The Edge of Virgin Gorda – Stuck in Customs

The Edge of Virgin Gorda

Also from Virgin Gorda

Today’s photo was taken at the same beach as the video below. I could have taken pretty much the same photo with the Sony NEX-7, but I chose the D800 because I like the wide-angle lens a little better. I mean, I suppose it’s not a big deal, but I still get a tiny more flexibility with lenses when it comes to the D800.

However, if I only had the Sony NEX-7, I could get something very very close to this, I believe.

I wish my D800 had a articulating screen! It’s so hard to shoot close to the ground, isn’t it? I mean, Live View helps a little bit, but it’s so tough to really know for sure.

There are certain positions you can get in (I call them the camera sutra) that can be crazy-painful. I’ve gotten a little better over the years, since I simply kind of “know” what the picture will look like without having to gorilla-pod my neck…
