Deal Island Excursion by shesnapped

Deal Island Excursion

With a day of warmer weather, dh and I took a quick trip over to Deal Island hoping to take advantage of the moonrise and maybe catch a few birds. No luck on the birds, but contrary to what my little app predicted, the sunset was surprisingly beautiful.

After getting me that awesome long lens for Christmas and giving it to me early, dh still surprised me Chrismas morning with a nifty little fifty! Have to say, there's actually a lot to learn with those little things! (Any tips would be most appreciated!!!) This shot was taken with it, and I was standing as far back from the tree as I could get without stepping into the water behind me. I did switch to my old kit lens a few minutes later so I could zoom out and get the edges of the tree in the shot, but the fifty won the battle against the kit, so I'm forced to post it with a little chopped off... :-)

Loved that little weed in the right of the shot. Didn't notice him until I went to process....
@alophoto I'm calling this hidden treasure because of that weed on the right! Never noticed him that night!

Quite spectacular. The only thing missing is Scarlett O'Hara in her antebellum dress underneath the tree.
