While in Wabasha for the weekend we spent the morning at the National Eagle Center.
Mazie and I also attended one of their workshops and learned a lot about the Bald Eagles and got to see one of them have lunch.
Definitely a fun place to stop in Wabasha on your next trip!
I had a great time in Iceland recently with friends Steve, Dennys and Layne. Dennys made this very cool video from our trip. He brought his whole video rig along and did some great work. I really like how he cut in the driving segments and gave this a real “road trip” feel (we did drive 1,200 miles after all!). This will be a wonderful way to remember the trip. A recap blog post on the trip is in the works for this weekend.
We tried waiting out the rain yesterday to shoot the Vatnajökull glacier.
The rain won.
Time to backup all of the Iceland trip photos to two separate 500G portable drives. Not going to lose any of these photos!
Got a kicking Ford Transit to explore Iceland Euro-style.
I finished packing my kit to head to Iceland for a week of photography tonight. Here is what I decided to put in my camera backpack:
- Canon 5D Mark II
- Canon 24-70 f2.8/L
- Canon 70-200 f2.8/L
- Canon 16-35 f2.8/L
- Canon 15mm Fisheye
- Canon 2X Extender
- Canon Timer Remote Control
- Compact Flash Cards (Two 32G, One 16G and One 8G)
- Rode video mic
- Zoom H2 Field Recorder
- Green Laser for night photo effects
- FireWire CF Reader
- Lens Baby
- Storm Jacket for Camera
- Neutral Density filters
- Gradient Neutral Density filters (2, 4 and 8 stops)
- Canon Battery Charger and 4 batteries
- Two 500G WD Passport drives for backing up during trip
This is our plan for the day.
Gorgeous view from Mt. Tamalpais.
What a great tiny get away from San Francisco.
I grabbed this 8-frame panorama with Pano on my iPhone. The full size image shows all the detail.
I didn’t think this type of thing ever happened any more. On a ridiculously full flight and have two open seats next to me?
