SS 2 f/14 100 ISO
I really like the first one, the second one I like but not as well. When I took these was on the side of the canyon road with truck cruising by me a million miles an hour. Even though I had a tripod quite a few ended up with camera shake from the cars and trucks zooming by. I took a couple pictures and I was out of there, I didn't want to get ran over. Right as I ran back to the van Jordan said "you made it just in time two trucks just came by too fast (it was by a curve) and went onto the shoulder (right where I was standing)". YIKES! I am glad I went though, I really wanted to try smooth water on a slow shutter speed.
On a unrelated to river note my first photography classes are this Saturday, they were free with my camera so lets see if they will even be any good. If not I plan on taking some through the adult ed courses at the university (read non-school credit therefore cheep). I also want to take some photo shop classes as well. I have been having fun playing around but I would really like to know what I am doing!

These were taken on the 4th of July, I went out and bought a tripod just for the occasion. I don't think they turned out too well, but hey it was my first try, what can you do! Just my luck I ran out of batteries right at the finale. The next week Alyssa and I went to go to another fireworks show, and that turned out to be quite the adventure. I wanted to get a bit further up on the mountain so you could see all of the fireworks, and not just a small portion of them. Along the way I got a little lost, and the fireworks started. Finally I pulled over on the side of the road when they came into view and let Alyssa look at them, she enjoyed them, but I missed my opportunity. Tomorrow is the 24th so who knows maybe I will try my hand again.
