Christmas Tree in Bokeh

Mmm, I love this time of year. I’m a sucker for the magic that Christmas lights create. This is the tree at the office. I like how, even though the whole image is out of focus, there’s a definite subject distinct from the background and foreground.

Shootin’ the Moon

My sister Mel pleaded on Facebook earlier this evening: “Will someone with a camera that takes decent night pictures PLEASE take a picture of that moon?” So I decided what the heck, I’d just picked up a Canon 1.4x extender which was still sitting in the box yet unused, so I figured this was as […]

It rained a lot on Friday night, but the sun breaking through the clouds on Saturday made the rain worth it. Pa’rus is a leisurely walk from Canyon Junction back to the campgrounds / visitor center, which crosses over the river several times. Have to say that I’m loving the LX5.

The Coast

This week’s Photography Friday entry: The Coast. I took this back in 2008 when I was rocking the 40D + 10-22mm. Taken at the beach in Carlsbad, California while joining the Knight family on their yearly beach camping trip (which was a total blast. I’d love to do it again). Anyhow, I dug this photo […]
