Skiers & Snowboarders on Westridge at Snow Summit, this past Sunday, over 4 miles from my front yard in Fawnskin:





I don't care what you say, Mtngoat John, this is fun!


4 miles Our houses in Idaho are only 2.09 miles apart. Rut Roh

Nice shots Roger!!

Thanks!
Good thing there are like 1,000,000 (maybe more) trees between us!
And I also don't have a drone that can lift this camera.

Those long distance shots are impressive, Roger! What make and model if I may be so bold?

Thank you! They don't always come out that great. Sometimes it's too hazy or there's too much heat/atmosphere shimmering to get pictures that clear that far away. But I can't wait to see more bald eagles!
For the first time in about 15 years, I went with a non-Sony camera. This is the Nikon P1000. I just couldn't resist the 125x optical zoom after R pointed it out to me.

Excellent choice. Did you use a tripod with the shots?

Thanks y'all!

Cap'n Crunch - yes on the tripod for the night shots, no for the ski resort daytime shots, and I don't specifically remember on the ones down by the lake, I think so on the first 2, but maybe not on the duck.

I feel bad for bringing this up again earlier this morning. I was off line all day yesterday so didn't see about Benny's thread. Good idea to keep it all in one place for easy referencing back in case someone actually can come up with a good idea and can use the thread as evidence to make proposals to the powers that be. I copied my earlier post and added a bit to it in the "Big Bear Snowplay" thread. I do think a little quick cross traffic between here and there might be a good thing though.

booboo Von's parking lot looked packed as we were leaving Staters. I guess we just hit the crest of the wave.
