  1. Helo Forum, I recently moved to a location that has a lighthouse near buy. I plan to go there and try my luck photographing it at night. The lighthouse has a concentrated beam of light every few seconds My goal is to capture the light beam, but, not as a sunstar. Regarding the lense I plan to use, probably my 10-24mm. I’m looking for any settings help that will help my accomplish getting the shot. Any thoughts of dynamic range, ISO, etc., settings would be appreciated. My other two lenses that I use are the 55-200, and the 18-55. I thought the 10-24 would provide me with a being wide range capture. My camera is the X-T2. Again, any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance. Tom

  3. Hello Forum, I thought I would invest in a fish eye lens for my X-T2 to try capturing some creative pictures. I found three on B&H photo and thought I would reach out for some good and bad feedback as to the best one to purchase. Here are the three I found: 7artisans Photoelectric 7.5mm f/2.8 Fisheye Lens for Fujifilm X @ $139 Rokinon 8mm f/2.8 UMC Fisheye II Lens for Fujifilm X Mount @$249. Samyang 8mm f/2.8 Fisheye II Lens for Fujifilm X Mount @$239. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance, Tom

    Litchfield County Connecticut Root Cellar What is a root cellar? Traditionally speaking, any cool, moist, underground space set aside for long-term storage of vegetables, fruits, and even meats and cheeses, is a root cellar.

    FORDSON SUPER MAJOR 1917 Tractor Berlin Fair Connecticut September 2017 Between 1917 and 1922, the Fordson was for tractors somewhat like the Ford Model T was for automobiles—it captured the public's imagination and widely popularized the machine, with a reliable design, a low price affordable for workers and farmers, a widespread dealership network, and a production capacity for large numbers. Just as the Model T helped the public to appreciate how soon cars and trucks might replace most horses in transport, the Fordson helped people to appreciate how soon tractors might replace most horses in farming (advancing the mechanization of agriculture). As with cars, Ford never had the market to itself, but it dominated the market for a time (for cars, roughly 1910-1925; for tractors, roughly 1917-1925). Ford was the only automotive firm to sell cars, trucks and tractors simultaneously from 1917 to 1928
