One of the most amazing things that I see in nature is how that some good sized trees have managed to grow out of a bare rock face. I think about how hard I work to try to get some young trees and plants to grow. Proper water and fertilizer, careful work to prepare the soil, pruning and even talking to them...and then here is a tree like this, just growing out of the rock. Amazing! I released a video that compares two very wide angle lenses -the Laowa 12mm f/2.8 (used here) and the Sigma 12-24mm f/4 ART. You can see the video here: http://bit.ly/2gisWiO
I love to cross country ski (though this winter has not been a great one for the sport so far). It's envigorating and such a great way to enjoy winter. Still, I have to confess that after a long ski it is pretty reassuring to see the chalet in the distance and know you are almost home. Exercise is often the best when you've already finished it and just feel good for having done it! I've just launched a review of this lens: Text Review: http://bit.ly/EFM18_150STM | Video Review: http://bit.ly/18_150STM| Image Gallery: http://bit.ly/2gYDCDx
I was saving this image and pretty much forgot to share it! I set this up in Myrtle Beach earlier in the year as a visual illustration of the old year washing away and being replaced by the new one. Pardon if I'm a few weeks late!
