I decided I needed to give the 5DM3 a go during the commute home today. I ended up going all the way out to Fort Cronkhite on the Marin Headlands to get this photo. What I learned along the way is that a full frame sensor camera handles depth of field way differently than a crop sensor camera. Time to tame the beast.
Lens: Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 at 105mm. 1/640 second at f/8.0, ISO 200. (All 105mm posts so far with this lens!?!)

I took this shot back in April. It’s a view of what I see every day during the last leg of my commute home. The grass will grow longer and turn brown by June, and the deciduous oaks will fill in and darken, but this is the mise en scène of southern Sonoma County.
Lens: Canon EF-S 15-85mm at 31mm. 1/100 second at f/11, ISO 100.

Here’s another shot from yesterday’s commute stop. It was 3:45 PM on a Thursday and I was there all by my lonesome.
Lens: Canon EF-S 15-85mm at 22mm. 1/250 second at f/9.0, ISO 100.

Pride of Madeira and Monkey Flower are in full bloom on the edges of the San Francisco Bay. I took this “intimate” shot at Fort Baker on a brief stop today during my commute home.
Lens: Canon EF-S 15-85mm at 78mm. 1/60 second at f/5.6, ISO 100.

I’ve worked across the road from Bayfront Park in Menlo Park for nearly 13 years. I run the trails there 3 or 4 days a week and, because it’s a convenient stop during my commute home, have photographed it in all kinds of weather. Looking northeast from the park’s entrance, this was this afternoon’s view of Flood Slough.
Lens: Canon EF-S 15-85mm at 15mm. 1/160 at f/9.0, ISO 100.
