St. George, Utah. Dec.9, 2013. It was a pinkish sunset that evening. The background ended up this way because I was shooting slightly uphill. Sony A77 with a Sony 70/400 zoom at 400, from a tripod using a wireless remote shutter release. 1/200 F10 ISO 100. This remote is fabulous, “RPS Studio”. I can slow the shutter speed down and get 1 more f-stop depth of field which is greatly appreciated with a lens this long. With a 1.5 magnification I am really shooting at 600. In low light it’s indispensable. When you want to crop in a little tighter, ISO 100 lets you do that.
