GMTA! Mine was from a dead ash tree in our backyard. The tracks were from an Emerald Ash Borer, which are pretty prevalent here in the Midwest.Some driftwood on a Lake Erie shore. Ancient hieroglyphics from a lost North American civilization, alien communication frequencies (note the sine wave resemblance), insect tracks? I think I'll go with the first choice. 645Z, 28-45mm.
Beautiful work, thank you for sharing this image. :thumbup:Dahlia

A good friend has a magnificent garden. I've been meaning to study his dahlias since starting this little floral portrait project last Spring. I find the beauty of these flowers to be breathtaking...
By all means the COVID mask post was meant to be a light hearted joke, not that the pandemic is a joke by any means. My remark that "we older folks" needed a respite did not intend to imply any of my friends here were "older". I was referring to my wife of 61 years and myself. She is 80, and I am 83. This is a great place for me to visit, I would never in a million years put anyone down.Matt, I have read Dave's posts for years and exchanged a number of PMs; there is and was no question in my mind that his reply was a light-hearted, teasing comment. Oh, and the guy trying to catch the football really missed.
I can vouch for the 50R and 100-200mm lens. It is unbelievably sharp. And I agree hand held with the OIS is fantastic. I used it last night hand held at sunset at 200mm. Apparently the OIS even works while holding the camera, as it does not seem to "bounce around" while viewing. I wish my 32-64 was also OIS! Also, I love the 3D look to your image presentation. I have been adding an imaginary mat and frame, but your presentation is great.Another sunset
The 45-100 has really surpassed all my expectations for this lens!
I bought it as a lens that should be possible to also use as handheld and not only live its life on a tripod.
This one was at 1/40 S handheld.
But, I have one of the same view taken later, at 1/8 S, handheld, as sharp as this one!
And the same with the 100-200 + 1.4 converter.
On a tripod in heavy winds, the tripod is vibrating!
But sharp photos with the OIS on.
Technology gets better and better!

M-42 version? I believe I have the same lens.. Mine is the one with thorium(?) in it, I will leave it outside for a day or two in the summer every year to help remove the yellow cast.For something completely different: Grass, GFX, 60s era 50mm Super Multi-Coated Takumar @ f/1.4
