This is a quickie post today because hubby and I are away for the weekend in Windsor, Ontario. Mike works for a company that builds and installs Florida rooms, mostly in trailer parks, and he had to do a couple of quotes in Leamington, Ontario, so I decided to tag along so we could make a weekend out of it. It’s about 4 hours away, and I was dying to take a good long road trip in my new baby. Plus I knew it would provide me with different photo opportunities, so hopefully I will have some new material to share with you next week.
This photo was taken on a vacation we took in Florida at the end of 2005 long before I purchased by Canon Rebel XSi. I have always been a Canon girl, but I just don’t remember which Canon I had at this point. All I know is that I only had the built in zoom, and I’m pretty sure I didn’t own a tripod back then. This shot was therefore handheld and taken from quite far away while sitting on my parents’ sailboat at the marina in Titusville, Florida, and I just zoomed in as far as I could. In post processing, I then cropped it and was quite amazed with the clarity that I achieved. What a beautiful bird!!
