Que pasa

Well it appears that my camera is not interacting too well with my new iPhoto and I have lost photos including a very special sunset.  All my own fault actually.  I have been in the habit for years and years of deleting my photos off my camera once I have downloaded them.  However for some strange reason iPhoto or the camera are not downloading all of my photos ( or events as they are called ).  It seems that I will have to try and remember to use the download process 2 or 3 times.  I lost my super moon shots but Colin’s were much better anyway, these were taken without a tripod.


With the full moon we have had extreme high and low tides.  So I have been happy to sit and read and keep an eye on the beach.  My book and my knees and my view.

We have walked everyday but only when the tide is low. However because of the high waves we have not been swimming.

This past Wednesday ( Dec. 6 th ) we had the most spectacular sunset yet this season.

The colors were  deep and very vivid.

This was the sky facing the sunset.  A spectacular reflection.  The sky simply lit up, pretty much in a 360 degree circle.

What a privilege to be here to see this.

Sadly I lost Thursdays sunset photos but there will be many more.

    Great photos. I could feel the warmth and hear the waves just looking at them. I’m thinking about your camera/iphone problem and will email you once I find something. I still have my morning hound walk to do and a ballgame to watch at 2pm, so I may not answer until later but I will answer one way or another.

    Did you take these photos with your camera?

    Maybe send me an email with the step by step process you follow, that would help me.

      I sent you an email about the process I use.

      All photos are taken by me on my small camera, a Canon SX600HS, unless I say otherwise. I never take a photo with my iPhone which I am not using here in Mexico but that might change. The moon shots were taken by Colin with our larger travel camera ( not his professional cameras ) which is a Canon SX60HS.

    Beautiful beautiful photos!

    Thank you for sharing!

    FYI… to download all of your photos you can do that by basically connecting to the camera and selecting the images from the actual peripheral and creating a folder to download them too. Bypassing the i photo library, you can then upload them to the i photo library if you want. This way, you ensure that the images are all downloaded. Nothing would be missed. Once again, gorgeous images!

      Thank you for the suggestion. Colin does this all the time. I have always done it in what is the easy way for me as I like to open each image in a full image and then I decide which photos I will use.
