Fall Ferns

I’m still processing images from last fall; here’s one from a fern grotto on Kebler Pass, near Crested Butte Colorado.

Kebler Pass Ferns

One from Acadia


I’ve been in Maine for a week, heading home today… here’s one selection from among 1500 photographs made in the last 5 days. This was on one of the nature trails around Jordan Pond in Acadia NP.

Canon 30D, Tamron 18-200 XR Di II. In the interest of extreme minimalism in gear, I’ve been using this single lens for the past month; so far I like it… it’s nice to travel light, and the images from this lens are very good – though I miss the IS from Canon 28-135. Tamron has announced a new 28-300 lens with VC (Vibration Compensation) but have delayed shipping of the Canon-mount version due to reported technical problems. We’ll see where that goes…
