A550 & Winter in Colorado (several shots)
Dec 21, 2010

Last weekend myself and a couple friends who are Nikon shooters decided to head to Rocky Mountain National Park and the rural parts of Larimer and Boulder County to do some shooting. The weather was pretty insane with us being on the leading edge of a huge snow storm, just in the outflow from it, with the sunrise at our backs, we decided to hit the famous St Malo church for sunrise, knowing that the light would be just insane. The wind was gusting at what had to be over 60mph at times, so I wasn't about to get out and use my tripod, but the Puffin Pad would get the chore of stabilizing my shots. (BEST $30 I ever spent on photo equipment, let me tell you!)

All the landscapes (except the waterfall and ice shot) were shot actually with my old Minolta 18-70mm kit lens from my 5D (I dearly love this lens, I think I must have gotten a heck of a copy, it's sharp as a tack!) and the wildlife with my Tamron 200-400mm Fotodiox GND & CPL used in the landscapes.
