Hay fever

It’s a busy weekend with the band so I’m not finding time for new shots–but, hey, they’re all new if no one has seen them. Last week I posted some photos I took while out on a drive through the local countryside. Here’s another image from the same shoot–in fact, this is the field that’s only partially in view in my “Old County Road” post.

Lens: Canon EF-S 15-85mm at 85mm. 1/400 second at f/11, ISO 200.

A gang of angles

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.

Petaluma Bridge

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. ;^)

Old cypress

This small, old stand of cypress out in the middle of a field immediately caught my eye. I’m not sure I can explain why the scene drew me in, but the shot definitely conveys what attracted my imagination–metaphorically. I’m going to leave it at that.
