Winter Again.

It’s that time of the year again for snow, Mt Wellington has had a few good dumps over the past few weeks, so I thought I’d head up and take a few shots at sunset. Some bettter light would have been better, but still ok.

This was my first official outing with my new 17-40mm f4 L, and it works great :). Nice and sharp.

Waiting for the 5D mark 2

Mt Wellington Rocks in Snow

It’s a good thing I don’t have a camera at the moment, because the weather has been shocking in Hobart over recent weeks. Weeks of overcast skies and rain. Is summer really here?

My 5d Mark 2 is on order and I can’t wait for it to arrive, finally some full frame goodness 🙂 I can’t wait to see the results using the 16-35L to it’s full potential, 24mm on a 1.6x body is just not the same.

The above picture was taken on my old 40D with the 16-35mm L.

I’m expecting big things Mr Canon….

Planet Snow

I decided to head out again this afternoon and take some more snow picture, after the last filter disaster.

Winter this year has been really good in Tasmania. There was so much more snow than normal, in some places they had cut through 2 meters of snow to uncover the road.

The new hi-tech filters I purchased are working great. This shot was taken with my 16-35L. I really wish I had a full frame body…. soon maybe… 

I’ve added this picture to the store, in A3 and A2 format.

Wellington in Winter

I was suprised to find that there was quite a bit of snow still on the mountain, Mt Wellington is the schenic backdrop to Hobart in Tasmania. Mt Wellington recently had a good dumping of snow, and I thought it was about time to head up from some sunset shots.

The weather had only just cleared over the summit, and it was 50:50 if any good shots were to be had. This is one of the better usable shots I took.

I tooks some other good ones as well, but I have since found out after blowing them up that the Sigma 10-20mm lens and Cokin P series ND grads don’t mix 🙁 

I’ve added this shot to my shop should anyone like a print.
