Seeing as how we have the opportunity to milk our neighbors cows again tomorrow night, I though it appropriate to go back and post one of my favorites from the series I took in their barn the last time we milked.
We’ve actually been getting some snow, which I really enjoy as it’s starting to look like real winter. I really thought it was pretty so I thought I’d share.
I woke up this morning to the most beautiful scene out my front door. We got about three inches of wet snow which stuck to everything. It was absolutely wonderful! I took a few extra minutes before heading off to work to take some photos. Sometimes, you just have to slow down and enjoy!
Finally! Some lenses to actually get excited about! With the recent Nikon lens announcements, many pros were more satisfied. But what about those of us who don’t have thousands of dollars to shell out on lenses? This is when brands like Sigma really shine.
In fact, they just released two new lenses that really caught my eye. First off was the Sigma 85mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM prime. Those who know me know I love prime lenses! Most of the photos I post here are shot with my Nikon 50mm f/1.4D lens. While an 85mm prime on a DX sensor is a bit of long, it still could be a lot of fun!
Also, since Nikon seems loathe to update their version, this just may become a must have for many pros.
The other lens that fascinates me is the updated Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 EX DC OS HSM. It’s quite a mouthful, but the idea of a really fast zoom in this range with Optical Stabilization (OS) could be the perfect walk-around lens for most people.
