#264915 Painted over 50 years ago

Posted by LightMeter on 07 January 2021 - 11:51 PM

Look what l caught on one of Virtual Railfan's live railcams on Youtube! ln March 1970, the Great Northern Railway merged with 3 other railroads to become the Burlington Northern RR. Great Northern went to the sky blue color in 1967. So the freight car was painted between 1967 and 1970. The last time l saw a GN freight car in service was about 2001. Never thought l'd see one again. The last image is a model showing what the paint scheme looked like.

#264895 Got a new battery for D7100.

Posted by LightMeter on 31 December 2020 - 04:26 PM

The 2 batteries l have still have decent battery life, but are almost 7 years old. So l got a EN-EL15b from B&H. The 2 old batteries will still serve as extras when l'm on a photo outing. l thought about getting an off brand for about half the price, but figured it's better to get a genuine Nikon battery.

#264811 Back to the funeral museum.

Many pics from the first outing were not too good. So we went back with a tripod. Got some good ones of my favorite hearses and Ghana fantasy coffins. The high res images look much better with a tripod. Much less noise at lower ISO and no camera shake with slow shutter speeds.
