But today, here are the rest of the snowy pictures I took during the storm.
As we rounded a curve, I saw HIM, way up in the tree!:
But, then we saw a SECOND bald eagle flying away, too! I was lucky enough to capture him:
I told my husband that even though I hated the snowstorm, it was SO worth it to see two bald eagles during the storm! Now that I know where I saw them, I am hoping I can get there during a clear day and use my zoom to get closer, clearer shots.
Several of you wanted to know what camera I am using. I got it at Christmas, and believe me it is very easy to use. It literally has an automatic focus feature that is easy to learn and one of the best zooms I have ever seen. The camera also has settings for when I learn to use my own settings rather than relying on the automatic focus all the time. I plan on taking a class in June to learn a little more about my camera.
But here are the stats:
It is a digital Panasonic Lumix. Model # DMC-FZ28.
It has an 18X optical zoom and 10 megapixels.
I ordered it off Amazon.com on sale for around $300.00.
I recommend it to anyone who wants to start learning some really good quality photography without fear. If I can do it, anyone can!
I hope to get better as I learn more.
Go to my blogroll...there are some PHENOMENAL photographer blogs out there for you to see. Those ladies are professional at it, and put my beginning shots to shame.
But I so enjoy this new hobby of mine!
I am afraid you blogger buddies will have to suffer through my many posts of shots I will be taking as I learn!
