Default K1, DFA 28-105 and Scenery

The K1 is a very nice travel, landscape and scenery camera, as well as good for people. The DFA 28-105 isn't a perfect lens by any means, but for what I paid for it (half price with the camera), it's a very useful travel lens. I've used it almost exclusively for the past 7 weeks, up until yesterday when I switched to the FA 31 for shooting in a museum. I ran into DOF issues with the FA, I think I'll re-shoot one picture today when I go back.

So here's some examples of quick shots I grabbed while on my trip:



A lovely location for a wedding:



A portrait:



A pretty forest meadow?



Not exactly - rather a big swamp!



A candid:



Different type of scenery:



A stitched panorama:



Life grows anywhere it can:



Even over a dangerous places:

LOL! I'm still editing pictures from the second day in Jasper, I have the rest of the Canadian Rockies to go. And I'm still taking pictures elsewhere. I think I take too many pictures, but when you are surrounded by world-class scenery or interesting spots, it's hard not to!

I just loved the location of the wedding - it was wonderful. That's Babine Lake, the longest natural lake in B.C. and the day of the wedding had fabulous weather, unlike the rain/thunderstorms the day before.

It did a great job, that how I feel about my DA 18-135, very useful but not perfect love the range. I know how you feel I spend more time editing than shooting.
