The “Geezer Gatta” at Lake Providence, our new home!

February 09, 2012

It’s called “Lake Providence” and it is really very pretty.  It’s also a place we now call home and are enjoying more with each passing day.  We feel very blessed to buy a home here and are making new friends in our community.  We are looking forward to creating lots of beautiful portraits around this meticulously landscaped lake and surrounding areas.

These are remote controlled sailboats and this is a very serious competition called “The Geezer Gatta” you just gotta love that!

This will help you with the scale of the boats.  Let me tell you this is a serious 3 day competition!

I am shooting with the new Nikon D7000 camera.  Unfortunately, I didn’t have my very favorite lens because I  sold it.  Yep, I am waiting on my brand new 70-200 2.8 VR II to arrive from Nikon!  I hope to get it any day now.  My first time without a long lens in decades, and I really miss it.  So, the longest lens I had was a Tamron 90mm on the crop sensor it worked out OK, but I sure did miss the compression I would have had with the zoom.  As you can see, I didn’t give up any sharpness or saturation by using this lens.  I think it is an incredible value and a versatile lens that is probably underrated by most people.

Looks a little more interesting after Nik Viveza and Color Efex filters are applied
