I've recently acquired a Canon 5D Mk1 (used, of course) and am trying to get the hang of it. It's a little tricky using it compared to the 7D, which has been my primary for the last couple of years or so. A lot of the controls feel like they're in the wrong place and its ergonomics just feels off.

Anyway, I took it out to shoot some landscapes earlier this week for the Project52 'Sunsets' theme. This one was taken in the deep SE of Calgary, not too far from the city limits.

We continue with our catch-up photos for Project52 from my time away. This one is for week 19's 'Sky and Clouds' theme. This was taken as we were arriving at Vancouver Island on the ferry while sunset approached. The surprise challenge in getting this shot was probably staying steady and upright while the ferry moved about.

I've noticed that it's been a while since I've posted a sunrise or a sunset, so I couldn't just let that pass. Actually, it's been a while since I've gone out to shoot a sunrise or sunset, so I will need to spend some time out to make up for it this year.

This sunrise was taken about a year ago, but unfortunately, I don't remember where I was at the time. I love the wide range of colours in the shot as well as the randomness of the clouds.

As I continue to review and clean up my archives, I've been trying to conceptually group some photos together into some kind of common topic. For today's photos, I've grouped a number of cloudscapes I took at various times a couple of years ago. We really do get some great cloud shots here in Calgary.

Winter has finally made its presence known around here with our first big snowfall earlier this week. I haven't had much chance to go out and shoot, so here's a shot of some bare trees I took last winter at a snow covered soccer/baseball field. I like the silhouetting of the trees against the late evening sky.
