I figured I would start this thread since some people have asked about it. Current setup is a Sony a6400 and a couple lenses. Most used are the Sigma 150-600 Contemporary and the Sony 18-135.

I use Darktable or Lightroom to process the raw files. Any weird processing artifacts are due to my mistakes learning to use the programs. I am definitely making lots of mistakes and learning as I go.

I'll use this thread to post random photos for anyone interested. Most will be from Anza-Borrego, a few might be from elsewhere. Any feedback or tips are welcome.

The two sunrise pictures above were taken with the Sony 10-18 lens.

Some more:

I need to get some noise reduction software. Taken on a cloudy day with a high shutter speed to try and catch this one in flight, Sigma 150-600C:


Not the type of creature I was trying to capture in flight, Sigma 150-600C:


It works for more than just animals, Sigma 150-600C:

A couple more.







I came face to face with this guy. Hiked over a ridge and smelled sheep. A couple seconds later he appeared right in front of me. By the time I got the camera out he had wandered off a ways.

Where you see this look a lot is with sun rise/set types of photos.

Hadn't processed this one yet. Same night and view as one previously posted above, just a different focal length.


An alternate closer crop of one probably already posted:

Another variation on one already posted:


This is a crop from a larger panorama:


This one is from last night. I've been enjoying the badlands colors:


More lambs. None were great photos because they were so far away. I haven't been able to find the lambs again despite looking. Only saw them one day this season so these are from a couple weeks ago now:
