Instead of that I’ve only shared photos taken with the 5D Mark IV since. I think that at some point I decided not to go back to the 60D.
Anyway, here’s an early lucky shot I took when the 60D was new, way back in the far distant past of 2011 when I had less of an idea of what I was doing than I do now.
I had come out of Balls Head Reserve a few minutes prior and must’ve felt that the scene was something I wanted to capture, hence the photo.
I think my photography skills have improved in the time since I took this photo, but I’m pretty sure the desire to just capture something remains strong. However, I might be a bit more selective now, though only a little bit.
I think I did alright with the framing and capturing of the scene. I like that the clouds don’t feel as sharp as everything below them. I also like that they feel massive.
There’s a bit more angularity in this shot than I thought when I started writing about this photo, though not all of it is obvious.
Perhaps the vegetation is a bit too dark, but overall I think the photo holds a good light and colour balance.
Overall I find this photo relaxing to look upon.
On an unrelated note, it reminds me a bit of my life at the time I took this photo. It was very different and I’m glad I lived through that time, I’m happy to never relive it as I’m interested in being where and who I am now.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy.
