Sharing an Awesome Discovery

I’ve made what I think is an awesome discovery. For the way I shoot it is really very cool, but I doubt my way would work for everyone (maybe not anyone ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ). Nevertheless I’d like to share it because it’s cool, plus I wonder if anyone else's cameras do this. My go-to “walkaround” settings on...

Re: Homestead National Monument, Beatrice, Nebraska

It's wonderful that they left the chains on the tractor, but I especially like the living wall. S- Thanks, Steve. The guy had put the chains on because he was trying to pull stumps on his property with the tractor, but the tractor wasn't up to it. He tried everything, let air out of the tires, put ...
