Welcome to the beautiful Colrado!
First of all I have to say sorry that my last blog entry was quite a while ago. A lot happened in my life and I just had not the time to sit down and write.
We have finally arrived in Colorado and after weeks of packing, cleaning, moving, unpacking, cleaning, and so on and so forth, I and my family have finally settled in Colorado Springs.
I have done several wood projects already (my desk didn’t survive the move… R.I.P.) and so I decided to build my own desk. I always wanted a huge desk to have lots of space on it. Long story short: After many days of heading to Lowe’s (repeatedly), screaming, yelling, sawing, screwing and screwing things up (also repeatedly…) the desk is finally finished and I really like it. So I finally have a place again to put my computer equipment that is not the floor.
The Second big news is that I finally own the Canon 5D Mk III! This is my first full frame camera and I love it! Finally I can shoot wildlife in the morning or after sunset without sacrificing image quality due to grain. The little grain this camera produces on high ISO settings is easily removed in Lightroom, so yeah!!
As you might have noticed already I implemented a new gallery called “Landscapes – Colorado” on my website. I have uploaded a few pictures already (all made with the 5D) and will continue to fill it up with the best locations Colorado has to offer!
I and my family went on some awesome hikes already (still have to get used to the altitude though…) and we will continue to do so. I have already planned a couple hikes to some location I need to check out soon. Unfortunately I cannot reach some of them now due to road maintenance and closures, but I will get there eventually. Pikes Peak is waiting as well. I know, I know. I have been here now for almost a month and still was not on Pikes Peak. Shame on me. But! I ran the Manitou Incline already. Ok…it was not running… it was more falling up the steps. But I made it J
The next few weeks will be really busy too, so I don’t know yet which photographic topic I want to tackle next. If you have any ideas or if you want me to talk about something specific please write it in the comments.
Thank you and I hope you have a photo-tastic week!
