‘Just My Yucca’

Another Yucca shot from Tuesday night.   Really thought I was going to have another good sunset under a rain shower tonight but alas, the KS wind had to kick up.  I really like my tripod, but I don’t think it will be as steady as I need in 45 mph wind.

Hope everyone has a good Cinco De Mayo today.  I’m hoping mine will be good if a certain package arrives in the mail like it should.  Over the weekend I was able to track down a Tokina UWA lens and it should be here tomorrow.  These may be my last shots with my Sigma 10-20.  Might have to stay up late this weekend to test out the f/2.8 on some milky way/star scenes.

  5. lol, love the title. Nice pun. Great image.

    What MM lens did you end up getting? IDK if you have ever used a Tokina before, but everyone I have has been built like a tank. I swear the 12-24 is explosion proof…

    • I purchased the AT-X 116 11-16mm f/2.8. Ever since I purchased my first DSLR I’ve loved taking star scenes and long exposures. I experimented with a couple of Milky Way shots in the past with my Sigma lens but the f/4 limited me in those type of shots. I’ve loved my Sigma 10-20 and that is the only area that it didn’t fulfill what I wanted. Cant wait to try it out.

  6. Love the warm tones from the sun in this shot. Can’t wait to see what’s coming with the new glass.

  7. What tripod do you have? I am in the market for one 🙂 Love the shot with the sun peeking through the leaves! Good luck with the new glass!

    • I have a Monfrotto 190XPROB with a 498rc2 Ball head. First good tripod I have owned. Have always used the wal-mart brand or free ones that come with a camera. Makes all the difference in the world.
