Crows, crane, Sliver Moon over Mia’s Tree.
Intermission: Daddy owl hooted at me in the dark and got my attention. +2 stops made for an interesting exposure.

Beautiful photos. I never get good evening pictures. I probably could if I knew how to use my camera correctly but I just have never been able to.
Thanks, Stine. If your camera has + and – stops, you can easily bracket to try and get the best, workable exposure. low light can be very frustrating. I almost always bracket so I have three or four exposures to work with.
Where would these + and – stops be found? I really need to go to a camera shop or something and have someone teach me. I have had this camera for a long time and I still can’t figure it out. I have tried to read the manual but it makes no sense to me. Someone who posted pictures the other day said they had a Nikon 950 something or other. Beautiful and they said easy but a lot of money. Mine is still good. Sony a300 DSLR
The manual for your A300 is at https://www.sony.com/electronics/support/res/manuals/3287/32879691M.pdf. On page 35, 11 is the +/- exposure button. It’s the button to the right of the viewfinder. On Page 85 it eplains how to change the exposure using the exposure button. On the bottom of your viewfinder you will see short lines with -2 -1 0 +1 +2. When you press the +/- button then turn one of your dials, the indicator will move under the lines and numbers to show you how far over or under your exposure will be. The minus side will increase your shutter speed or ISO, and the plus side will decrease you shutter speed or ISO. I hope that helps.
Yes, that helps a lot! Can you explain the rest of the functions of my camera in easy to understand ways like you did? Lol. Seriously, listening to someone would probably do me a lot of good. Thank you for the info. I will definitely check this aspect out.
I’m not familiar with Sony DSLRs, but they are all somewhat similar. I use Canon, but I’ve helped a lot of people out with their Nikons. You are welcome to email me questions at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll answer the best I can.
Another great set of photos, Tim. I see a set of AM broadcast towers in one photo. Do you know the call sign? If the owl didn’t hoot, I’d have totally missed it.
Hi John. I don’t know who those towers belong to. We have a lot of AM stations out here.
What a great group! Love the planets, moon, tangle heart and plane all in one photo.
Thanks, Dale. That is a cool alignment.
Beautifully captured Timothy🤩
Most welcome, Timothy 😃
Another great set of photos, each unique and beautiful. Nice to see Daddy Owl! Clouds and rain up here tonight, no sky views this evening.
Thanks, Lavinia. It was cloudy here last night.
I’m glad you had a busy time photographicalisationing, Tim. Great shots!
I am now convinced that there is a conspiracy between nature and you!
Conspiracy theories abound. Thanks, Marina.
My but that is so beautiful.
Great shots of what the snow won’t let me view in the sky.
Snow happens. Any forecast for clearing for Monday? Thanks, Teri.
So far no clearing till Tuesday. Maybe I will still have a chance?
These are some pretty amazing photographs, Tim! Have you ever considered publishing a book of your work? You could call it The Book of the Bosque!
I have a few photo books. When I start trying to figure out what I want to put in a book, it all becomes too much. Thanks, Tiffany.
Tim, stunning series of photos. The crows and the sliver moon are quite magical, as are the chemtrails! Your photos would make lovely card sets.
Thanks, Mia. I have made card sets, calendars, and mugs in years past. But haven’t had time recently.
Let me know it you start it up again.
I’ll be sure to let you know.
Wonderful shots, Tim!
It’s like you live on a cosmic nature preserve!
Thanks, Resa. It does get cosmic around here.
The crows seem to be mocking the moon.
Crows do seem to mock everything. They are wonderfully ornery birds. Thanks, Susan.
Stunning photography Tim! 👏
Thanks, Julie. I mentioned you in my latest post.
You get some amazing shots and I love the detail to scenery photographs. Thanks for sharing!
You are welcome. Thanks, for stopping by,
It was a pleasure sir 🙏 😊
