Another rainy day. I drove up into Big Cottonwood canyon to see if I cound find anything to shoot with my 200mm hanging out the van window so I wouln't have to go out in the rain.
Camera: Pentax K1
I parked the van in a pull out of the canyon and shot downhill.
ISO 100 200mm f/4.5? 1/20th Hand held resting on the drivers window.
I love leading lines and this winding road gave me some. I tried a 1 second shutter speed to capture tail lights going down the mountain but resting the camera on my half open window was not enough to steady the camera.
The gloom of the rain was beautiful: ISO 800 200mm f/4.5? 1/200th Restin on the open drivers window.
ISO 800 200mm f/2.5? 1/200th Resting on drivers window.
I would love to get inside this old but still in use power substation. It sits right next to the road as it winds up the canyon.
As I get used to this lens I am learning to slow down and I'm getting a higher ratio of keepers. I'm getting better at manual focus. It is a fun lens when you have time to be patient.
