Our visit to Shenandoah National Park this year was extremely enjoyable, mentally (not physically!) relaxing, and cooler than back here in Central Florida (highs there in the 70s). It was also interesting from a photography perspective and different from last year’s trip. I did a lot of sunset / night photography…
I wrote this on board the Amtrak Auto Train between Lorton, Virgina and Sanford, Florida. Lynn and I were returning from Ohio where we attended the annual PITCA convention and Virgina where we spent a week in Shenandoah National Park.
In summary, Shenandoah National Park deserves to be on your bucket list. If you haven’t been there yet, just go. If you have been there, you know what I mean.
This means that if you can normally shoot at 1/100 second handheld without inducing camera shake blur, then with IS, you may be able to shoot at 1/3 to 1/2 seconds. Truly a huge advantage, as long as subject motion blur is not a problem.
I wasn’t able or even motivated to do any photography last week. So instead I’ll show you another image from our recent trip Shenandoah.
I hope you don’t mind a few more photos from Virginia. The wildflowers and butterflies were beautiful, and the birds varied from what we normally see in Central Florida.
Lynn and I returned yesterday from our longest vacation in a long time, to New Jersey and Virginia. We enjoyed riding the Amtrak Autotrain from Sanford, Florida to Lorton, Virginia and back – something we haven’t done for about 25 years.
