In anticipation of an upcoming trip to Yosemite, I decided to upgrade my gear and bought a Canon 7D and a 24-105 f/4 L lens. Here are my first shots with my new setup. I am also getting a Gitzo traveller tripod with a Really Right Stuff ballhead, but I’m picking those up in the USA when I get there. So here I used my ancient 20 pound tripod that shakes if I exhale while photographing. I can’t wait for that new tripod!
I always forget to cover up the eyepiece when I am not looking through it during long exposures. This was the first time I remembered (well actually I was reminded, thanks Ray) and was surprised to see the difference in exposure settings.
