View Full Version : Something Different From Me - Fogo Island

07-06-2010, 12:16 AM
As most of you know, I prefer to capture images of Newfoundland's rugged coastline, old wharves and fishing stages, etc. So I have very little experience with things like birds and flowers... so that is what I am shooting at the moment. It's a bit frustrating though, as the darned birds just won't cooperate at all, and the flowers won't stay still for the camera either!

But here is what I came up with today. I was using my Sony Alpha with old Minolta 75-300mm f/4.5-5.6 lens, handheld, on full zoom. Don't let anyone tell you this lens is not clear and sharp, especially when stopped down to f/8 - f/11 at full zoom.

Both excellent shots! Love the lighting on the flower. Nominated the gull.

Wow! If you hadn't nominated that first one I would have. :clap::clap: That's the second one you've beaten me to in the last few days :)
