New Sony A7

This is the first picture off my new Sony A7.  I’m not retiring my Nikon D750, that’s for sure, but it’s nice having a smaller camera for travel or if I’m walking a long way.  I can’t carry heavy equipment so this camera will come in handy!  I’m still figuring it out so I really don’t have details yet as far as to what I like or don’t like about the camera, but it takes fantastic pictures in RAW format so yay for that!

I went up our local Mt. Diablo yesterday morning to try and get some velvety green pictures.  It was a good time to go because we had a huge rainstorm and the clouds were just clearing up.  I felt like a storm chaser trying to get to the top to get above the clouds!

This was done in Lightroom only for those who are curious.

After the Rain

California has been getting so much rain from El Nino with breaks long enough to let the ground soak everything up.  I haven’t seen it this lush in maybe 4 years.  Not to mention we are getting tons of snow in the mountains which is perfect for filling our reservoirs throughout the year.

This one was taken just after a light rain.  Ahhh…everything is so fresh!
