One new photograph, almost every day of the year

We visited the Kenai Peninsula in Alaska last week and stopped near Nikiski to look at a jack-up oil rig that was docked. The erector-set type features of the rig and the sun low in the sky made an interesting graphic silhouette. What’s fascinating to me about the Nikon Z7 mirrorless camera is that the electronic view finder reveals exactly what your photograph will be when you take it. In this case, I could see the starburst appear exactly as I hoped it would in the frame the instant I took the photograph.
