Good Canon Thursday to all of you! As always you are invited to share up to 3 of your favorite photos taken with your Canon gear. Please make sure that each of your photos is no more than 1000 pixels along its longest edge. Last week there was some interesting information offered along with some of the pictures posted to our forum. I encourage you to continue to tell us a little about your photos as you post them. I found the comments you posted along with your photos in that they provided your personal connection to the photos and made them even more interesting. I encourage those of you that did not post comments to do so; although you need not feel obligated to do so. Suggestions include the photo location; interesting challenges you faced to get the shot; any post processing issues or techniques that you would like to share. The floor is yours. Here are my shots for the week: My first shot was taken on Seattle’s Queen Anne Hill looking south over Puget Sound’s Elliot Bay. Seattle’s Harbor Island shipyards and portions of the Seattle waterfront can be seen in the background and left side. My wife and I were able to get a little time to ourselves while on business when we spotted this open air “living room” on this scenic overlook. Unfortunately, the TV and lamp were not working, but the recliner worked just fine. This shot was taken with a Canon 40D, EF 28-135mm f3.5-5.6 IS USM lens at 1/125th second, 28mm, f8, and ISO 200. My second shot, at the shore looking east over the Atlantic Ocean, was a lot closer to home on Sandy Hook, New Jersey’s Gateway National Park. This shot was taken with a Canon 40D, EF-S 10-22mm f3.5-4.5 USM lens at 1/800th second, 10mm, f13, and ISO 1000. My final image was taken at New Jersey’s Edwin B Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge near Oceanville, New Jersey. This Great Egret appears to be trying to blend into the background so I can’t see him. Guess what – this beautiful bird is hiding in plain sight. This shot was taken with a Canon 40D, EF 70-200mm f4.0L IS USM lens at 1/2000th second, 200mm, f5, ISO 800.
