A Test-run for the Sony DSC H50

A Good traveler has no fixed plans.
and is not intent on arriving.
Lao Tzu

That's about how it seemed on this day...when I was
just looking for subjects to try out my the new Sony H50.
A yellow cat always seems like a good subject along the side
of the road...and she was curious enough to oblige.
An Old Country Barn....


Aha! This was a good test... A Red Tail flying overhead

Scenic old bridge with lots of green around

I loved the reflection of the sky in the water at the dam

I tried my hand at macro


Capturing action...as these ducks were paddling away

A little treasure who thinks he is hidden from me

Gotta be quick and inventive to get the Amish in their buggies

If you click you will see the toddler's bare feet hanging
out of the buggy's door

Not sure what this building was, but I like the way it looked
All I can say is "Holy Sheep"

There was a lot of them in these fields
These were 'utterly' hanging out

One lone Llama


Couldn't pass up a deer posing for me

Or a Killdeer in the grass

Groundhog on top of a hill
Not bad for a test run.....

Well done with the Killdeer I have yet to see one. They can sometimes be seen where I live (UK) especially in Norfolk. A wonderful bird.
Your Groundhog photo is great, that's something else I would like to see, but I don't think I will here in the UK!
Llama are such wonderful animals, they always bring a tear to my eye. To me they seem almost mystical.

Looks like you broke it in good this first time out. Like all the variety.

Terrific testing of the new camera!! Nice to meet another Sony fan too. Looked to me like every photo was a success.

PS I think you'll find those 'udderly' sheep might actually be rams.....LOL.

Thanks to everyone. The Sony H50 is a keeper after all. It has noise software built in and with the help of BG we were able to get it on the correct setting for the best pictures. And BruceSC: You are absolutely right about the sheep being Rams. Those large appendages are testicles and not udders.

WOW, these are great shots! Congrats to you on the new camera but I have a feeling it's the photographer that captures the essence of these shots and not the camera. Great job!

Really cool pics i acquired a new DSC h50 by god grace after looking at your pics i think i made the right choice. I'm a total beginner. My question is what sort of setting work when we photgraph birds really up close?
