Mt. Diablo

Hiked up to the summit of Mt. Diablo State Park today. At over 3800 ft. elevation it is said that on a clear day one can see past the Golden Gate bridge on one side and all the way to the Sierra Nevadas on the other. Sadly, today was a little hazy so the Sierra Nevadas weren't very visible. However if you looked carefully in the direction of San Francisco, you could make out the Golden Gate bridge. I have a blown up the center where you can barely make out the bridge.

Technical specs: Canon 30D, 10-22@22mm, f/8, 1/640s, ISO 100, mild shadow/highlight and curves in PS.

A man and his craft...

Alas, my first picture. This was taken in St. Lucia last week, where I was attending Mark & Vicky's wedding. I am in the process of going through all the pictures and slowly putting them up when I found this one. If you are wondering my camera is mounted on a Stroboframe flash bracket, the bracket is what you are seeing me hold.

This was taken right after their wedding and before the reception dinner, which is why the camera was still on the flash bracket.

Technical specs: Canon Rebel XT, 10-22@12mm, f/8, 1/200s, ISO 100, no PP (straight from ACR)

Welcome to what will hopefull become my primary PhotoBlog. I have been doing a 'Picture of the Week' for some time, but I've been finding the one picture a week, every week on Sunday thing to be restrictive. There are times when I'd like to post more and others when I don't really have anything; hence I have decided to give this PhotoBlog thing a whirl to see how it goes. Now to find my picture to post...
