Edmonton Night

exif-data-rob-moses-canon-5d-mark-iii-70-200mm-f4-isI was up in Edmonton this past weekend visiting some family. I hung out and chatted the evening away, but once it got into the night around 8:30, I had to burn rubber and hit the streets! I love Edmonton and I love some the beautiful views the city has to offer. Here is one of my favourite views of the city, taken from Saskatchewan Drive.

Cancun Night

rob-mose-exif-data-canon-6d-70-200mmI shot this photo from the balcony of my hotel room in Cancun, Mexico this past winter. Most of the resorts were down the street and around the corner. This area had a more authentic feel to it, which I like. 🇲🇽 😀

Fireworks Over Calgary

exif data rob moses canon 6d 70-200mm f4 ISHere is a little Calgary Stampede fireworks action from Sunday night. Fireworks are always a struggle to shoot. You need get a good one in the first few moments or the smoke takes over the scene and it usually doesn’t look as good. Thankfully I got this shot off before the smoke got to crazy.

Canon vs Sony 70-200mm

I have been shooting a decent amount with my Sony a7R these days and I have run into some auto focus speed issues along the way. I have found that Sony’s hit rate of moving subjects is noticeably lower than what I have been used to with my Canon gear. This issue rang especially true while I was shooting some soccer this summer with the Sony E-mount 70-200mm f4 G OSS. Since I have a Canon EF 70-200mm f4 IS I thought it might be interesting to do a little real world test of these to lenses head to head. Even thought I had an idea of how the test would go from my past experiences with both lenses, I was surprised at end result of this one.

For this video I employed my two children to help me out. My 6 year old son Joshua was my 2nd camera man and my 4 year old son Cameron was the test subject :). Oh and by the way, if you have a youtube account please subscribe to my channel. I am going to try and do a lot more videos than I have been doing. YouTube.com/user/RobMoses 👍

Oh Deer Vernon

Camera: Canon 6D & 70-200mm f4 IS at 200mm ~ Settings: f/4 – 1/500th – ISO 320

Yesterday I hopped on a little plane and flew out to Vernon, BC Canada. My parents in-law live in Vernon and I met up with my wife and kids who were already here. No longer then 30 minutes after arriving at the house my son told me to come take a look out in the back yard. To my wonderful surprise I saw this beautiful creature standing at the bird feeder having a nice little snack from him self haha. I quickly snapped a picture with my phone (insurance) and then bolted for the guest bedroom for my camera. I swapped the lens and went burnning back! Thankfully I was able to cap this shot off before he decided it was time to bounce :).

Side Note: I did this post on my ipad. I edited the deer photo with the Pixelmator ipad app and edited the airplane photo with the snapseed app on my iphone. 

Water Like Ice

Canon 6D & 70-200mm f4 IS @ 138mm ~ Settings: f/25 – 25 seconds – ISO 320

The river water in this picture kind of looks like ice. Well not real ice I guess, because when the river is frozen over it doesn’t look anything like this. Maybe I should get a picture of that and show you guys how depressing that scene is haha. Anyhow, these pictures can be fun, try it some time if you already haven’t.

Beautiful Port Townsend

Camera: Canon 6D & 70-200mm f/4 IS @ 200mm ~ Settings: f/18 – 1/200th – ISO 320

I shot this one from the ferry while pulling into Port Townsend, Washington. I am a big fan of old buildings and houses and Port Townsend has an abundance of both. The architecture alone is enough for me to fall in love with the place, but just about everything else there did it for me too :). Visit Port Townsend!

Biking Action

These are a couple of pictures I took last summer of my father in-law during his biking part in the Penticton, BC triathlon. If it was me, I’d be cruising on in to the finish line about 10 hours after the race ended lol. Big up to everyone that can do these crazy races!

Down Centre Street

Here’s a picture from when you could walk outside with comfortable clothes on! haha. This is the view looking south down across the Centre Street Bridge here in Calgary.

I don’t post vertical pictures very often, so I’m not sure about what size I should post them at. Let me know if this is to big or not.

Buster Doggy

This is my neighbours little doggy, “Buster”. I took these pictures during the summer while we were having a bit of a block party. The cat he is playing with is my cat and his name is “Mittens” haha. I know, I know, I didn’t choose that name, trust me! ;).

Sailing The Olympic Peninsula

I took this picture from a Washington State Ferry, while on rout to Port Townsend. I have never done any sailing on The Olympic Peninsula, but it looks like it would be a beautiful area to do such a thing.

The Bow River City

Last night a friend of mine (his blog here) and I went to shoot this photo and we knew a head of time wading through part of the Bow River was going to be part of the plan. On Tuesday evening my son and I had gone to a spot right by here to shoot some photos that didn’t turn out exactly how I had hoped. While we were there I noticed a tiny island of rocks that would be a perfect location for this photo. So I told my friend Nathan about it and I we packed some sandals for walking through river and headed back to the spot. With pants rolled up and gear in hand we crossed the shallow part of the river to the tiny island and let the sun go down just enough for this shot. The river was cold and it was windy, but the picture turned out exactly how I had imagined, so it was worth the effort :).
