Enjoying the sunrise

Published January 22nd, 2012

This was my 2nd time catching the sunrise on the hill just above Riley park and just below SAIT. Used my Nikon D90 with 105mm macro for these shots, such a versatile fun lens to use. Little bit chilly but well worth it.

Its big its clunky, it makes me carry 20 pounds of equipment. My DSLR just fell out of my backpack into the snow with 2 of my lenses. I was not even a block away from home, anxious to see my shots from the mornings adventure.

Zipper wore out on the bag....disaster averted though because DSLRs ARE durable!! So while trends push people towards smaller and smaller interchangeable lens cameras I would have to say if I had a small ILC with lenses with me today they would have not survived.

To top it all off I did have a Panasonic GF3 in my pocket that I borrowed from work to compare and test. The fact that it was small enough to fit in my pocket and that I did not have to keep it in my backpack probably saved that camera too.
