Cute shot, Monnie . Tonight was a momentous occasion...............................for the first time in the entire time we've lived here (since 1996), we had trick-or-treaters come to door. Of course we've always had candy on-hand...just in case.
She was trying to look cute, Skippy. I think the black under her eyes makes her look fierce. I wish I had left that off. Our local Publix had TorTing from 4-7 PM. Since Elizabeth and Dusting work til 6, I volunteered to take her. You know they really had to twist my arm.
Williard, the light on the larch is perfect. What exactly is a larch? I'm not familiar with it.

Larches are conifers in the genus Larix, in the family Pinaceae. Growing from 15 to 50m tall, they are native to much of the cooler temperate northern hemisphere, on lowlands in the north and high on mountains further south. Larch are among the dominant plants in the immense boreal forests of Russia and Canada.
Although a conifer, the larch is a deciduous tree and loses its leaves in the autumn.
The needles turn a marvelous yellow color in the fall when they fall. Also called a tamarack around here.

549 pictures have just become 246!!! I am still struggling with manual settings, and how to get shots of a parade in the dark where people are carrying torches of fire is still a mystery!!! Now to go back and do the editing of the 246 pictures!!!
Use aperture priority at the lowest possible f stop you have. Set your shutter speed to at least 1/60 and raise the ISO until you get a fairly decent exposure. That is a place to start. Then as you get used to doing you can make better adjustments.
