Nature's Harmony and Power

The powerful and at the same time, Grace, of the Wings in a "V".

Since shooting Eagles last year, I purchased a new camera and recently sold my trusted Sigma 135-400mm APO ( I felt it was an extension of my arm). Upgrading in length and hopefully quality, I opted for the Sigma 175 - 500mm. The new lens doesn't weigh much more than the other...but I came to find out the balance is completely different. What a difference. Hardly any shots were coming out as I wanted.


So, after a couple weeks of shooting, and wanting to blame the glass for the terrible shots...and maybe even the camera, I seem to be learning how to care and hold my new "friend". I don't think I will have to sell sigh of relief.


Funny though, in all my thinking and planning to upgrade, I never once thought I might end up with a combo that didn't work as much to learn I do...and I get to tell on myself with other photographers. I love this place.
