It will drive you nuts

It will drive you nuts.

Attempting to capture a great photograph of a comet in 8 degree weather with a windchill of -5 will drive you nuts. I went out last night and got some okay stuff but not the shot I am hoping for. So when life gives you lemons, make lemonade or in this case when it drives you nuts, shoot Nuthatches! This is a Whitebreasted Nuthatch at the bird studio yesterday.

Tamron SP 150-600mm Di VC USD lens on a Nikon D-800, Aperture Priority, f11, -.7 stops of exposure compensation, ISO 1600, resulting in a shutter speed of 1/320th of a second, Vanguard Abeo Plus tripod and Wemberley head, processed in Lightroom 5.

    That bird is beautiful, David! Hope you¹ve thawed out from the night¹s shoot by now. Our furnace can¹t keep the house at 71* setting. It was 70 and dropped to 69*. Good luck to us and all other folks in the deep freeze! Mikki

    Thanks. I am almost thawed out, LOL! Of course I will be out there again this evening! We keep our house at about 65 degrees, we gave up on 70!
