Sony A7 (2 images)

A few days ago we met my cousins from Michigan in Carmel, California.  The weather couldn’t have been more perfect!  Usually when I go to that area, I make sure I have my squall jacket but I didn’t even use it.  In fact, I hardly needed a sweater!

I brought my Sony A7 with me, but I will say I didn’t really take that many pictures.  Being with family I hadn’t seen in some years, I didn’t want to start taking a lot of pictures and then ending up not being able to focus on enjoying my family.  No worries, I can always go back!

In the meantime, here are two images:

  • Hidden Beach at Pt. Lobos State Park – All I can say is that this State Park is absolutely fantastic.  I plan to go back so I can get more pictures of this absolutely gorgeous place.  This picture is really just a very tiny area of such a vast, incredible place.
  • Panorama from the Lone Cypress on 17-mile Drive in Pebble Beach which is adjacent to Carmel – You can see the Lone Cypress on the left.   One thing I’ve realized is I need a wider lens than what comes with the camera because I would’ve liked to have gotten more foreground in the shot.   The lens I used for this Pano is a 28-70mm and while for general things it’s a great lens, but I have a tendency to like wider.  I’m not sure how many shots the camera took because I used the Panorama feature which does it all in camera.
