One of my favorite watering holes is the Lagunitas Taproom and Beer Sanctuary in Petaluma, California. Here’s a series of shots I took a few days ago of the brewery’s outdoor fermentation tanks.
Lens: Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L.

At the last exit on my commute home I get off the highway, head towards town, and there’s a roundabout for a new housing development. Halfway around the roundabout is the turn towards this end of the road scene at the Petaluma river.
Lens: Canon EF-S 15-85mm at 24mm. 1/125 second at f/11, ISO 100.

Instead of heading directly home after getting off the freeway at the end of my commute, I headed into town. The local parking garage seemed like a good place to grab a few quick shots so I drove up to the top level, parked and circumnavigated the lot. This view is looking east down Western Avenue towards the Petaluma River.
Lens: Canon EF-S 15-85mm at 38mm. 1/160 second at f/9.0, ISO 100.

It’s approaching the one year mark for my blog and my T2i. I’m not obsessed with anniversaries, but, for fun, I thought I’d post a shot taken today of another angle on the G11 images I showed in my very first post back in August 2010.
Lens: Canon EF-S 15-85mm at 26mm. 1/160 second at F/11, ISO 200.
(Why so many f/11 shots? Because most of my commute shots are taken during the afternoon when the sun is high and bright–and, as every photographer worth their salt should know, f/11 is much sweeter than f/16 after 3:00 PM. ;^)

Just a short hop from the homestead there’s a walking trail with a nice view of Petaluma with Sonoma Mountain in the background. I’ve being looking at this view for a lot of years.
Here’s a 15mm, wide angle view.
And fully zoomed in at 85mm.
Lens: Canon EFS 15-85mm.
