Spring Drive

Today I took my first photo-drive of the season. Clockwise around our portion of the Columbia Valley: South to Fairmont, north on Westside Road, south from Invermere to Windermere.

The trip started out really well, with a little flashback on the radio: Tears For Fears' Everybody Wants To Rule The World - haven't heard it in years. The DJ promptly ruined the moment by following it up with some whiney Sarah McLachlan cut but, hey, it was great while it lasted!

Yes, its spring. Technically. It was below freezing, though, so while the tunes were cranked, I couldn't open the windows - or even crack the sunroof!

Here are my favourite photos from the day, in no particular order:

Oh, by the way, a new camera body is on its way to me. Well, its new to me, not new to the world. A Canon 1D Mark IV. It will be arriving on April 8th or 9th. I'm trying not to think about it too much, because I get too wound up and excited!

Can't wait to have two good bodies so that I don't have to constantly switch lenses - I missed a GREAT shot of two coyotes today, because I needed to switch lenses - next time, it won't happen!

Special thanks to my friend, Gavin, for not only introducing me to the seller, but also arranging a clean-and-check-up at Canon USA! Please support Gavin by taking a brilliant photo-safari with him, in Southern Africa:

  1. Wow - That will be a great camera in your hands.

    1. Thanks, Lizzie! I'm just hoping I'm not over-facing myself - the learning curve when I got the 7D was steep - I'm sure this will be the same!
