Full moon photography – tips please
Nikon D7000, Nikkor 85mm 1.4G (ISO400, f4, 1/400) – used tripod.
Photog skills are rusty. Another skill to sharpen during this corona-tine.
Any tips for capturing moon shots? And, in the foreground I had trees. If I adjusted settings to see the evergreen trees the moon was too bright and washed out. To get the craters in the moon I couldn’t figure out how to also include the trees.
Appreciate any of your photog tips! Thanks!
Decorating Easter eggs with scarves and turmeric
Search pinterest “how to dye easter eggs with silk ties” and you’ll get a ton of results on this fun decorating idea. I didn’t have silk ties but, I found some old scarves and put the method to the test. It worked like a charm! I also used the simple method of using a rubber band on eggs and dyeing them in turmeric. It was amazing the deep yellow color I got just out of 20 minutes of soaking. Will definitely use this technique again, and plan ahead with a trip to the thrift store searching for silk ties!

Love our planet and all creatures big and small (dolphin – Big Island, Hawaii)
Celebrate the earth by taking care of this planet that feeds our hunger, quenches our thirst, and gives joy through playful dolphins, stunning sunsets, and colorful flowers. This dolphin played in the wake of our catamaran earlier this year on the Big Island in Hawaii. The sight of this dolphin reminds me how much I care about keeping our oceans clean for our creatures to swim, play and be part of our lives. Our planet takes care of us and it’s up to us to conserve, keep our waters clean and our soils healthy and free of toxins. How will you celebrate, show gratitude, and take care of our generous planet today…and every day? When we take care of our planet, we take care of ourselves. Love and light…
