So, I was given a pretty nice camera as a somewhat early Christmas gift this year (I got it about 6 weeks ago...thanks mom!). I've always wanted a DSLR, having had fun with my two Point and Shoots the past several years. I'm still learning how to use the dang thing...but I'm loving it so far. Any time I get that I actually HAVE time to groom up and shoot the horses, usually is a horrible weather day, which is killing me! I want to take pretty pony pictures!
So, for now, it's mainly nature photography and kittens. LOL This post will have a few kitten pictures I took of our barn kittens..most of my other pictures are on the laptop, which I do not have on me at the moment.
This kitten is Pippy, she is the darkest orange out of this litter (orange and white, orange, creme and white, tortie and tabby tortie....all females! LOL)
This is the tabby tortie--I was calling her Oddball since she was born, but have been recently calling her Camo-kitty, as she blends in with all these fallen leaves!
and...one of the older kittens--Smoochie
just a happy little mushroom :)
and, okay..one pony picture. I kick myself for chopping the eartips off...but it was my first day of playing with the camera! This is my girl, Sadie (Precious Silk MJE)
Oh yes, and the odd Nebula as well ;) My boyfriend is an amateur astronomer and he has been dabbling in astrophotography. I was showing him how to use my camera and we got this great shot of The Great Nebula in Orion. So, Nikon D3100, the 55-200 mm lens I have, a piggyback mount on his telescope (camera mounted on top of the 'scope) and a battery powered tracking device (allows for long exposures and no blur/star trails--the scope follows the stars/planets/nebula at the speed in which they are moving across the sky)
