I wanted to take a better photo with my new Sigma lens than my workplace from a distance.
So this morning I set out for another High Park visit. This time it was well before sunrise. Alas, things did not go as well as I had envisioned. But I still managed a few keepers for my Toronto, Ontario Flickr album.
The attachment foot to mount the camera or lens on my tripod is too small. It fits the ballhead that I use for the Platypod, but not the ballhead on the tripod. So I had to handhold all photos while still lugging my tripod around with me.
I knew that I wanted to silhouette the tree branches with the sun, but I changed plans slightly when I saw the CN Tower off in the distance.
The idea of blending nature’s towers with humankind’s towers appealed to me.
Once the dawn had completely broken, I began my trek back toward the subway station. I could hear woodpeckers in the trees, so I figured this would be the best opportunity for the new lens.
The tripod would have been welcome here, so I definitely need to get the correct attachment feet in my camera so that I can move between the Platypod and the tripod with minimal fuss. A fluid head for the tripod might be a future purchase too.
Scroll toward the bottom of the Flickr album to see a few other bird photos taken with the new lens.Tags: Digital Art, Photoshop
