Reviewing old photos is always fun. They can bring you back in time, but they also can take your breath away. As much as I don’t like the cold and snow, I really do enjoy this photo. The funny part is it is a stitch of about 14 photos that I took back with my Canon 20D. When I took this, there was intentions of stitching these photos to make a great panorama, however the software wasn’t where it needed to be at that time. Fast forward many years later, Photoshop CC has the ability to make panoramas with ease and does a great job at it too! Hope you enjoy my view of Banff, after a cold hike. 🙂 The view is truly breathtaking, and you should be experienced IRL!
The Dallas Arboretum has some fantastic night time displays of the Chihuly glass sculptures which look very cool at night. These are on display during the daytime, but daytime does not give it justice. You have to pay extra for the night time tickets, but if you have a yearly membership the Chihuly Nights tickets are discounted significantly. The above picture has several pieces in water which causes the glass to have a really neat mirror image on the water. The above was taken handheld at an amazing ISO 25600 and the 5DMk3 took it without a hitch. Amazing camera. Also, I was able to use my recently acquired 17-40L for a great ultra wide view. Hope you enjoyed this picture, and hope you get to make it out to the Dallas Chihuly Nights– They are in town from May 2012 until October 2012. Be sure to bring mosquito repellent!
