Well after some what catching up on my photography backlog by spending a very hot a humid Saturday behind a CRT rather than paddling I actually can participate in this weeks POW with fresh photos! First off is a testament that ANY tripod is better than no tripod. The first photo was taken with a Cullman 2100 (i think) which is about as rickety of a pod as you can get. It comes in at under 2lbs and is used by me for backpacking and hiking where I would not otherwise take a tripod. I can reverse the center column but the legs don't spread. Anyway, this was a 27 second exposure on the Cullman, and despite me choosing this one 90% of my shots were sharp using it. Happy Birthday America...Baseball and Fireworks!!! So here are my four for the 4th!
