New Glass

Credit Card Points converted to Amazon Credits plus a few more greenbacks equals New Macro Lens. Now I just have to figure out how to use the damn thing.

Japanese Maple leaves giving up early. It's only August!!!

    1. I've got to drag this lens down to the stream though I'm always a bit gun shy in bringing expensive toys near water.

    1. Yeah, it's a whole different way of taking pictures - it slows everything down. Tripods. More attention to exposure. Which leads to more attention to lighting. Which leads to more attention to composition. Which will eventually lead to the need for more equipment. Kind of like fly fishing.

  3. Nice textures in your shot. I'm trying so hard to learn more about photography. Wish I'd started years ago.

  4. I packed my good camera for fishing trips all the time but fishing and good cameras don't mix. The rod always won. Always.
