Readers of our blog know that its all about photos. No sense of blogging (web logging) on our own activities (as opposed to commentary on what others do, such as politicians) without actually showing you what we did through photographs. With the recent demise of my Nikon Coolpix 5700, I decided that it was time to upgrade.
I bought a Nikon D80 with a couple of lenses. You can look up the specs for yourself if you are interested, so let’s get to the photos. I am still learning the camera but after a few days I am already very impressed with it. I suggest that you visit my Flickr account and take a look at the full sized shots.
I picked a great time to buy a new camera, because we visited Taroko Gorge this weekend. I’ll blog on this later but for now, check out these shots, many of them taken with difficult contrast situations. The D80 handled them well.
Using shutter priority, I slowed down the shutter speed to soften the water flow. I let the D80 handle the aperture.
