Dear Reader (2022-10-30),
First to a clarification on how I number my posts. I am currently making sporadic contributions to 3 series. There are “Walking Reports”, which as the name suggests, concern those events where I drive to a trailhead, walk and then return. There is the “White Over Red” series, which concern my walk along the GR 5. And lastly, there is the great catch all “Wandering Reports”, where I ramble (ie wander) locally and afar. Today’s report is in this last collection.
In true camera gear shopping fashion, I hummed, I hawed, I waited until a blade of grass bent towards the west, and eventually I bought a new “Canon rf 100-400 mm” lens. I went for the cheaper of the 2 possibilities, as the more expensive version was just that. That one is also heavier, and isn’t even a full stop faster. So today you get a set of images using the new lens from a walk under contrast-less skies with Keith, and a drive out to Saskatchewan Crossing the weekend it closed for the season. I am pleased with the lens, and I have made a mental note that even with image stabilization, I need to watch my shutter speed. Some of these images are experiments, and some are decent. Of the decent ones, some could do with some post-processing refinement. Those refinements may have to wait as I have a new project in “the lab” for the month of November.
