Shutterrunning Along the Lake

After a bit of a hiatus (more than 7 months since my last post), I am finally back! Today's post is an exciting one for two reasons. First, I am happy to report that this photo was taken during a marathon training run. On Sunday, May 20th, I will be running my first marathon in more than 8 years, the Cellcom Green Bay Maraton. When I started this blog, I had a vision that most of the photos posted here would be taken during marathon training runs. While photography has remained a strong hobby of mine over the past eight years, running marathons has not (having multiple serious hobbies on top of a full-time job is difficult to manage to say the least). Nevertheless, the pendulum has swung in the opposite direction as I have neglected the camera in favor of my running shoes.

In addition to the upcoming marathon, today's post also represents a milestone as it is the first photo I am posting taken with my new camera! After waiting several years for Nikon to announce a serious investment in mirrorless technology, I finally decided to give up and switch to Sony. After Sony announced the new a7iii, I promptly put all of my Nikon gear up for auction on ebay and made the switch to the a7iii. Time will tell whether or not I regret this decision, but being able to carry around a full frame body and wide angle lens without any trouble is a definite plus.

Goodbye, Nikon. Hello, Sony.  My first photo shoot with the new camera, taken during a run along the Lake this evening.View Exif InformationView on Map
