First year of cub scouts has ended. Zane is now a Wolf. I am so not a scout kind of guy, but we have all really enjoyed the activities we've done this year. It's all what your den makes of it and we all have a great time.

Cleared off the pond to try to get just a couple more weekends of skating in before the big melt happens. Zane is always up for some atv action.

After a long day behind the keyboard I made a quick escape to Staunton to work on a couple panorama photos that i’ve been scoping out. The good light fades quick so I only had time to try a couple compositions. This shot was composed of 8 HDR images spanning around a 180 degree view.

Some image data.

  • Total Rows: 1
  • Row Positions: 8
  • HDR Images Per Postion: 5
  • ISO: 400
  • Aperture: f8
  • Bracket: 5 frames +-1
  • Shutter: 60, 125, 250, 500, 1000

And some beer data!

  • Brewery:
  • Location: Buena Vista CO
  • Beer: Crank Yanker IPA
  • Style: American Indian Pale Ale
  • ABV: 7.0%
  • IBU: 65
  • Hops: El Dorado, Cascade, Magnum
  • Tasting Notes: A good IPA. Malt and bitterness were spot on, but I prefer more hop aroma flavor. It’s there but goes away pretty quick.
