Good Morning Himalaya by CW Steve on 500px

On my way back after the motorcycle accident, I had to sleep in the truck that was taking me and the bike back to Manali. The picture was shot at 5:30am, the sun was rising over the mountains.

Shot with the Canon EOS 70D and the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM, post-processed in Adobe Lightroom 5 and Perfect Photo Suite 8.

I can tell you: the EOS 70D and the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 are a killer kit!

Neighbors #6 by CW Steve on 500px

Unfortunately I had an accident with the motorbike while travelling to Ladakh. I injured my left hand and now I am stuck here in Old Manali, India, for some time. I spend most of the day walking around this mountain village, chatting with the people and taking pictures.

The pic above is one of my favourites so far. Shot with the Canon EOS 70D and the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM, post-processed in Adobe Lightroom 5 and Perfect Photo Suite 8.

Pic Of The Day (EOS 70D + Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 Art) – And Some India Travel Advice

EOS 70D + Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 Art

Canon EOS 70D w/ Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 – shot at 1/80, f/2, ISO 400, 29mm

 

Just a pic to show you what amazing things you can do with the Canon EOS 70D and the awesome Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 Art lens. The both together make a fantastic kit. I am still working on a review of the Sigma, so stay tuned despite my laziness.

I shot the pic using the EOS 70D’s Dual Pixel AF. I get better results when using Dual Pixel AF with apertures below f/2.8. Possibly my Sigma sample has a back- or front-focusing issue. Not a real problem since Canon’s Dual Pixel AF copes very well with such issues. In other words: you have not to worry about back-focusing as long as you use Dual Pixel AF, it always gets it right. The pic was shot at night time, no flash, just an f/2 aperture at ISO 400 – not bad, isn’t it?

If you are backpacking in India and start from Delhi I recommend the Cottage Ganga Inn (no, I am not getting money for writing this). It’s a small hotel in the Paharganj district in New Delhi (the main backpacker hub in Delhi). An inexpensive hotel, clean, safe, and with a very helpful staff. Highly recommended. I am travelling with a lot of gear and had no problems letting my stuff in the room.

Have a great day wherever you are :-)
