New Year, New Camera

I have started the new year off right, by getting a new camera.
So with a new camera comes the need to get out and try it.
All pictures were taken with the Sony RX10 Mark4.
I am very happy with the results and can't wait to try it once there are more birds and also flowers outside.


This is shot at 600mm, handheld. This is an Amaryllis.


Unfortunately I have lots of snow to practice on.


Another shot at full zoom, which is 600mm.The Eagle was too far away, but even on a cropped picture it shows good focus and sharpness.


The day I went out some of the trees had a layer of hoar frost on them. That always makes a pleasing scene.


As I was about ready to head for home, the fog, or perhaps ice crystals rolled in. 
These trees caught my eye, as they were somewhat shrouded by the fog.

Make a joyful noise unto God, all ye lands.
Psalm 66:1

  5. I'm afraid my Canon PowerShot A650 IS will never take photos like yours, but I do what I can with it, being pleasantly surprised at times. I know you will so enjoy capturing God's glorious beauty with your new camera. Looking forward to seeing and enjoying all that you share here, not just in photos but words also.

  9. My first DSLR about 14 years ago was a Sony, and it served me well. It just got too heavy for me to lug around. These photos are so crisp and the color so pleasing. Enjoy it!

  12. Great captures....were the shots taken with autofocus on or manual focus? That Eagle shot is great for being cropped. And can you set the focusing point on your new camera. I guess I should go look it up. I glanced at it before but didn't retain anything I read. I think cause I feel like I don't get to go enough to need to get a new camera. But I still get the urge when I am out sometimes.

  15. Happy and Healthy New year to you and your family, Ruth! I can see you are excited about your new camera, and I agree it takes clear, sharp and beautiful photos. I seem to be relying more and more on my cell phone camera these days for convenience, but a real camera's telephoto capabilities are so much better and I miss that.

  17. This is so exciting Ruth! I love seeing the pictures you took with your new Sony! Great capture of the amaryllis, handheld too! 600 mm zoon is incredible, wow! The most I have is an 18-300 mm lens. It does a good job, but I think your new camera has it beat! The picture of the eagle is amazing! Quite exciting to get such a great shot! And I loved your last shot of the foggy trees, beautiful! Many blessings to you!
