Montauk photos

I took a couple of photos at Rita's Stables today. She runs an ad every year in one of those Montauk mini-papers, and she has three calves at her petting zoo that she'd like to feature. Two of them were cuddled up together, and I had to lead the third one over.

A guy brought his family to the petting area, saw my camera, pointed at the lens hood, and asked what it was for. I looked over and saw him wearing a Canon EOS DSLR around his neck. I explained to him what a lens hood is and what it does, and wondered if he's ever going to move beyond the kit lens.

Tonight I went out to try and catch some of the sunset light over Hither Hills. There's this one big dune, sand on one side and grass on the other, that I always liked. I was hoping that it would get a nice orange cast from the sunset, but it was not to be. Nevertheless, I did get two nice images out of the trip.

Fix your server. And while you're at it, you should put up a link that just goes to a thumbnailed archive of all of your nature photos. Some of us endure the writing to see the purdy pictures.
