A front moved in yesterday and brought cooler air into town. Higher elevations have snow. In town it’s rain and occasionally sleet. It’s also just a little chilly here today! Brrrr!
Since the weather isn’t on my side (for photography) I’ve spent the bulk of the day at the Airstream. Paused a movie to take a call and then decided to blog before getting back into the movie. Just not holding my attention. Not a bad flick, but a little slow moving for me. Bangkok Dangerous.
I suppose I shouldn’t complain about the weather. With the rain in the pollen is down. I’m feeling human again. If only for a short while. Once the pollen cranks up again I’m sure my gut will resume the uproar. But today I have a reprieve!
So, what to do on a rainy day in an Airstream. Movies, cleaning, reorganizing, and playing with the new 5D. I’ve still got a good bit to learn about it. #1, I need to get it to work properly with my 580EX. On the 40D the flash is automatic with the camera, and when I popped it over to the 5D it went to manual.
I’ve got some additional reading to do. The manuals that come with these things aren’t the greatest. I usually rely on the Digital Field Guide series, but the book on the 5D isn’t out yet. So I’m left to experiment. Can’t be that hard, right? 🙂
Beyond the 5D reading I have other books on the list to go through. Trail guides for AZ, a few books on the Page and Utah areas, and some miscellaneous fun reading. There’s a little more for a rainy afternoon!
Well, with that I’m off to more R&R.
Today’s shots were produced with the 5D and my new 17-40mm lens. Pretty much equivalent to the 10-22mm on the 40D. I’m liking it!
