I had written an earlier post about all the lens that I had rented and wanted to rent/buy for my Canon DSLR. Now that I own a full frame camera, I have been yearning to collect all the good lens available in market. From my previous list, I already tried Fisheye Lens and it was great. But I was not a big fan of the 180 degree images that it produced. I prefer a normal wide angle lens for landscapes.
We visited Global Winter Wonderland in Sacramento for Christmas and the photos that I took there came out really well. I am completely satisfied with the quality of pictures from my full frame camera. Even though I shot in complete darkness, my photos came out pretty sharp. I wanted to share the beautiful pics with you guys. Please let me know what you feel about these pics.
I bought a new full frame camera and it is a dream come true as I have been wanting to purchase a professional camera for quite sometime now. I always felt my entry level DSLR was not capable of taking good photos. I would look at photos taken by some friends using their full frame camera and wish I had one too. So finally I got one for myself and did a first photo shoot at a Rose garden nearby.
These days, I am keenly interested in photography and am always on the lookout for lenses, filters and what not. All these days, I used to struggle with the technology, but I have now crossed that boundary and am no longer an amateur. I know how to take relatively good pictures using the equipment that I own. Now in order to move forward, I need good lenses. So I am eyeing some lenses and want to try these and then buy them, when I can.
We drove to Blossom trail on a weekend to catch these beauties. There were Almond blossoms, Plum blossoms, Apple blossoms and Citrus blossoms which had white petals. Apricot blossoms, Peach and Nectarine blossoms had pink petals. It was great strolling midst these orchards looking at flowers and bees. I love flowers and love photographing them a lot.
We made a 4 day trip to Death Valley National Park last year. We saw snow capped mountains, snow lying on the ground, salt deposits, sand dunes, Joshua trees, lakes, canyons – such diversity in landscape that we were in awe of its natural beauty.
First day, we drove to Death Valley via Sequoia National Park (freeway 178). This route was pretty scenic, especially when we crossed Walker Pass. We took a small detour and entered Lone Pine city to catch a glimpse of the tallest mountain in California – Mt. Whitney. There were many peaks in Sierra Nevada mountain range and it was difficult to spot Mt. Whitney among them. We went to a gift shop and inquired, upon which the person at the counter pointed us to the right peak. Lone Pine peak looks taller as it is closer.
… in me. 2013 is already over! It was a year in which I was really sad because of some bad events. But also was very happy because some good things happened. This year made me realize that no matter what goes wrong, my husband is going to be there to support and comfort me.
When recently some of my unmarried friends asked me if I lost independence after marriage, I had a good laugh. My husband has given me freedom and encouragement to do whatever I like. I wonder why people keep cribbing about losing independence after marriage.
