Sailboats in Rockport Harbor

Sailboats in Rockport Harbor. I am having so much fun with my new camera in the dark! Last night I went out with my fastest lens — a 40mm f1.7 lens — and captured this. I think I like harbors at night because they are “simpler” than harbors in the daytime when you can see everything near and far…

The reason this camera appeals to me so much is the image stabilization is so much improved over other cameras that I can take photos hand-held, without a tripod, that I was never able to do before without blur. This has opened up a whole new world of wandering around at night with my camera…
