Marty came by and we sat around and did some trip planning for the future for about an hour in the yard while doing some chair hopping.
Then we walked around the yard doing some fruit and berry sampling.
I had some light work to do up in the woods so we rode on up there taking the chainsaw to do some road clearing of downed dead trees which were across the roads.
This is the first one we stopped at and the chainsaw made short work of it.
Full water tanks
We continued on up the road going by our water tanks that were full, which is always nice.
Then we stopped at this little tree which I was able to just throw off the road.
We were going by the old spring so we stopped for a drink of fresh spring water, just because we could.
Then we sat in the chairs at the spring and shot the bull some more and some more trip planning, among other stuff.
Only the small stuff
After a good rest there we continued on to the next little tree across the road. We only worked on the little stuff today. This one was another real easy one with only one saw cut to clear it off the road.
We moved on and went through this nice lush area.
And stopped here to remove the dead trees on the right, mostly just because we had the saw and it was the last one I knew we had to deal with so we did.
Now that all the work was done we rode on through this area.
Down to this area where I have some more chairs that needed occupying.
This was the view from the chairs in that spot. We rested up and shot some more bull, mostly just enjoying the nice peaceful day in the forest.
It was getting late in the day so from that spot we rode down through this area on our way back to my house.
That pretty much did the day in. Marty took off for his place and I took off for a nap.
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.
