Lock Bridge

Hartbeespoort Bridge of Locks

Photo 11 the 2016 Collection

I have been shooting a lot with the Canon EOS 70D paired with either the Canon EF-S 10-18mm f/4 IS STM or the Canon EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM.
I must admit that the Canon EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM has taken residence on my Canon EOS 70D, it’s dimunitive compact size is ideal for the kind of shooting I do.
This is the lock bridge at The French Toast Coffee Cafe in Hartbeespoort, more about the cafe here.

Wide-angle photography is not easy, sure when it is a landscape or cityscape, point, frame, shoot and voila!
But there is so much more to it than that, the finer details, the wide scope of life and more, much more.
My wife, Geraldine, is so good at finding these, I often think she is a natural. She will deny it but she does have an eye for it.

Voortrekker Monument at Sunset

Voortrekker Monument at Sunset

Photo 9 the 2016 Collection

With the coming Pretoria wide-angle photowalkI thought it would be wise to scout the area and make sure everything was accessible, that there is enough subject matter to shoot and that we can get the sunset!

It would have been nice to have clouds as clouds make for better sunsets but this image of the monument speaks for itself, I think we are going to have loads of fun.
I am also practicing my Photoshop skills with a tablet, it is so much easier that a mouse.
Layering 6 images manually is not the easiest thing in the world though.
