A gray, rainy weekend. Nowhere spectacular--my back garden. Pentax 645D, 55mm @ f/22.
Some very dear friends of mine own a holiday park in the Catlins and we've been discussing putting on a photo workshop there: http://www.catlinsnz.com/
Some recent images from Death Valley where I was fortunate enough to meet Don Libby and his wife.
I've also be working on updating my new website. Take a look.
Very nice captures, my compliments!!!
MA - wonderful captures.
Jack, I had that park on my list when I went over this time, but in the end went a bit further on down the coast before I stopped for the night. I'll keep an eye on your workshops thread but the old $$ are a bit tight at the moment.

Thanks Jack and Odille.
Have to post this one here -- it's already in the IQ180 review, but it I think it's decent enough to place in this thread. I was in Yosemite this past Wednesday and the light and weather were magic. I know it's a cliche, but still, I like it:

Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland. Alpa, P20+, 47mmXL & 4.5/90mm. The usual caveat - quick laptop processing so needs work and some selective editing.

Woody, great shadow!
cmb, I hope you have a nice stay in Switzerland!
Greetings from Bern (not so far from Lauterbrunnen;-)
(from the wall above they make base jumping. Many dies...)
Your Swiss series is excellent, I'm enjoying them all!
Rem - thanks for the greetings! This is my second time in Switzerland and I am enjoying it immensely.
Jack - I'm just trying to put into practice all I have learned from you, Guy, and all the great people here at GetDPI. But I am envious of the IQ screen - Standing on a glacier in midday sun I have no idea what is on my LCD, temperature and weather changes dramatically very quickly but my little back is coping with it, it seems to be in much better shape than I am and when I get back to the hotel it always seems to deliver some little gem.
"Because of the back or the photographer?"
some levity; found by my daughter. i think I spotted a blad in there...
I sent a private post, but I thoroughly enjoyed the images on your web site, and wondered where the yellos were?
Thank you -- I think
Being in the right place at a good time is half of it. The next 1/4 is knowing what your vision is. The final 1/4 is the combination of technical capability and aptitude to bring it all together. But... When you have all of that AND get it laid down quickly and accurately with great tech, it's a sweet finish to the process!
Seriously, if you've been to Yosemite, you know the "parking lot" and "photo patio" for Tunnel View. (There are actually two now, one on each side of the road, this was from the "old" one.) And it was a busy day in the park. When I got there, there were maybe 100 other people with cameras out snapping on the old side, and another 50 on the new side using everything from cell phones to P&S cams to heavy duty DSLR's and even a view camera. I hopped out of the car, set up, captured a frame, reviewed using my NEW technology, made an adjustment (exposure), snapped again, reviewed that one and confirmed I had it nailed it, then grabbed a few more insurance frames and was back in my car and out of the parking in under three minutes. How many of the other folks got this same image, I have no idea, but there was a great deal of dynamic range in the scene, so I'm guessing not many got it as well as I did. In the end what counts to me is that *I* got it, and the tech definitely helped me get it
said, right time, right equipment, the good eyes and aptitude to put all together, can get what you just posted. As I said, its the photographer or the new back.. as you explain in your case its both.
Thought I'd share one of the first images shot using my new P65+
Technical information: WRS1000, P65+, Schneider 72mm f/8 1/125 ISO 50
Processed in C1Pro
Yeah, I'm a happy camper. Dave will be getting my older P45+ back sometime next week - I'm keeping this one.
Don - Good luck with the new back!

I'll add my wow to that of the others and I don't like wildlife.
