Brrrrrr the White Demon has officially arrived and settled in for the season! It was way too cold yesterday for my liking!!!

I just recently picked up a used 7D and 17-55/2.8 lens and this is my first official shoot with it. So far going well. I am happy that my RRS L bracket from my 40D fits perfectly on the 7D and that my shutter release works as well. Just need to get an extra battery and I am good.

Here are a couple of winter prairie photos during a really nice sunset!

The second is a multi image pano shot in portrait.

Hope you enjoy!




  Canon EOS 7D    EF-S17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM lens    24mm    f/5.0    1/250s    100 ISO    0.0 EV

Scott,

Both are great, but #2 is just phenomenal! Love the colors and the reflected light on the snow.
Can't wait to see you put your new gear into action.

Damn you are getting some nice skies over there lately! I've tried shooting sunset every night for 2 weeks and haven't had anything close to this yet. Lucky bugger

#2 for me also. I think if the foreground object in #1 was more prominent and easier to identify it would also work really well with the oof background.

Thank you Justin. I was out today for a quick sunset drive before supper and there was another very nice sunset but couldn't find any suitable place to photograph it. I hate it when that happens!!

Thank you Morris. I wanted to see how the lens performed with a shallower DOF.

Hey Scott,

You got some really sweet color in the sky here. I like #2 the best here. I can appreciate the creativity in #1, but the out of focus background just isn't working for me.

Hmmm,
Interesting set, Scott.
#1- I keep trying to clean my glasses. And bob around like an owl to sharpen focus.
And squint. And...
Surprisingly (?) I prefer the second image.

Scott, I love No. 2, for the same reasons as everyone else - plus, I think the stalk in the foreground conveys a sense of solitude on the frigid prairie, adding to the emotional impact.
