Its that time of year when I make my annual pilgrimage to Estes Park, Colorado for a little time off. After a long drive across Kansas in the rain and a day of light hiking where we saw a brown bear and her cubs, today we hit it early for sunrise in the mountains. I’m trying some new camera settings and a couple of new lens combos, and things are shaping up nicely. I’m just hoping the weather holds for the next couple of days.
I’m on a mini vacation in the Rocky Mountains snapping photos and video with the Olympus OMD for the next few days. That means fewer posts thanks to limited connectivity to the interwebs. One thing that I will be posting about when I get back is shooting with the Olympus Zuiko 50 to 200 mm f2.8 lens that I rented from Borrow Lenses. I’m using it on the OMD so it is the equivalent of a 100 to 400mm lens. So far so good but it’s to early to really tell.
Sometimes you get a little bit of unexpected magic. Today I went on a 6 mile round trip hike to Fern Falls in the Rocky Mountain National park. Most of the day mother nature spit on us with light rain and sleet. By the time we got to the falls it had stopped, but then the sky opened up with a dense snowfall that last for about 30 minutes. Images and video can’t capture just how beautiful it was, but I tried. As we started walking back down the mountain the snow lifted, the sun came out, and the weather in Colorado changed yet again.
