Sunset over Central Ridge
For Christmas, Hallie and Nick gave me a small tripod to assist me in taking pictures with my Coolpix P600, particularly useful in situations when the shutter speed is slow, such as nighttime shots or staged indoor shots. Hallie had a great time playing with it and taking delayed timer shots. I observe that almost everyone is more comfortable with the camera than I am. Oh well.
But I left the tripod behind Friday evening (Dec. 26), when I took the dogs and the camera and went out to tramp the south field. It was dusk and I just loved being outside to observe the landscape in the rapidly fading light. And then we had a rather spectacular sunset. KW

Very pretty photos! I'm not more comfortable with your camera--just more easily amused with the one thing I learned how to do.

Gorgeous photos. I've never used a tripod. I would have to read the manual to know how to do it and, well, I'm not a manual reader. LOL

Have fun with your new accessory! And Happy New Year!
