Key West Lookout photo blog

Key West Lookout, this blog, is part photo blog and photographs and images of Key West have always been a vital part of the blog from the beginning. There must be more than a thousand images on this blog by now, with more being added all the time. And these selected carefully from the tens of thousands of pictures I have taken in Key West over the years.

Here's my picture of the week, I LOVE it!

Well, there is a new camera on the block for me. I've left the Panasonic at home for this visit to Key West and have just bought this brand new camera, new to the market only recently: the Canon PowerShot SX60 HS. 

I've only just got it 2 days before this vacation so it's taking some getting used to. The main benefit of the camera is the 65x optical (not digital) zoom. Once you add in the digital zoom (although I hardly ever ever use the digital zoom) it can shoot 222x zoom. Which is a lot!

Introducing the camera....

...which took these pictures....I put it through it's paces this week and so here I proudly introduce my Key West pictures of the week.

More on Key West Bight / historic harbor

Here's the view with no magnification. Can you see the red buoy shown in my next picture down? It's just right of the wooden pole second from the right (it appears black). It's tiny. But then with zoom....
Extreme close up, taken from shore, of a buoy in the channel outside Key West Bight. This shows the power of my new Canon super zoom camera. This is taken at about 100x magnification. With the naked eye I had no idea there were seagulls using it as a seagull spa
