I got it! Earlier on in the year, there were a few flamingos in one of the Beef Island ponds and I was not able to zoom in close enough to take good pictures. That started my search for a zooms lens for my camera. I eventually purchased a nikkor 55or-200mm lens. Yesterday I saw this bird in the pond and I did not take my camera with me. I did so this morning and yep, the bird was there!
Yesterday on my way home from work, I saw this aircraft on the runway getting ready to take off. It is not a regular sight to see this type of plane in our airport. So luckily I had my camera with me so I stopped and took some pictures.
The plane was waiting for another one to land so of course I took pictures of the one that was approaching the airport.
You can actually see the pilots in the cock pit. I like the fact that I was able to get my camera to focus on the plane and not on the fence that was the object before the plane. Great!
I am using New Paint to enhance my photos and am having alot of fun with them. It is amazing that you can achieve an 'new' photo by just choosing another option. The next thing I have work on is maybe putting my name and copyright markings on my photos. Just have to find the easiest way of doing this!
