Picture Perfect

Come Into My Parlor

A few days ago, I took my tripod out on the land. It was a disaster. The legs caught on everything. It took forever to set up, and then I'd wait and wait, but the critters would hide until I packed up and moved on.

So yesterday I tried the monopod. It worked wonderfully. I left it extended with the camera attached. It was easy to drag along, and I could brace the bottom on the ground at an angle and then rest it on my knee or hip to steady the camera. When I got it right, the results were really great.
