Canon 50D, Nature, Photo Challenges, Photography

Travel Theme: Mountains

This photo has a bit of a bittersweet story behind it:

ISO 100 135mm 0ev f/6.3 1/250

ISO 100 135mm 0ev f/6.3 1/250

It’s the Canadian Rockies as seen from a train.  We were on a lovely trip from Toronto to Vancouver on the train.  This was one of the last photos I got before my camera broke.  I am sure you can imagine that I was quite upset.  Two of the prongs (wrong word I am sure) were bent and the memory card would no longer work in the camera.  I spent the rest of the trip using my point and shoot camera.  Here is the point when you would be right to note that I am lucky enough to have both a point and shoot and a DSLR.  Also, I was able to get my Canon 50D fixed.  So, I’ll concede it wasn’t a total disaster.  But still.

The Canadian Rockies are beautiful and so this is my entry for this week at Where’s my backpack?

  1. I been there before that my camera is not friendly, and cruel to me during my 1st European trip. I downloaded my camera to the computer desk of the hotel. Because of my stupidity, all the photos were deleted, I accidentally click “Delete.” It was in French language so I don’t understand.
    After that my camera wont shot any single photo, when I brought it to be fixed it said the LCD was broken grrrrr!

    What a great trip. I love Toronto and Vancouver and have never been there by train. Sounds like fun and something I would love to do. This picture is stunning! Sorry about your cameras.

    I hope you don’t mind if I reblog your link on my reblog page?


  3. I forgot my camera in a taxi once: 5 weeks of photos plus the camera gone forever… Shieeet.
    Another camera of mine fell from a chair onto a marble floor. it was a short fall, approximately 35 centimeters. The camera was inside an unoriginal bag and for the price of 317,66 US$ (the cost of fixing the camera) I learned never to use unoriginal bags ever again.
