I just ordered my very first "big boy girl" tripod. OMG!
It's a bit heavier, a bit bulkier, a bit shorter than my $ 66 Benro, but I believe it may be a lot sturdier, as it supports 4 times as much weight. 

It may still not be heavy enough to effectively hit a bear of the head with it in a moment of need, but it will have to do. :)

Seems as firm and stable tripod to have.

The new backpack from Caselogic came. And it's definitively a keeper. 
More about it later. It may be a good idea to do a video review this time around. Yikes.

There is something about landscape photography I absolutely adore. I can't quite put my finger on it. Grabbing my backpack with the camera and the tripod and heading out has become my favourite thing - and that's saying something. Yeah, I'm always a bit worried to stumble across some sort of danger, be it getting lost in the woods, encountering a hungry bear or worse - a crazy human. But in the end, my outings are always enjoyable, and sometimes I even come home with a nice picture.
Sometimes.

We don't live in a temperate rainforest for nothing.

+Karin Nelson my heart is the temperate rainforest. Processing a lot of oxygen, bountifully abundant, and not given to extremes of temperature or drought ;)

Wandered out today to the point where the Eagle river flows into Shuswap lake. The water is really low right now, and it was easy walking on sand banks - until I found myself in the middle if a patch of drift wood. Now I'm not exactly a doe-footed lightweight, and while I was climbing over the dry logs and branches, every once in a while you could hear a dreadful cracking noise coming from the grass covered wood underneath. Luckily, I didn't break any bones, just a couple of branches. But it was quite scary. I think I was at least two feet above solid ground at all times.

And punctually on Earth Day, our honourable government has ruled that the humpback whales off the coast of British Columbia are no longer an endangered species and tankers for the proposed pipeline will now be allowed to travel through whale habitat, 4 weeks before that same government will decide if that pipeline and those tankers should be allowed.

Earth day is a joke anyway.

Today, my Case Logic Reflexion DSLR backpack arrived. Here are my first few thoughts on this new backpack:

1. The insert from my messenger bag fits inside it. I can just swap the padded insert from bag to backpack and back to the bag, depending on my requirements for the day. Fabulous!

2. The backpack zips open in the middle, revealing the insert and offering a little flat surface to place down things like filters, etc. It even has a grab handle which allows me to move the bag opened up like that. Sometimes you are at a location but you need to move a few meters. It's a pain to always have to zip the backpack close again just to move it 20 meters. Even though, too many times I needed moved my other backpack (which has a back-panel opening), and I forgot to completely zip it shut before moving it. NOT GOOD.

3. The bottom is rubberized. Slip proof. And with slip proof, I mean it won't slip or slide. To move it across a table, you have to lift it. It won't slide. At all. This means, the bottom is also waterproof. 

4. The water bottle pocket actually fits a water bottle. Amazing.

The coolest bit news of the day is this:
First unveiled in iOS 6, Apple Maps has been known to distort reality before, but can it conjure a mythical prehistoric beast from the waters of Loch Ness?

I used to like post processing more, but lately I found the act of taking the picture more enjoyable than the post processing. Maybe I'm finally starting to "normalize".

Happy Easter, everyone!

You've got a good eye for the juxtaposition of contrasting elements in making a picture. I like this one.
