Talk about a week folks! Last week found some days approaching 60 degrees in my area, which is Southern Wisconson. I had some great days in the field. Seeing Common Loons on small area lakes during a stopover on their migration northward. And that was a good thing indeed, as the Northern half of my state as well as bordering states got hit with a late Winter storm over the weekend. Many places receiving a couple feet, we've gotten my guess of 4-6 inches in our area. So besides the Loon picture this week, I got some pics of some of the Lighthouses in our area getting buffeted by 15-foot waves. That was just what I experienced.
Apple's powerhouse iMac Pro wows with stellar performance and design Happy New Year everyone! I'm wishing you a healthy Happy New Year! To start off the year I thought I'd share some things I learned about or reviewed the last few weeks of 2017.
1. Something that will make its way to my camera bag shorty, the "Platypod" What is a Platypod?
Platypod makes flat tripods. They are the world's most compact mini tripod bases for photographers. Inspired by the duck-billed platypus, an animal with flat and broad feet, we designed our camera supports to be ideal for low-angle shots and situations where traditional tripods are cumbersome or impractical.
Their flat design makes them strong. Platypods can support even the biggest DSLR cameras and the heaviest lenses. Platypods can also become a portable studio, with accessory holes that are compatible with strobes. Website: https://platypod.com
2. A review I found interesting from NASIM MANSUROV between Microsoft Surface Book 2 vs Apple MacBook Pro

3. I have both a Max out iMac and a 2013 MacPro that I used primarily for my editing options. Apples recent release of the new iMac Pro though is Impressive! Plus it just looks awesome in the SpaceGrey Color. Here's a great review from the folks at AppleInsider:
