If you ever visit Los Angeles this is something you must do. Just bring a long lens. I shot this with the Canon 70-200 but did a pretty mean crop. But hey, that’s what having 50 megapixels is for right?
I think in one day on Oahu I got more nice photos than anywhere else I’ve ever been in my life, except maybe Death Valley. The landscape on Oahu is so diverse and the island is so photogenic, photography is just easier there.
For the look of this photo, I used a mix of Nik’s Color Efex Pro and Lightroom . . .
While in Zion National Park this winter with my wife and other fam, we were just looking at one the views when my sister in law spotted a strange shape on the mountain. I just thought it was snow gathering on one of the trees but it seemed like it was moving. So I pulled out my Canon 70-200mm lens and slapped it onto my A7r and got a closer look. And lo and behold, a lone mountain climber.
This is a shot of New York City from the Statue of Liberty, or Liberty Island. It was a perfectly clear day and the city was crystal clear.
This was my first time to New York so I obviously had to visit the Statue of Liberty. I do so against the recommendations of a native New Yorker friend of mine who recommended not to do it as it will take a big chunk of time out of your day. He was right. It took a big chunk of time out of the day and I wouldn't recommend it if you have limited time in NYC, but. . . I'm still glad I did because no where else in New York City can you get a shot like this.
I wanted to come back here at night, to get some galaxy shots but you know how it goes when you're travel. Got side tracking shooting other locations.
Next time I go to Yosemite I hope to catch a little bit of weather. Maybe camp out and get some sunrises as well.
