I had rented a Canon L 100-400mm for the weekend,... let me tell you that it is an incredible but also very difficult to manipulate due to sheer weight and shaking issues even with the IS.

 

I took about 500 to 600 pics up there at the Tour de Montréal (Olympics stadium inclined tower).

 

Once i came back home, i noticed many pics were unasble because they were too blurry... (camera shake). Plus, the images aren't incredibly sharp and thats not because of the lense, but I believe because of atmosphere heat and sheer distance ( light diffraction?) plus the fact that i am behind a greenish glass.

 

Anyhow, I managed to capture some incredible angles... I was very surprised with how I saw Montréal from up there.

 

Enjoy!

Une si belle ville tellement sous-estimée par le reste du Canada (and the US)

Sur ces photos, la ville à l'aire vieille et smogeuse mais son âme est beaucoup plus riche que celles des otre ville américaine.

 

En passant sa fait du bien de voir de vert et dla chaleur jten manque de l'été.

super belles photo. L'appareil est vraiment puissant. Moi aussi j'ai entendu dire que l'incinérateur sur la photo 22 devrait être détruit dans un avenir raproché, au tour il y a beaucoup de construction. On m'a dit que la police brulait la drogue à cete place là avant et que ça sentait pas mal le pot .

 

le ''gap'' entre la tour de la bourse et le reste du centre-ville pourrait être rempli en partie par le 701 university?

oui l'incinirateur sera detruit et c'est fort probable qu'elle soit utilisee par la police.

 

Je sais que la SQ utilise des fours a ciment pour bruler la drogue qui sont tres comparable a un incinirateur.

Non, car LE 701 UNIVERSITY serait situé à gauche de la TOUR DE LA BOURSE SUR CETTE PHOTO. La moitié du 701 serait même caché par la tour de la Bourse
