London Ariel Shots

I came across these pictures while searching for some pictures of London. Jason Hawkes took these amazing pictures, in the link there are a lot more great pictures. I have taken pictures from plane window before but they are horrible in comparison. Turns out he took these pictures while attached to a helicopter and balancing the camera on a gyro stabilized camera mounts which is fantastic. Take a look at this pics at the link.

Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM Lens

I tend to use my camera a lot, I have gotten used to using my DSLR even if it isn’t the most compact. I have had my eye on the 100mm Macro Lens since last year and after find the price dropped I decided to purchase it. It turned out to be exactly what I was looking for, very crisp clear pictures, brings out the details of the object, I just have to find the right situation to use this lens. The build is what you can expect from a Canon Lens and focuses relatively quickly, and I have included some shots using this camera for a large or small object. I’m still far from the full potential of this lens, but I am enjoying the beautiful pictures that you can get from using it. I would recommend this as a fourth of fifth lens if you like taking Macro pictures.
