beach walk & new camera

I {{finally}} quit procrastinating and bought a new camera!!!! It's been on my wish list for several years now, and while I love my old camera, I really wanted a "good" camera! I ended up with a Canon Rebel EOS T5 and I think, once I learn how to use it, I'm going to love it!

I tried it out for the first time at Prom the other night, using the auto setting/regular lens. The pictures were just - okay. I got a little more practice at the beach today with both lenses. The weather was gorgeous so Peter and I took our first beach walk of the season. I was a little more satisfied with how the pictures turned out and was learning things as I went along. I still have sooooooooo much to learn, but I'm very excited about advancing my photography skills and taking better pictures for my blog.

Here are a few of the pictures:


 




 


 

 

 
The last picture was with the zoom lens. I finally (somewhat) figured it out on the way home. I like this picture of the shanty with the fish steamer (or what's left of it) and lighthouse (and even a seagull) in the background!!

We grilled steaks and asparagus for dinner when we got home!

 
What an awesome way to spend my last day before starting back to work tomorrow....now, if I can just fit in a nap, it'll be perfect! :O)
