The 5D photo of Mt. Abe in my back yard.
I’m looking out the window this morning at beautiful Mt. Abe. I captured this shot with the new 5D and the Rebel. Let’s just say the 5D won hands down. I have a 70 to 300mm lense on the 5D and I like that lens - but not for people shots.
This is our first Thanksgiving out of Vermont in at least 5 years. I am missing Sheila’s delicious turkeys and beautiful family. However, we are up in St. Felix de Delquier, Quebec with the cousins. Miraculously, the boys are getting along with their cousins. This is amazing because there has not been a lot of sleep in the last few days. Amazing what new toys can do for happy kids.
It has been a difficult fall all around. Terrible diagnoses for a close friend and a friend’s child. There has been death in the family for both old and tragically the very young. I have a lot to reflect upon this holiday season.
So we are enjoying a house full of kids - and SNOW! One thing about being 8 hours north of Montreal, you are guaranteed for some good winter weather. According to my son - Winter is here!
Much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. Healthy kids, new job, and new (well new to me) 5D Cannon camera.
All my lenses don’t fit with it, but I am happy to have an alternative to the Rebel. It gave me a lot of grief this fall with the 99 error - which is probably a connectivity issue with the lens. I cleaned the connections and it worked for a while, but I did end up sending it back to get repaired. The turn around time was really great - less than 1 week, but the cost was just over $200. They replaced the connectors.
Autumn in Regent’s Park. By the very talented Ben Roberts.
Love these photos - especially the layout of the closeup. The dew drops are great as well as the symmetry with the leaves. The C curves of the leaves make the photo appealing to the eye. I love it!
Happy Veterans Day! Thank you to all the Veterans who have served and are serving. We spent part of the day at the falls along route 17 from Bristol to Waitsfield. Going over the gap, there is a little memorial park.
The water was clear and strong, just pouring down the mountain. A great place to reflect about the heros that are unsung as we have conflicts in many countries. Having two sons makes me ever thankful for their work. I am very lucky to be able to look at the waterfalls in Vermont and see the beauty of this fine state of Vermont.
Luke enjoyed looking at the water and throwing rocks into the water (of course). He was so surprised that the water was so loud moving so quickly down the mountain.
Finally getting rain after the hurricane non-event. Grey day all day…which matches with the mood.
Be safe east coasters. xx
A Vermont photo I took two weeks ago…Mt. Abe in the snow. This photo is looking down main street in New Haven, Vermont. All the leaves are now down, but I was happy to see the first snow of the season.
