Chris, Lily and I headed for Pescadero this morning – for an inaugural photo shoot with my new Canon EOS 5D Mark II Digital SLR camera.

My objective today wasn’t to do anything fancy, just do some regular shooting and get familar with how my lenses worked on the full sensor 5D vs. the small sensor 40D and 30D that I’m much more familiar with. Here’s the Flickr set from today’s trip to Pescadero. All of these photos were shot using my Canon 24-105mm f/4L IS lens that I got last March.

Our first stop was the Harley Farms Goat Dairy – as recommended by Chris. We tasted the samples and bought a few cheeses and bread – turned out we were Dee Harley’s first customers of 2009! Harley Farms is running a series of dinners and wine and cheese gatherings later this spring – definitely worth thinking about some more!

We then walked the main street of Pescadero – from the church down toward two of my favorites, the blacksmith shop and the garage across the street.

After walking back to the car, we headed into town for some lunch and picked up some tri-tip sandwiches, chips and sides at Muzzi’s Market (Pescadero Country Grocery) before heading to the Pescadero State Beach where we found a picnic table available just above the surf. The barbeque tri-tip was sliced thin and very tender on a sour dough roll – delicious!

Today was the first decent, sunny and relatively warm (high 50’s) day of the new year – and sitting by the Pacific Ocean was very therapeutic indeed!
