When gannets move in next door, property becomes hard to sell....

Awesome shots Guy. I especially like the second and last one. Good control of the light, nicely done.

Thanks Click. Just for info 5D3 and 300mm 2.8 IS centre-weighted metering plus a third of a stop.
Really nice images Guy!

Here are a few from last year’s trip to Yellowstone and the Tetons:




Majestic landscape. Very nice shot.

Thank you for the kind words.  This was a very memorable event.  When I arrived the momma moose and her two calves were grazing in the river within twenty feet of several people who were already at the scene.The only downside to the day was that the mountains were almost completely obstructed by smoke from a nearby forest fire.  I have always been nervous around moose as they can get very aggressive. This momma did not care the slightest about the people nearby and she moved in so close you could hear the bubbles from her nose when she placed her head in the water.   It is these moments that keep me coming back to the Tetons and Yellowstone. The whole string of these photos can be found at:

Kindest Regards, Lloyd

Love this picture and the whole set.  One of my "photography life goals" is to take a quality picture of a moose.  I'm so fond of them I even have a moose decal on my rear windshield 8).
Great series of images for sure!  My big fear that I have to reckon with is that if I get out there anytime soon, I may never come back and my family will have to either move to this amazing wilderness or figure out how to get by without me!!   ;D

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS 7D Mark II in 2014 [CR2]

I like the specs.  I just pre ordered my EOS 7D Mk II.  Can't wait to get it out in the field with my 5D Mk III and get back to enjoying the good life, 5d in one hand, 7d in the other...  Should be a great combination and the Fastest canon in the west...    ;)

I like the September/October announcement and Spring 2014 release date...  8)

EOS Bodies / Re: POLL: What will be the 70d's price tag?
« on: July 01, 2013, 03:27:44 AM »
Judging by the leaked specs, the 70D is virtually a 7D MKii.

So the 70D will probably be priced just below the 6D.

Really??  If that's spec'd like a 7D MkII, there are going to be a lot of disappointed 7D users... None of them would upgrade for those specs... Okay, hardly any...  ;)

New sensor sounds promising. Hope it's cleaner.

My 5D3 is lonely. :)
Ha, ha!  Mine is lonely now too!

Mine was too...until 2nd 5 III came :)
+10  Now that's a nice combo!  :D

Wow, like night and day!

Wow lots of 7D bashing going on. I disagree, the crop body has a place in my bag for weddings. I pretty much shot an entire wedding with the 7D & 17-55 and 5D2 & 135L. Of course theh 5D combo rocked it but you know what the 7D was no slouch! (And when the bride wants a shot of 11 people jumping in the air - 8fps makes it a cake walk) AF is crucial at a wedding and your subject is rarely in the center. And if it is then your shots will look crappy and average.

Quote
Now, my point is not to go out and buy a 7D but that AF is importan
t and if you are choosing a camera for weddings, the the 5D3 is the clear choice. You have the speed, the IQ and the higher res file for cropping. There will be cropping!

Oh and when you go from indoors to outdoors in 1second. Good luck changing your WB on the 6D.
Agreed, the 7d is still a relevant body and it has been the APS-C flagship for Canon since it's inception.  It's still relevant and I think will remain so, until the 7D MkII is announced and makes it way into camera bags across the globe...

I think a lot of current 7d owners want the new one, just because the original is such a great camera!  They may be thinking that if this one is this good, how much greater is the next one going to be, especially after the number of years it's been holding it's own. 

I used my 7D in weddings and it got the job done but I can't honestly say it "rocked".  But it got me through... often times with a lot of work in post with regard to the noise in the shadows and darker areas.  It's high iso usage is limited at best, especially compared to the 5d MkIII.
