Took the shot of the glow and ran inside to tell NordieMissus and when I got back out, it was up the height of the second pic.
200mm lens for the first 3 and added a 2x converter for the last.

300mm lens, tripod, timer, cropped in a fair way, with contrast cranked up a bit. Oh, and a few other fancy camera settings.

Moon is quite high in the sky, so very bright. Looks more interesting as it's rising or setting.
Damn you both the first week of rain we get in ages, and I want to go out and take photos of the moon.

Bart: What other fancy camera settings?

Dunno about him, but I used 1/125th to 1/250th @ F11 ISO100.


Oh and the flash, cause it was dark.

I used spot metering because you want the camera to concentrate on the moon in the centre of the frame, not all the black around it. Timer is used because even on a tripod, you get camera shake when pushing the button (I should get a remote). I used the basic manual setting, and set it to the center AF (auto focus) point. Other then that, I let the camera do the rest.

Simple eh?

bloody dr riders

great to see that photo on the cover of that epic flyer thingy
I still think of that ride as a real high water mark
Thanks, not everyone was pleased about me 'selling out'. Hopefully I'll get a free poster.

That ride was easily the best I've been on. Still got the scars. We need to sort out another one, but give me plenty of notice. The piggy bank is pretty low at the moment.

Yeah, how hard can it be? Now I just have to wait for it to stop raining

Wade's ride

We ran out of time on the RRRR to do a section Wade had organised, so decided to have a look last weekend.

Meeting point was Waipawa, about 45 minutes north for me, so I left 2 hours before and took the scenic route.





There were 5 of us. Wade showed us through a whole lot of agricultural land. Plenty of old dead machinery.





Wade playing around in a quary. It was a bit steeper and softer than he realised, so he provided plenty of entertainment.







Stunning winters day in the Hawkes Bay









Yesssssssss......those tracks on the near hill are a make shift mx track.



What do you do when you've got not one, but two KTM 530's in the group.

















Me, chasing Wade



He was a little bit quick for me. In fact, it almost looks like he knows what he's doing...



DRGIRL went real well on the little 200

Token KLR





Ancient Maori Pa site



Veiw from Wade's house



Awesome ride. I didn't want to take the boring main road home, so went the long way again. Sunset.



My hometown



I saw a fire in the distance, so went to investigate. Full moon was rising, so had to stop for a photo. The things you see when you haven't got the tripod or correct lens. This just doesn't do it justice...





I'm not the sentimental type, but that Lou Reed song Perfect Day kept buzzing through my head. It was a perfect day.

Sounds like a great (would only classify as perfect if I had been there) day - great photos (especially the sunset one - nice balance) as usual

awesome song

Mmmmm 2012

Frosty early start. Not as bad as a couple of years ago, but plenty cold enough.









Wade's temperature guage. It stops at zero, so must have been minus a few



First stream crossing













Brrrrrrrrrr







Gerrard, after he had a wee spill. He rode the 300km plus home, to find he has a smashed collar bone. Hard man...



The challenge section...





I made a bit of a cock up of things in the slippery stuff. Found the limits of my $10 back tyre.

Best tyre I've ever had (for the money), and I've got a spare one in the shed.



Horsepower



That awesome little windy bit through Waikerimoana







Lake shot



I had to pull out near Tiniroto. Fork seal problems. I figured there was no point going further away from home, so caught up with the Hawkes Bay day riders near Wairoa, drinking coffee and gas bagging...





Pic of the day
