“Trip” to Glen Valley, Sumas Prairie

First we have the train picture. Notable mostly because I was nearly run over within seconds of taking it.


I took that picture, backed up a bit and a truck came around the corner wide and onto the shoulder. One of those assholes with the raised shitty pickup on way too big tires. I didn’t die at least, and consequently took the rest of these:

Not satisfied with these… will be going back – looks like a good vantage point for this shot. Some great angles on it in Washington State too….



Thats not a lens hood, THIS is a lens hood

Ordered some lens hoods earlier in the week. The ET-67 hood for my Canon 100mm f/2.8 Macro lens is huge! I knew it was going to be long, but seeing both of them together on my camera looks impressive. 10 inches from front to back. Now I can take the same crappy pictures but look like a pro while doing it! 😉 I also picked up one for my Canon 50mm f/1.4. When I find one for my wide angle Canon f/2.8 10-22mm I’m going to be completely outfitted with hoods. The wide angle one is nice though – its a petal design and that looks like I really know what I’m doing, no matter how illusionary that might be.
