Daily Photo – The Lupines at Sunset

So here is a cool thing about this photo that one might not guess. This was taken with a Sony NEX-7 and the kit lens! Yes, the kit lens.

This was shot on Baker Beach in San Francisco one evening when I was exploring…. I was double-fisting it with two cameras… and I saw this quick scene so I went for this experimental shot.

    Had to focus on the flowers first as when you look at the photo with the sun you have to put your hand up to blot the sun out to get the better picure which are the lupines up front then they become more clear.”Try it” Thats my view!!

  • Wonderful shot! Very crisp.

  • Great shot, although, “I was double-fisting it with two cameras” has different connotations outside the US…
