Yup, kind of like how sand from the Sahara can end up in the southern US. It's almost like we're all on the same planet! :laugh:
Planet? What planet? You mean plane?

It is much less exciting than it sounds. Also, I fell in a creek.

Thick mist on boat trip. Caught eagle swooping down to the leftovers of a bait ball. Heavily post-processed to reduce the fog (it was like soup).

I never did see any Moose. I had to make do... Random place in Prince Rupert.

Long time in between posts for me. I made a thing. I have a lot to learn about audio and transitions and video editing. Davinci Resolve 18 is awesome but I am learning. Hope you enjoy.

Changing my life real soon and need to get set for an uncertain future. Trading out a bunch of kit and upgrading one last time. Bought an RF100-500L against the trade-in of a bunch of stuff accumulated during lock-down. Got my lens through. Had an odd issue with it...

double trouble.jpg

My honesty is an irritant and I wish I weren't this way but I've contacted the vendor to inform of the 'issue'.

Maybe the telephoto Gods will be pleased with me?

Hm, I've heard of a bad lens producing a double image, but I've never heard of a double lens before. That sounds problematic indeed.

Found the fire - but way to tired to get my pix off my SD card tonight. I may have taken just under 2000 pictures today. Hopefully tomorrow.

It is much less exciting than it sounds. Also, I fell in a creek.
So I finally got up the energy to dig around in my 3k+ images from the trip.

Got sick too as I was going home. Now dragging around and using up tissue like it's going out of style. Bleh.

Anyways, back to happy things (no edits besides cropping to upload - can't be arsed right now):

I didn't bring my longer lens, but it was just a fluke (I will see myself out)

Three Humpback whales (ZigZag/Trinity, Nike, and Harpy, if you want to look them up) about as big as the boat we were in.

Read the sign above very carefully before reading the computer screen. Sorry for the reflection, I even had a polarizer on but the sun was behind.

Sorry for the 30 image post - got longer than I intended.

The first 6 pics look like the I99 (heading south). It's uncanny, there was a wildfire there when I was on that road last month and those images are like deja-vu. Was it the I99?

Unfortunately not, it was in British Columbia, Canada. Duffey Lake road, a little west of Lillooet.

That is part of I99 (or highway 99) I drove that same road a few weeks ago. Should have made that clear I was in BC on vacation.

Guilty as charged. I was in the back garden having a beer with wife by the firepit. Usually bring my camera out with me. Wife saw all the splashing so figured I'd have a snap. I should've stood on the chair for better elevation. So, great lens still doesn't compensate for lazy photography.

Idk, I kind of like the off-kilter angle. Makes it visually interesting, rather than yet another near-identical photo of bathing birds. The composition of the background leaves a bit more to be desired, but hey, what can you do?

Went drive then walk this morning to the coast. Found a really old child's shoe on the debris along the shore. Area is near Blackness castle which sits on the Firth of Forth west of Edinburgh. Lots of wrecks lie on the 'river' bed here. I wonder if this came from there?

Went drive then walk this morning to the coast. Found a really old child's shoe on the debris along the shore. Area is near Blackness castle which sits on the Firth of Forth west of Edinburgh. Lots of wrecks lie on the 'river' bed here. I wonder if this came from there?

Wow, there are probably museums interested in that.

Surprisingly good photo from a shitty $180 cameraphone.

This little shit. hit a 15g chatterbait on a medium setup rigged for pike. I tried to get a better shot but it wouldnt open its mouth for me to stick my thumb in for a cleaner photo.

I didnt think much of it at the time but its actually a really good perch for the venue. Im not sure if they get any bigger.

No image this time, but have any Canon RF mount owners noticed the price cut on some RF glass on the US market? The 100mm ƒ2.8 Macro is going for 1k USD (400 USD off,) the 70-200mm ƒ4 is 1.5k USD, among several others. Hell, even the 100-400 is going for $500 USD now which is a great price for what it is.

I've minimised my gear now. I can't buy anything else. Don't need to tbh.

If I had a RF 100-500mm, I'd probably be all set too. :laugh:
(Unfortunately they didn't cut the price on that one. :()

Speaking of super-telephoto, my good friend, the Red Tailed Hawk, decided to hang out around the same place I saw the last (same?) one. This is a pretty tight crop to the point of pixel peeping, but I was able to get pretty close this time around. I was probably about 10 meters away at my closest. This is probably about the best I'm going to get out of the sensor on the RP.

This crop wasn't scaled down, so it should be fairly close to how the original looks when you zoom in.

This was the original, scaled down to a width of 2048px from the original raw. I was lazy and let Apple do it and I feel that it smooths out the image more than if I use something like GIMP.
