Kennesaw Mountain as seen with the 50mm f/1.4

This is the 3rd installment of my project in which I take only one lens with me as I hike up Kennesaw Mountain. I have already done this with the 24-105 f/4 and 200mm f/2.8. I am really enjoying this 50mm lens, and here are a few photos from the shoot. This was the first time I have been up there since the leaves began showing some real color. I do wish it had been a sunny day, but I think the lens did quite well. The camera is a Canon 6D.

And here is a link to the entire set. – http://www.flickr.com/photos/srahn/sets/72157637167748814/

Shooting the Milky Way

This is one of my favorite things to photograph. The trick is finding skies that are dark enough so that you can actually see the Milky Way. Luckily we have the Deerlick Astronomy Village here in Georgia, and I am proud to be a member. It’s about 100 miles east of Atlanta, and it has some of the darkest skies in Georgia and nice low horizons in all directions.
