Here is another find from my photo backup reorganization yesterday. This photo was taken back in the summer of 2008 way before I had full interest/passion in photography. All I had was a Pentax point and shoot camera. It didnt do too bad of a job taking pictures, nothing a little Photoshop cant fix.
Speaking of cameras, what do you think of the new Nikon D800. The 36.3 MP FX sensor would be nice to have for landscape photography but thats a ton of storage space needed! Also wouldnt it be tough to get the super high resolution with lower end lenses. So it would be WAY more expensive to get the high quality lenses to reach the high quality resolution from the sensor (correct me if Im wrong). Im also a little concerned about the ISO levels but Im sure that will be fine if it handles like the D7000 does. I might be too concerned about this because my D90 really sucks at high ISOs. My next camera must handle higher ISOs. I might just get an used D700 if I can find the right deal at a cheaper price.
As you might of guessed, this photo looks over Sydney Harbor in Australia. One of my best friends, Kraemer, and I went on a walk to look for saddles for myself (mine broke). During this walk we somehow found ourselves at the base of one of the four giant pylons for the Sydney Harbor Bridge. It just happened the base of this pylon had an open door and a set of stairs calling for us to walk up. Ten dollars later we were at the top with this amazing view! We spent a lot of time up there watching the boats going by and the people climbing the bridge (left of the frame). I would have loved to do this but $400 wasnt in the budget to make the climb at sunset. The $10 was well worth it to get you close enough to the top. Plus you could take your time and werent constrained by safety cables. If you are ever in Sydney on a tight budget, this is the way to go to get a view from the top of the Sydney Harbor Bridge.
