Playing with my camera

While I was out playing with my new camera the other day I took this picture.  Can you see the barn?   It's just a spect in the center of the horizon.


I zoomed in a ways and this is what I got.



I zoomed in all the way and this is what I got.  I have no idea how far away that barn was.  It's not the best photo, but it is a lot closer than I could get with my old camera.  With the old camera I probably wouldn't have seen much difference from the first shot.



I'm lovin' it!

Have a great week.

See you tomorrow with another barn for Barn Charm.

Wow, I have camera envy! If I zoomed like that on mine it would fuzz out like crazy!

Geneva said...

I love playing around with my camera too, but I think you have a MUCH better camera than I do. I can't imagine a zoom that good... great photographs Barb!

Don't know what I would do without my zoom. Great barn Barb!

makes you feel good that the new camera is showing its worth by doing things a bit better than your old faithful. What one did you get Barb? And what mm lens were you using for these shots. Have fun with it and I look forward to where it takes you. Camera seem to have a mind of their own and like some strange magnetism that takes us places we mightn't have gone without them

Looks like you make a good decision on that new camera purchase. I can't zoom in like that with my Cannon Rebel without a long lens.

Brian King said...

Gorgeous views! Congrats on your new camera! It definitely has quite the zoom range. Many of the new ones have quite the focal length.

Zoey said...

What zoom did you get? Dan bought me a 50-500mm zoom for my birthday and it is a charm! This is a very nice bit of zoom...it is so much fun, isn't it? I love seeing what a difference it makes!

Great shots, Barb! Did you get the Canon with the 35X zoom? I have one and really like it.

Sherry said...

Gosh, you're right, it's just a spec, How did you know you were looking at a barn? It's amazing how well you were able to zoom in!
