Here’s the second round of images from my trip to Penghu islands. I’ve recently learned that they’re often called “Pescadores islands”, which is interesting for me because it’s a name that I’ve heard when I was a child and always wondered where those islands were. Now I know it!
Now, if you ever shot birds in flight you’ll probably think that these two images were pretty bad, and you wouldn’t be wrong. I’m very proud of them though, because it was my first time ever to shoot reasonably sharp images of birds in flight with my 6D, all previous attempts failed horribly. I should really get a better lens though, the old 90-300mm is ok as a 25$ backup but it definitely performs poorly on modern cameras. I’m really hoping the rumored 70-300mm lens that Canon should announce in August will be reasonably priced.
Here I just liked the vertical reflection of that column in the water.
That lady jumped so many times in front of her friends, I really wonder if eventually they managed to get the right shot.
On Flickr I’ve already uploaded one of my HDR images from the trip, a temple. For a few more shots I’ll need a couple of extra days.

If you like my images and my project, you could help me immensely by sharing my blog and my GoFundMe link, funds are still very far from my required target.
