Squeezing Through Antelope Canyon

We stopped at a number of cool spots on the way to Burning Man, including beautiful Antelope Canyon. We were a little late for the ‘pro tour’ so had to squeeze through the canyon with all the other plebs 🙂 haha not too bad but I can only imagine the shots you could get with a little more time and space to work with, the colours are mind-blowing!

Leaving my tripod behind I cranked the ISO to around 800 and experimented with various shutter speeds to see how good the Sony A7r II steadyshot feature is… turns out it’s pretty good! Not all my shots we’re crisp but I found enough to work with including this one right here.

Under the Santa Monica Pier

This is my first photo taken with the new Sony a7r II and I quite like it! 🙂 I don’t think it would have looked much different with the original a7r (or any other modern digital camera for that matter) but it at least helps me justify the ridiculous price I paid haha! Well kind of anyway… Obviously I need to play around with it a lot more but at first glance it seems pretty similar to the a7r, a little bigger, a slight bump in stats (more megapixels baby!) and with some of those weird software quirks thankfully fixed (bracketing/timer limitations etc).

As for the photo, I went for a casual stroll along the beach in Santa Monica ending up underneath the pier at sunset. The light blasted through creating all kinds of awesome shadows, just a really cool scene.
