Elora Gorge
Posted By: 8540tomg, 08-21-2009, 06:13 AM

Went to Elora yesterday on our anniversary to walk around the quaint little town. Nice place to spend a day. I took my DA70/2.4 along for the ride. For some reason I don't use this one much. Not the ideal lens for landscapes but nice and light. Here's a few things that caught my eye as we walked about.

Local merchants avoid neon. Some local signage





James Ross house.



and a few DA 70 views of the gorge from the Elora Inn patio:





Great place to sip some wine and watch the river flow by.

I was planning to go to Elora myself. Always seemed to bypass it for some reason. Nice images, I particulary like the quality of light in the last three images. Just look at how the colours sing in the porch image. Bright and not flat or shadow-filled- wonderful bright overcast light!

Thanks JMR - It was a good day for shooting.

The FA 77/1.8 gets a lot of rave reviews but I think there is more than a little "pixy dust" in the DA 70/2.4. It seems to make things look better than they really are. Virtually no PP on these shots. Magic right out of the K10. That's not to say Elora isn't worth the trip.


Thanks Andrew - it is worth the trip as is Fergus.

First off happy anniversary. The lens is sharp and looks like a lovely place.
