This evening, as I headed out to get a can of cream of chicken soup to cook tonight's pork chops in, I noticed a wonderful blue night sky right outside of my back door. I took a couple of hand held shots, but realized I needed a tripod to get a steady shot. Out came my new (Thanks mom and Lisa!) tripod. Thanks too to my sweet husband who got me the piston grip ball head for my new tripod. I was a rotating fool playing with my options.
(Although said husband also laughed as I tried to pull out the legs of the tripod in our skinny, little entryway - I was not definitely not doing it right.)
But it did a beautiful job steadying the picture. I'm not sure it is a brilliant photo, but I thought it was neat how the tree branches showed up so white.
