Western Tanager, Vol. 84 No. 4, March-April 2018

Photo taken with Sony Point & Shoot, model Cyber-shot DSC RX-100. The ISO was 400 on  Program option under Picture Effect using the Retro setting. I like this camera as it offers  different settings and photo options. I changed from film to 100% digital about 15 years ago after  Tom Stephenson and Eddie Thomas gave a talk on digiscoping. Owens Valley and the Eastern  Sierra are the perfect playground for stunning photos. Clouds almost always add flavors of  texture, complexity, action and intensity to photos.  I've been a member of LAAS since I was 17. I grew up with the chapter and continue to be involved with  leading bird trips that my husband (and LAAS Field Trip Chair) Nick organizes. Apart from scenic shots, I  also love illustrating and photographing birds. — Mary Freeman
