Cool peak shot from your front yard, Lloyd. There's a Yeti in the left side of the picture
After all the wet inspiration last night, I took a stroll today to fill some of the liquid onto my camera.
D80 with 70-300 ED @ 70mm and f/7.1
The position of the battery and wires is a bit frightening...
I remember getting stuck in a few of those monsoon floods Jorgen, I see that those pumps still aren't working after all these years... Haven't seen you using that 105mm for some time.
The 105mm requires peace of mind, and i haven't had that in months. I have high hopes for December though. We'll see
Different light. The scooter was taken in direct sunlight just before noon, but all the spray reflects the light too, evening things out a bit. The 70-300 ED, at least my copy, up to around 180mm and stopped down to around f/7.1 is rather sharp and gives very punchy colours in direct sunlight. Apart from that, it's a rather mediocre lens, and beyond 200mm, it really disagrees with the Fuji sensor, which is one of the reasons why I mostly use it with the D80.
Brent. A new friend.

Superb portraits, Lloyd
(...looking for my thesaurus... well...)
Simply great photos, both of you.
Ok, Jorgen, my 2 cent...pics into genre photography (D3x, 135/2):
My second oldest dropped by this afternoon.

Incredible shots, Lloyd and Jorgen! I consider myself lucky to be able to see them.
Thank you, Osman. Much appreciated.
Wow. Holy Cow. Amazing. Everyone has posted beautiful images. I am so totally jealous man! Thanks to everyone for the inspiration.
I feel puny in comparison. This past week I've been getting ready for winter. One of the chores is to remove the grass that grows into the edge of my little pond. It's a bit tedious, standing in the cold water and pitchforking the stuff onto the bank. Fortunately, I have Maggie for company.
lovely pond shot as always, Tim
Thank you gents!
Not much art, but amazing light last evening. The clouds were sweeping in front of the sun, and shafts and spots of warm light painted the trees and the mountain. The light was constantly moving, and I had just 15 seconds or so to grab this one as I ran out the door to a meeting.

My son, the art collector. This is the result of one, two-hour session. He estimates they will need 10-15 more sessions to complete it. He's been so sore since this one, I can't imagine what the rest will be like.
Here's what's on his right arm (and what his hair looked like a year ago):
A few more I've made of him. He went through an ugly, ugly divorce a couple of years ago, and really struggled for a while, losing his job of 11 years at the same time, so the third one is somewhat biographical. He worked with me on some test projects just to keep him occupied. Fortunately, he's doing ok now:
Those are all terrific Lloyd! He's an interesting model. Some very nice effects too!
BTW, other than the b/w conversion on the first one, and the somewhat bleached (and vignetted) look of the one of him seated by the graffiti, there is no PS or other manipulation. Just some work with strobes and gels, etc.
