I recently got back from a wonderful trip to Colorado. My target was to increase my landscapes portfolio. I visited key locations allowing to create challenging images during the day and night. Some of these locations are well known and easy to find. However, make no mistake, if the conditions are not right, you will end up with so-so images.

I will be sharing more images within the next couple of months.

The 5D MKII dynamic range continues to impress me. If the conditions are right, this camera can help you capture amazing detailed images of birds. While I wish it was faster (more frames per second) this camera rocks!

Yet again the Canon 7D Auto-focus system impressed me while photographing a pair of Bald Eagles building their future home here in S.W Florida.

Because of my AF settings, I was able to create the series you see above. Notice how not even a large tree in the foreground was able to remove my focusing points away from my main subject allowing me to keep my subject sharp during the series and not been distracted by any foreground objects.

Learn how to set your AF system and experiment!
