Vancouver, British Columbia & Panoramic View from Stanley Park...

This is one of the first opportunities I had a chance to try out my new Nikon 28-300mm lens, absolutely perfect for travel! I had a chance to sit in the co-pilots seat on a seaplane bound for Victoria, British Columbia. What a view, and what fun to be able to listen to the pilot, tower, and other seaplanes in the area on my headset. If I could be a pilot, the De Havilland Otter would be my seaplane.
A view of the cityscape from the pilot's window. The 28-300mm lens allowed me to create a wide variety of shots, no lens changing for me! I normally carry a 24-70mm and 70-200mm. This lens will easily replace both, much less weight to carry when I travel.
This is a panorama that I made at Stanley Park overlooking Vancouver with my new lens. This has to be one of the most photogenic places anywhere on the planet. I hope to go back one day soon! For panos, orient the camera vertically and overlap images by about 1/3. Photomerge was used to combine the images. Have fun shooting! ~ Deb
