I tested my new Canon EOS 5D MKIII on Tree Sparrows that recently visit me every day. Here are few shots from early morning session in my backyard.
On our last day we had 3 distinct stops. The first one was a lovely little city Mittenwald with wonderfully painted buildings. Sort of essence and a postcard of Bavaria. It’s also famous for the manufacture of violins, violas and cellos.
Next we went to Leutascher Gorge which is right next to Mittenwald but already in Austria. Very picturesque walk, slightly above 1,5km long. Maight not be suitable for people with fear of heights.
I enjoyed the walk very much but processing those photos was a nightmare. Whatever I did I wasn’t happy with the result (and I am still unhappy). I would have posted this a long time ago if it wasn’t for those gorge photos. Well, maybe one day I’ll re-do them. :) All the distortions are due to fisheye lenses.
Our last stop was in Ga-Pa (Garmisch-Partenkirchen) and a second portion of amazing paintings on the buildings. Enjoy. :)
So around two weeks I finally bought Canon 100-400 mm lenses. I've been thinking about it for years, now I am a very happy owner. I already did some trial runs in the field and I am so pleased with results! Lenses are sharp and the image they produced is great. Check out some of the photos. Also 2x extender is on the way, yay!
So, last weekend I took advantage of not-so-bad weather and went to the mountains. It was around 0*C, foggy, humid and hiking up was a bit tricky due to slippery path. On the top of Szczeliniec Wielki the visibility was really low, just up to 15-20 meters but snow with wind made for some interesting sculptures. :)
