Sigma 18-35mm f1.8 Art lens review

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8mlzu0qssvI I've been testing this lens for the past few months, and have so far been extremely impressed by it! Here's a few of the photos I've taken with it this fall: https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-YqcAjG3AZ-M/W8jnUVDHpDI/AAAAAAAAH0k/lwClfJraFg06Xi2dgaRJnveBGqXUjLUnQC...

Quite a video. I'm frequently wrong about how large of prey a snake can manage to handle.
Thanks - what really gets me is the way the snake didn't bother to disable the toad before eating it like other snake species would have. It just crunched it down!

The Last Wild Ride of Mr. Toad - an epic wildlife encounter!

https://i.imgur.com/9FiLSRh.jpg https://youtu.be/lFf920t05SM (still can't embed videos on Oregon hikers) Mr. Toad meets Mr. Garter Snake - who will emerge victorious? I filmed this video a few weeks ago near Mt. St. Helens. It's hard to get a sense of scale in the video - the toad was about the siz...

Mindshift Gear Firstlight 40L backpack

I just got a new camera backpack! I needed something that could contain my new Sigma 150-600mm lens and a bunch of other gear besides, and this pack looked ideal. So far I'm loving it! I've put together a short unboxing and first impressions video: https://youtu.be/e8KhDwLYLxE And a blog post about ...

Sigma 150-600mm Contemporary Lens Review

https://youtu.be/bNLn5GWx4Vw I just got this lens at the beginning of the week, and this was originally meant to be just a "first impressions" video. However, as I was creating it and shooting with the lens I kept adding to what I wanted to talk about, and by the end it was more of a review than th...

Re: New DSLR - Lens must haves?

I just came across this thread. I hope that I am not too late. Ditto - except I'm way later! Just wanted to throw my 2 cents in. I'd definitely second the Rokinon 14mm - that lens is awesome, and is probably your best bet if you want to take wide angle photos of the night sky without spending a for...

Re: 2018 changes to MSH permit system

It's actually really insulting to hear you say "It wasn't their fault" of course it is their fault at the end of the day. I apologize if I caused offense, that was not my intention. The message I was trying to get across is that the people having to deal with the situation, and who are getting the ...
