50mm Friday Dogs don’t need riders.

Posted November 19th, 2011 by Chris Wilkinson with Comments Off on 50mm Friday Dogs don’t need riders.

Today’s 50mm Friday was captured using the Canon 30D and 50mm 1.8 at F4, 1/125 of a second, ISO1600.  The crop is significant, cropped from landscape to portrait to improve composition, then slightly cropped to make the subject larger.

I have included the landscape version, cropped to straighten only.  Which do you prefer?

Nothern Lights over Nova Scotia

When the planets align, and a severe space weather storm combines with clear skies, it turns into a photographers dream.

This image was made along side highway 104 while on the way back to Prince Edward Island from a short weekend vacation near Peggy’s Cove, Nova Scotia. 

With little traffic on the road, and next to no light pollution, this is the one of the most active displays of the Aurora Borealis I have witnessed in person.

The road is long

Great Hobbies is opening a fourth location on October 29th in Mississauga, Ontario, so I’ve been on the road implementing most of their IT.  The trip started with a 21 hour, 41 minute drive from Prince Edward Island to Brampton.  Coincidentally, my family and I moved to Prince Edward Island in 1990 from Brampton.  The rental house is less than 10 kilometers from the old house.  I hope to get there before going to the airport today.

Having spent almost 24 hours in a van, this 50mm Friday is inspired by the road.

Introducing 50mm Friday

Posted October 7th, 2011 by Chris Wilkinson with Comments Off on Introducing 50mm Friday

It’s 50mm Friday!  The *FIRST* 50mm Friday.

The idea behind 50mm Friday is to select a photograph from my library taken with the least expensive lens a person can buy.  It may also be the most challenging and rewarding lens to use.  First, there’s no zoom, so you have to “be the zoom”.  It’s rewarding because you have to work a little harder to make th photograph.

This is a photograph of a dew-covered spider web, 50mm, F2.8, 1/160s ISO400.
