up to this point to do some trail work on a trail that starts here. But first I had to have a sit and enjoy the day a bit.
Then I walked out and did a couple hours of trail work on this trail. Like always, I do a bit of trail work and then sit down until I’m ready to do some more. When I start to tire out, I sit in the chair for longer periods of time and eventually that tells me it’s time to quit.
Back out the trail and back in the chair for a spell.
The sky view from the chair.
While sitting there, I noticed these plants which I think are Indian Soap Plants are coming up. Means spring is not far away.
I still had enough time to go for a ride so I rode around for a bit going down this rode.
And by our water tanks which were full to the brims.
With the recent rains we’ve been having this creek is running nicely.
I rode down this road and stopped at the spring for a drink of water.
The Spring is flowing nicely right now. I had a couple cups of spring water.
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.
