Painting the West

© 2017 Thousand Word Images by Dustin Abbott

I’ve just returned from an extended trip to the American Southwest, and specifically the state of Arizona. It provides such a different shooting environment than here in Canada, and I love the wide open spaces and “big vistas”. This is Picacho Peak, between Phoenix and Tucson, and the patchy light was painting the side of the mountain peak. The colors were somewhat muted, and so I’ve warmed the image to build on that painterly look. My first look at this new EF-M 18-150mm lens is now live here: http://bit.ly/2hYBXP2. You can also see my detailed overview of the new Canon EOS M5 here: http://bit.ly/EOSM5DLA
