Feathers Friday

Happy Feathers Friday.

Not much going on here. Like the rest of the country, we’re just holed up in the house here in Denver waiting for the COVID-19 storm to blow through. It could be a while.

In the meantime, I’ve been staying busy in the office. Editing stock photos, getting new stock agencies up to date, cleaning up the PC’s, updating the software.

I updated my DXO Photolab Elite from version 2 to version 3. I’ve always liked this program and the new version is an improvement, mostly on the keywording front. I use this software on the laptop and it’s getting the job done.

I mentioned this in an earlier post but it is worth mentioning again. I’ve been using a open source program for monitor color calibration called DisplayCAL. This is a very good alternative program for monitor calibration if you have any of the current color meters such as Color Munki or Spyder or other common brands. It will do dual monitors and you can run as many copies as you like. I’ve loaded it on the laptop too, and the color matches my desktop PC almost perfectly. Highly recommended.

Not much in the way of photography happening right now. Everything is shut down here and winter weather has brought us another snow storm. I get a chuckle out of the TV news. Any time they mention the month of March, they have to tag on that “March is our snowiest month of the year.” Well, I’ve lived here in Colorado since 1987, I have that fact down now.

Was in the process of planning a trip out to Dinosaur National Monument in May but I don’t think that’s going to be happening. With the hotels and restaurants shutting down and other travel issues, it’s not a good idea to invest any time or money on travel at the moment. It’s not going anywhere, I can always pick it up later.

Today’s photo is another one of the shots I got of Sandhill cranes in Monte Vista last week. Feathers Friday. Lots of Sandhill crane photos. It is what it is.
