I had a stroll along the beach yesterday. Happy as a clam, but perhaps not as happy as these clams. Pentax 645D, DFA 55mm, handheld using the Pentax 90 degree angle finder.
My recent trip to the Narrows in Zion. My first time there, I'll be back when conditions better to shoot. Fun hike (as long as you don't mind getting very wet )

Great series Wayne -- nice hike UPstream, eh?

Wayne, your the man quite a hike down there.
I think Guy and Jack should do a Workshop down there

The lighthouse images are gorgeous! The Cape Cod lighthouse photo is the best I've seen of that scene. Wonderful light in all three you've posted.

+1 for the lighthouse shots : light, composition, a feeling of something very ...'clear atmosphere'. Realy beautifull.
dittos on your lighthouse series, really exceptional!
Finally I have found some time to post some stuff. Or lets say I still don't hav any time, way to busy reworking my whole website, but I wanted to post a few shots I finally edited.
Canon 5D - 16 Images stitched at 100mm (hope you will forgive me the fact that the first two are not MF, but than again, they kinda are at that resolution ;-))
Canon 5DII - 28 Images stitched at 120mm

Those lighthouses are really terrific, particularly Cape Cod; the sun lit flag adds a nice element.
Protecting equipment is important, there are sections where I was chest deep. When we went water flows measured at 70 cfs. Recent rains made the water cloudy ... disappointing but still some great stuff. I assume it gets quite a bit harder as the flow increases and at 140 the park closes the trail. (a few days after my hike the flows reached almost 900 for brief periods of times due to local thunderstorms and it can peak as high as 3000 during spring runoff or serious storms.) Hiking from the bottom up isn't too bad as long as the water flows are 50-80, you have good shoes (you can rent them locally) and don't mind getting very wet. Rent a wooden pole ... it helps a lot.
i think water flows below 50 in October/1st week of Nov. might offer the best opportunity for good shots, with areas where the rocks will show through the water and as Jack mentioned the light is lower and some fall colors. Going to try it again in a few weeks ... making sure there is no area rain for 5 or 6 days before.
Ed ... I love the lighthouses ... especially that first one. Wow.

Macoberly, that is MAGNIFICENT!
Pretty modest after the other recent posts here!

Man you guys are killing me with the great photos being shared!
Some great work shout outs to to - SergeiR, Ed and Macoberly to name a few!
Recent posts here are stunning! Bryce Canyon, the lighthouses, Bill's coastline, all stunning.
Here's one of mine, shot last week (ignore the watermark)

What a run of great shots. Macorberly that might be the most impressive view of Bryce I’ve seen and I love Bill's shots of the Bruce peninsula. Bill is that the western shore? I hesitate to post any shots, but here’s a portion of a panorama of the Hayden valley in Yellowstone.
Macoberly, can you share any of the specifics of your Bryce shot here? Shutter, stitch, centerfilter, etc? Amazing, amazing shot, I don't think I've seen anything of Bryce that compares (and I've certainly tried).

Thanks everyone for the compliments.
Jamie this shot is taken from the Bryce Point overlook, real original I know. I took this shot about 30-40 minutes before the sun came up. About this time the "glow" is amazing. About 10-15 minutes before the sun comes up the colors flatten out remarkably and the scene is dull. So that being said, be there plenty early for the "glow". I didn't do much processing, boosted the shadows a bit, LCC, and adjusted white balance a bit more yellow than my custom "daylight" setting in C1.
30 sec. exposure with a center filter and f11.
Jamie where was your shot taken?
Remember: adventure before dementia!
As Oscar Wilde said, "my tastes are simple, I only like the best"
Mason, thank you for the info. I've been there at sunrise, but never as early as your visit. Absolutely beautiful!
My shot is from a location in SE Idaho, called City of Rocks. It is a National Preserve, very near the Utah border. This was shot in the evening, looking east. 10 second exposure, with CF and a GND filter.
I so enjoy everyone's images. I try to do what I call fine art. Here is one from last weekend...shot with an H4D50, f 11, 1/20 sec, ISO 100

Tom, technically it's the northern shore - it's the Georgian Bay side rather than Lake Huron.
Thank you for your kind comments - and please post more of your shots!
Such a wealth of wonderful and inspirational stuff on here. Sounds like I'll never get to Bryce canyon with one dicky knee and 2 wonky ankles, but the images are great. I love the lighthouse shots too. Stanley, the barbershop is a wonderful image, pity about the darned TV screens, but that's modern life.
Great shot Christopher.
Great images on this page, a testament to the talent on this forum.
Christopher, I like the muted color and light in your images. All nice images but the vertical is my favorite.
It is interesting to see the different approaches to lighting and color in this forum. Very different but most are natural looking as well.
