Here’s the link to buy it at the ridiculous discount that was offered yesterday. $498 with the 18-55 lens

A new version of the 5 series has been announced which includes wifi but won’t be out for two months and is listed at a price of $748, the NEX-5R.

I’ll take my camera at that discount and in fact I did, buy it for the Mrs for her birthday.  Shhhhhh. Don’t tell.

The Camera I’ve Been Using This Past Year Just Got A Huge Discount On Amazon From $698 to $498. It’s What I Use To Take All Those Gloucester At Dawn Photos Like This One! Gloucester At Dawn Good Harbor Beach Life Guard Chair 6:34AM 9/15/12

My NEX-5N which you’ve witnessed this past year and what I attribute to a huge portion of the fun I’ve had taking photos.  it has a huge sensor in a compact form and I can’t recommend it enough. And for the price they slashed it down to it is an absolute NO BRAINER!

It was $698 and they cut $200 off on Amazon.  I’m telling you don’t even think, just buy it and you’ll be psyched you did.  I’m getting one for the Mrs. as soon as I finish typing this.  I haven’t seen this deal any where else so I don’t know how many are available at that price but if it’s still there grab one with the kit lens.  You’ll be happy you did.

About The Goetemann Artists in Residency Program from The Rocky Neck Art Colony website:

image

This is the 8th year of the Goetemann Residency Program. The quality of the applications submitted continues to rise and there has been an increase in our geographical range. Applicants have come not only from the Boston area, state of MA and New England, but now there are many more national and international candidates. Choosing only 3 from this list caused us to examine more carefully candidates who best serve the colony’s interest in diversity of stylistic orientation, career level, and understanding of the mission and objectives of our community of Rocky Neck.

Essex MA at Dawn 4:39AM 5/30/12 Essex Salt Marsh and The Burnham House

I have never ever in my life been more ferociously attacked and eaten alive by mosquitoes as I did this morning capturing this shot.  I drove past it at first but had to loop back.  The water was so still, the tide was just right, the light just beginning to peek through.

The mosquitoes were insane I tell you.  I’m still itching. Hit this one up larger.  I love the reflection of the house and the clouds in the sky reflecting in the water.  No brainer, had to get out of the truck and set up the shot, right?

click for the larger version, you won’t be disappointed.

Gloucester At Dawn- 4:54AM 4/30/12 Salvation Star, Providenza and Francesca & Carlo- Railway To Railway

This shot was taken alongside the Railway at The Gloucester Maritime Heritage Center looking out across the harbor to the East Gloucester Marine Railway.

The amount of light in this shot is deceiving because the shutter was left open for a good long time to try to collect as much light as possible to burn in the colors. Obviously this type of shot with such little available light is not possible without the aid of a tripod.

Click the photo to see it larger and the details on the Adventure and boats tied up at The East Gloucester Marine Railway all the way across the harbor.  I like this shot a lot especially considering the very little light available to use.

Below is what it looked like to the human eye without the long exposure-
