We’re back from our wonderful trip to the Gulf. We stayed in Sea Grove which is located between Panama City and Destin. I’ve heard about many of you in the Northeast who have been trying to dig yourself out of the snow, and I would completely understand if you didn’t care to read any further.
The weather couldn’t have been any better. The nights and mornings were cool, but the days for the most part were in the seventies. There were a few people there but compared to the summer time, we had the beach to ourselves. It was just amazing.
Several mornings I got up early to photograph the sunrise, and the evening skies were filled with the most amazing sunsets.
In Alabama we live on a mountain. It is actually the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains which officially ends in the area. We have some amazing sunsets but sometime it is hard to find a spot to enjoy them. For an example, if you happen to be on the wrong side of the mountain, then you are out of luck. Your view may be blocked by houses or trees.
However, there is nothing to block your view when you overlook the Gulf. There is only sand and miles and miles of blue water.
One evening we were curious about a couple stars and decided to Google them. We discovered that both were planets. The larger is Venus and the smaller is Mercury. The two planets can be seen during this month just after the sun sets in the west for about thirty minutes. Then the two will turn red and slowly fade away.
Maybe you can help me!
I have a problem with one of my SD cards. This is a eight gig card. It was formatted before I began. The card can’t be read from the camera or a card reader. It either doesn’t see the card or I ‘m asked to format it. However, I can view the RAW files on the back of my camera.
I’ve seen a similar problem before with an old point and shoot camera. We were able to retrieve them by taking them to Wolf Camera. However, that ended up costing $50. I was just laid off from my job, so I really need to find a low cost solution. Otherwise, I’ll just have to wait a while.
I’ve seen some programs designed to recover lost files. Is anyone familiar with a free or low cost version?
