A year of self #41 – Walkabout

I’m taking a Canon 24-105mm f/4 for a test drive right now. Current owner is offering it at an extremely attractive price. He brought it to me this morning and at lunch I took it on a walkabout. So far I’m quite impressed. It is fast and the glass is very, very good.

Lightning over Nevada

The last two evenings have seen thunderstorms roll through northern Nevada.  On Tuesday it was too rainy and windy to try to capture anything as I wasn’t about to take my camera and self out into that mess, but yesterday evening saw the worst of the storms a bit to the south of us and after many, many, MANY tries, I finally captured this.

At the River Farm School

I assisted a photographer friend of mine today as she shot portraits of her niece.  One of the locations she chose to shoot was at the River Farm School right on the Truckee River. It is a popular spot for weddings, and the place is full of flowers.  I was especially drawn to the sunny daisies.
