Lost Ledge: is a small secluded campground on the north-western shore of Kootenay Lake, 25 km (16 miles) north of Kaslo on Hwy. 31, and 5 km south from Davis Creek Campground. Lost Ledge is known for outstanding views of the Purcell mountain range and lake view sheltered campsites.
These two are amongst my favourite pictures this summer.
Distant Prairie Storm
The day started with breakfast at the Husky Truck Stop, then we drove out to see what was happening in Golden Prairie, Saskatchewan. Why the hell not. Its on the map, but not quite sure why, nothing to see here but open fields and an old Gun Club. Could it be we missed it?
Got up early this sunday morning to put the fuji through some paces. It is almost 2 weeks old and if I plan to keep it I should test it before the return policy becomes invalid. I used the Velvia film simulation mode and I find it a bit too overpowering in colour saturation, but this may have something to do with the early morning rays as well. The dogs in the park were heavily post processed to give them a painterly look, the B&W is a converted colour shot, but the others are pretty much straight out of the camera with little post processing. The lens used was also being tested. It is a Fuji 16-55mm f2.8. A very nice piece of glass, that performs well. No question that shooting mirrorless will take some getting used to but I think I can make that adjustment in time. The camera is not second nature to me yet having been a rangefinder and DSLR shooter previously but I do like the feel of the camera in my hands and the controls seem to be intelligently laid out. At least they are if you come from 35mm SLR background, then it feels quite familiar. The verdict is not in just yet but I think I’ll hold onto this set up and try to utilize the $4000 investment and not think about what amazing destinations I could I have visited with this money, grow where you’re planted, right.
