Very nice.  Looks like it was taken with a long range lens because the depth of field brings out the focus on the leaf.

Create an album. Put them there. Or just click the photo icon in the toolbar and locate the image on your hard disk.

Thanks for starting the group.  I hope we get more members and more photos from around the country or the world for that matter.

Well, post more and put a link to the group in your signature or something.

In the end this is still a golf forum, so we're drawing from photographers who are mostly golfers. Maybe there are a lot out there. I hope so. But I don't know...

Close, it's the Owens Valley in California, not too far from the Nevada border.  Both pictures were taken within 100 yards of each other (that truck was parked below and to the left of the radio telescope).

It was a bit of a challenge to keep them looking like stars. Even with the moon lighting the dish, it took about a 30 second exposure, so if you look closely, they're already starting to trail.

Actually, although I like that photo a lot, it has some technical problems that make it hard to use as a print. In addition to the stars trailing, the dish was actually moving during the photo, so if you look closely at its edge it has some motion blur. It's hard to see online (especially in the low-res version here), but it's distracting in print.

Ok, I did a search and nothing about posting photos you have taken recently, but I did discover that there were some people on here into photography. So this thread may go well or just get ignored. But anyway, post up some of your favourite photos you have taken. Me personally, I like cityscapes, day or night, but love night or dusk. Here Goes.

Very nice! I'm more into iPhonography than full photography at the moment. Started out mainly as a budgetary constraint but not I enjoy the challenge of making a scene lok great with only a couple of apps.

Some of my stuff:

Nice work both of you!  Check out our photography spot in the groups section and maybe you can get it kick started.  One day I'll get around to processing and posting a few pics myself....

    • Many specialty clubs are Black Anodized  Steel these days. Not that long ago, the new thing was BE (Berylium Copper (or however you spell it). Those were FUGLY and I hated them when doing QC for Acushnet. Not to mention they are probably toxic.  ( I do not really know that). Just about all (or at least many) of  the new hybrids are black including the face and sole. It has been stated that folks used to allow the BE wedges to intentionally rust to give them more "bite".
    • Greetings @PaddyMac . Was out one a windy day last November, and joined a couple of players from a local college golf team. One player was from Ireland, and had an XStiff driver with 8* loft. The last hole was a 440-yd. par 4 into a 35 MPH wind. (My tees were only 390 yds.) He hit a line drive that never got 15 feet off the ground; it carried out to about 270, and then ran out another 50 yards. My drive from the shorter tees, a solid hit for me, came up about 40 yards short of his, despite my starting advantage. So, I think I understand why you want a shaft that will help you keep the ball lower, in case the wind blows.  As for your driving iron, a couple of extra things to consider. Your new AMT shaft will be heavier than the KKBlack:
            Regular: 108 - 90 = 18 grams // Stiff:........112 - 93 = 19 grams Roughly 18 more grams of weight for the new shaft means the swingweight will increase by +2 units. That will more than cancel out the -1/4 inch trim that would have decreased swingweight by about 0.7 units. As for shims, you would have weigh it. I have limited actual reshafting exerience and none involved shims. @boogielicious, any tips on shims? For other details, check out the Callaway Customization measurement guidelines.
    • I was 6 or 7 years old the first time I played a full 18 holes with my dad, not sure if we played by the proper rules but I remember that I shot 121 (Probably with a few mulligans).  I think I still have that 20+ year old scorecard somewhere in my parents basement, I was pretty proud of myself from what I can remember.
    • Yes, of course. I would only fix it if I was waiting to putt and I noticed a pitch mark. 
    • I like to think I leave the course better than I found it.  This includes ball marks, divots and trap raking (not that I am ever in traps).  I fix lots of ball marks on almost every hole.  I play mostly private and they are not a lot better than the public courses I play on. I use a single tine tool or a tee.  FWIW at a  country club that I play regularly they give out the single tine tool and their "how to" specifically says do not twist a forked tool it breaks the roots. http://foregreens.com/images/ForeGreens_0009.jpg
