View Full Version : More From New Kit Lens - Fogo Island

06-03-2010, 11:30 AM
I have since recovered from my May 19th trek on the Lion's Den Trail high above the town of Fogo, so I decided yesterday to do a little more exploring. It amazes me just how little of this island I have actually covered (photographed) and how much more I have yet to see; I believe it will take a lifetime to capture all 254 square kms of Fogo Island!

Anyway, here are a few taken yesterday (June 2nd) with my Sony Alpha and new 18-55mm kit lens. I was better prepared this time, and brought along my water bottle! I am ordering a Lowepro Slingshot camera backpack, which should be much more comfortable than carrying my heavy and bulky suitcase-style camera cases everywhere I go.

Again today, my poor upper spine is paying a heavy price for yesterday's punishment, and I am writing this while lying flat on my back in bed, (in a Percocet haze, no less!) but it was worth it! I aim to see and do as much as I possibly can, before I totally lose my mobility and wish I had done more while I could. So I will lay low for a week or so, and hopefully be back on the hunt for more scenic Fogo Island views in the coming weeks.

As usual, all of these are taken handheld, including the panorama of three images stitched together using Microsoft ICE. (Why did I buy this tripod??)
