I used to have a Kodak EaseyShare and now I have the Canon Rebel XTi with the 18-55mm and 75-300mm lenses.

Taken with the Kodak




Taken with the Canon




This last photo is my first attempt at using the techniques I've learned recently. Would have been a great shot had the tripod not moved (damn tide coming in and out) and had I not chopped off the top of the tree on the rock to the left.  :snare:

Cool.  I work at the cheese factory, so if you get that way, I run the vats on days.  If you like fresh curd, let me know I can hook ya up!  :thumbs:


Those rocks are just north of Garibaldi.

lol your curd offering sounds dirty haha

i'm not much of a cheese fan. i'm boring and ask for chedder only whenever i order something that comes with cheese. :(

I've been practicing taking pictures of not-so-great things in the hopes of getting better at composition, I think.



And the moon is freek'in hard to photograph.

It's really hard to post pics right behind Kyle. 

I had to get up early one morning, and the fog was incredible.




And I had to put the truck in the picture on this one.  That is the Mini-Guppy in front of the last remaining blimp hanger.

Sorry :gap:

I love fog shots, but I'm too hooked on high contrast to expose them properly.

Here's another for ya.

You really know how to pour salt into the wounds!!  :rofl2: 

Have you ever thought about a vacation with National Geographic?  They do those expeditions that you can go with them.  Wife and I would love to do this once the kids are out of the house.  We think this would be awesome.

It's not mad skills, it just knowing what to look for, timing and lighting!!  I love the last two. 

Next time I get to Fresno, I'm going to see Yosemite.  We are planning a trip to Yellowstone next summer.

Very nice!
Play with your camera settings and adjust the warmth to warmer next time. :thumbs:
Or if you can't adjust the warmth, change the white balance to "shade" and that will make it warmer.
