I have always thought this was a great vantage point for images, the fast cars whooshing by made me a little timid. I quickly grabbed the D40 and 70-300mm VR and did my thing, there were still some last few hues left in autumn during the the last day of October.
The Primary kids in our ward tried their hands at making masterpieces, they had success at it despite the messy nature of the exercise. The main thing is to have fun and learn from it. D40, Tamron 17-50mm and SB-600 on bounce, looks like studio lighting.
Ghosts and goblins abounded last night, plus some other characters. Many files were recorded with the humble SB-400, which has a surprising amount of power for such a small Speedlite. The Tamron 17-50mm is becoming more of a fixture for people shooting as it adds the real flexibility for non-flash images.

The beauty of owning an f/2.8 zoom is that it's very sharp at f/5.6, whereas most slower zooms are just starting life at the same aperture. As the sun was disappearing, yesterday, I went to work and found some interesting images.

One of my favorite places for images is the Carding Mills falls, it always seems a little different every time I stop to photograph the cascading water. Of course, I anticipated the seasonal colors would add to the beauty of them and I was not disappointed. The flowing water effect is very effective and easy to do, you need a good tripod, cable release and slow shutter speeds.
