First Canal trek with Yuuri

Yesterday I headed over to the Augusta Canal trail for some biking. I rode from the headgates to the pumping station without stopping at about 12 mph average, then relaxed on my way back, stopping frequently for pictures.

I was interested to see that the construction at the Waterworks is done. Now there’s a nice paved trail above the paved parking/work area for the pumping station. It looks pretty nice.

I tried this time for some interesting depth of field (DOF) shots by using the manual focus. I was marginally successful.

The headgates waterfall was barely a trickle, and the river was low. There was a woman standing out on the exposed rocks, fishing. I got a few pictures of her.

I also took the opportunity to take some nice pictures of Yuuri.

Yuu-chan

All in all, I’m fairly happy with these photos. I’d been feeling lately like I’d just been phoning it in, so on this trip I took my time and seriously tried to get good shots. That the pictures didn’t all turn out the way I’d hoped just means I have more to learn :)
