Drivin' through the woods

For some reason the section of Saxon Woods where we go most every day was closed off with construction barriers today, but no matter- we just went to the northern section up by the pool. And I took my Everest-10 rock crawler along for the fun of it too, with my little Mobius action camera, sometimes mounted on the truck and sometimes aimed at it :)

It looks a bit funny coz I had to trim off the "hood" of the body so it didn't block the camera... the next thing I want to do for it is to fabricate a roll cage type body that will protect the camera and the electronics while not blocking the view.

Anyhow- here's a little video of some of the fun we had :)

Friday off in the woods

I decided it's been too long since I just went out with my camera to take pictures for my own enjoyment, so today I took my 7Dii to the woods with Holly. Much as I love my 6D, I'd kind of forgotten how good the 7Dii is, especially when paired with the excellent EF-S 10-22mm :)

I need to get back in the habit of doing this more often!

This old tree becomes almost abstract with this B&W HDR treatment
Sunlight through the leaves
I like this one a lot- almost as much as my favorite one of Holly sitting on a log- I need to play with this one some more!
This lens is surprisingly good for macro
I've no idea who these guys are- I just liked them as a focal point in this composition
Doof :)
Caught her mid-blink
More sunny leaves
I like the contrast in this one
And I like the detail in this
Dog and ball
This did not work as well as I'd hoped- I think I blew it by using a shallow depth-of-field and putting the focus on the bench, it should be on the trees beyond the bench
