Got up and out of the house before the sun was up for a Cars and Coffee on Saturday. Since the sun was actually above the horizon when I first got there, I started out using the 1963 Nikon 50mm. It did a glorious job.

I eventually switched over to the 18-300mm.

Later in the day, after the sun went down, I went down the street to shoot an Iridium Flare. This is a -8.0 magnitude flare from Iridium 97 as it passed over St. Petersburg at 7:02 PM. That’s the Snell Isle Bridge at the bottom of the frame. This is a 36-second exposure at 18mm, f/5, and ISO 100. Good times.

That’s all I got for now.
