NEW PRESTON CONNECTICUT – The best shot of the day was a three frame stitch of a Church here. What I didn’t realize flying the drone was that I was right on top of the power cables that you see in the bottom of the frame. Power cables of the enemies of drones – they are too small to be seen by the obstacle avoidance system so it’s very easy to hit a cable and crash. A close call and I didn’t realize it.

NEW PRESTON CONNECTICUT – I went out with my drone today to photograph the falls in New Preston. This has been an elusive prey – there’s not decent angle to photograph it from the banks of the stream because of structures, trees and underbrush. But of course with a drone I could fly straight up the stream. The images are all three frames stitched.

NEW PRESTON CONNECTICUT – I’m continuing to explore the capabilities of antique Carl Zeiss Jena lenses. Today I put a 5 cm f1.5 Sonnar from 1936 on my Sony camera. This is actually a lovely lens, quite modern in its performance. Apart from its quirks (the aperture ring doesn’t have click stops, turns the wrong way, isn’t linear, and can’t be moved without changing focus; the focusing ring turns the wrong way) it’s a joy to use.
