    Springtime Color & Pirates!

    I hit the park at opening Sat before the crowds got too crazy. It wasn't bad until about 10:30. Even Indy had a short wait.

    The Spring flowers and colors are amazing this time of year and then I tested my new Pentax K30 on Pirates and a few other rides. I rode 3 times in a row adjusting the settings each time till I got what I liked.
    I ended up with these settings: 1/100 F1.9 iso6400 exp+3 and the white balance set to Tungsten lighting.

    What a great day at the park!

    Re: Springtime Color & Pirates!

    Great pictures and thanks for the report. We'll be there next week (actually April 7-10 in the actual parks). I'm a little bummed about the weather report a week out though. Supposed to be showers on Monday and highs in the 60's. I was hoping for something high 70s low 80's. Oh well, at least I'll be in Disneyland!

    Love the pics! Wish I could upgrade my dSLR body as mine only goes up to ISO 1600! But it's only my hobby, and not my career.

    Gorgeous pics! I will never have nor figure out how to operate a real camera so it's lovely to see pictures of those who do/can!
    I wish I had a cool signature to insert here, but I don't.

    Fantastic pictures! The weather was very good this past week, and the park was especially beautiful.

    Re: Springtime Color & Pirates!

    Wow! These pictures are so awesome! Thank you, for posting. I always love when TR's include pictures. Makes me feel a little bit closer to DL and DCA. I live 12 hours away so I don't have the luxury of visiting DL and DCA as often as would like. When great pics like these are posted it just helps me to feel a little less homesick for Disneyland. LOL! Yes, I know DL isn't my home but that is the best word I could think of to describe the way I miss my visits to DL and DCA. Thank you, again for such a great post!

    Thanks! I actually learned most of the DSLR settings and tips from all the great photographers that post here on Micechat! This is my first DSLR and I've had it about a month so I'm still trying to figure it out.

    Beautiful!! The third pic down of NOS/HM area especially. Where was that taken from?

    It almost looks like you were sitting in a tree!

    Now where are you going to find a tree to climb in that area?

    Ha Ha Ha, Duh me!! I don't 'do' the treehouse (bad ankle=stairs bad!) now & really haven't been up there since I don't know when, it was still Swiss Family Robinson the last time I was up there & I guess I never paid too much attention to the view. I just couldn't envision that view of the HM from there. I actually had to go to Google Earth & get as close it as possible & swing the compass direction around to try to picture it. I pictured the treehouse to be more tucked behind (for lack of a better term) the NOS buildings than it actually is.


    As much as I hate stairs (& they hate me) I just may have to try to do it next time. The view is awesome!
