    Evian? What's that?


    Lovely vineyard shot. Very alsacian!
    Corlan,small world indeed. yes, we had lunch there. Ayesha ordered ( pretty fluent in French she is ). She had dessert, I am supposed to avoid sweets, amongst other things. Evian..a close cousin of Perrier!

    Here's a story. We were in Colmar. Met a couple from the Big Country in a restaurant. Anyways, got talking. Walked with them to Little Venice, where they wanted a Canal Ride. They were a little disappointed that that there were no Gondolas!

    Anyways here is Ayesha screaming away in French, as on-lookers stare, telling the boatman to sing for the couple at the rear.

    He sang!!! She told me later that she did not want the American friends to go home disappointed with France. So he Sang!

    Re: The New and Improved Fun with Nikon Images!

    Hey gents. Lots of cogitation lately about possible new equipment, but this little shot has made up my mind for me. Instead of a new body, I'm going for the Zeiss 100 f2 macro. Funny how things happen. This was pushing it with the 17-55 DX.

    Enjoy the Fall! It's a good one!

    Re: The New and Improved Fun with Nikon Images!

    Rayyan: nice shot, fun story. Good thing you were able to take a bit of distance from the scene to get it right. Story for a song



    Vlad: a very graphical composition, color contrast's great. Love it!



    Matt: Abby looks good. Interesting foreground bokeh.
    Btw, is it the book she just finished reading?



    Tim: good move. As said and discussed before, not only you got a great camera and perfect control over its files processing, but the Zeiss 100mm should perfectly suit your style of shooting.
    Excellent light on the leaf shot. With the ZF it'll be even better

    Re: The New and Improved Fun with Nikon Images!

    Thanks Steve and Corlan!

    The Zeiss lens has my mouth watering which is more than I can say for the prospect of a new Nikon body. It's inevitable I suppose, but for now, it feels good to be looking forward to the macro. And since one of my old (very) favorites was the early 200mm internal focussing micro nikkor, it will be interesting to see how the 100 feels on the DX sensor.

    Now If I could only sell that 12-24DX I'd feel a lot better!

    Corlan: Thanks, I'll tell her. No, not hers, she doesn't read mysteries. It is "interesting" (bad, or good, interesting?) bokeh. I'll have to take some more photos.

    Cheers, Matt.

    Re: The New and Improved Fun with Nikon Images!

    Just got back from a few days in Wyoming, following my friend's Pony Express Trail run. I ran with him some as well. Great time. I'll post a few here, and a few on the Leica Digital M thread.

    Sunrise near Muddy Junction, Wyoming; southwest of South Pass.

    D3, 28-70/2.8


    About 5 miles into a 56-mile day. West of Jeffrey City, Wyoming. That's his support vehicle trailing him.

    D3, 200-400/f4 VR


    At about mile 10 for the day, just crossing into (and just across) the Ice Slough. Still a little west of Jeffrey City.

    D3, 200-400/f4 VR

    A few more from the same day.

    Company! One of his support team joined him for about 10 miles in the morning. She's Krissy Moehl, a mutual friend, and one of the top female ultrarunners in the world. Krissy won a big race in Japan just a couple of weeks before joining Karl's crew for the final half of his run.

    On this day, she left her vehicle and ran with him for ten miles. Then she ran the ten miles back to the vehicle. (No need for me to offer a ride, she wanted the mileage.)

    D3, 200-400


    Running toward "Split Rock", one of the landmarks along the Emigrant Trails (and the Pony Express Trail, of course). Karl GREATLY prefers running on dirt, but on this day ran about 80% of his 56 miles on the highway.

    D3, 200-400


    One of the many spectators cheering him on along the route.

    D3, 200-400


    Running past Devil's Gate, toward Rattlesnake Pass, which is about 200 yards to it's south. These are two of the major landmarks on the Emigrant and Pony Express Trails, and located about 20 miles east of Split Rock. At this point, Karl was at 54 miles for the day.

    D3, 200-400


    Twilight sky over Split Rock.

    D3, 70-200/2.8 VRII

    Lloyd: Pretty incredible endeavor and experience that you're participating in! This looks like the middle of nowhere. Your photos really convey his singular effort (even with the support and fellow runners). The second photo, above, with the 200-400 sums it up for me.

    Also, his shoes look like they have 2" thick soles?

    Cheers, Matt

    Hi folks...back from Hawaii. Here's one from tonight--'Flying Cardinal'. Stanford took care of USC 37-35
    Wow Bob, now that's a "decisive moment"!

    Lloyd,

    What a endeavour! What a story!
    So well told, instructive and nicely illustrated that's it's hard to pick a favorite moment.

    Overall, it feels like a sum of intimate moments placed on a nearly infinite perspective... a parable of life?

    Thanks for taking us along for that day, from sunrise to sunset.

    About 5 miles into a 56-mile day. West of Jeffrey City, Wyoming. That's his support vehicle trailing him.


    At about mile 10 for the day, just crossing into (and just across) the Ice Slough. Still a little west of Jeffrey City.

    D3, 200-400

    Enjoy the Fall! It's a good one!

    Tim: That is an excellent lens and you have shown what it is capable of.

    Matt: Epic landscapes presented in a dramatic and grand scale. The BW treatment lends majesty to the setting.

    Hi Lloyd: Seems to be John Ford's season. Grand settings, brilliant photography. The second and third ones are outstanding.

    Company! One of his support team joined him for about 10 miles in the morning. She's Krissy Moehl, a mutual friend, and one of the top female ultrarunners in the world. Krissy won a big race in Japan just a couple of weeks before joining Karl's crew for the final half of his run.

    On this day, she left her vehicle and ran with him for ten miles. Then she ran the ten miles back to the vehicle. (No need for me to offer a ride, she wanted the mileage.)

    D3, 200-400


    Running toward "Split Rock", one of the landmarks along the Emigrant Trails (and the Pony Express Trail, of course). Karl GREATLY prefers running on dirt, but on this day ran about 80% of his 56 miles on the highway.

    D3, 200-400


    One of the many spectators cheering him on along the route.

    Lloyd: Outstanding work Lloyd. The shots of Karl deserve a magazine place.
    Lovely compositions capturing the landscape and the lone runner. Lovely work.

    Re: The New and Improved Fun with Nikon Images!

    Let's continue with my Swiss trek. I crawled back up to the path. The knees
    were painful. The Backpack was wet, but otherwise man and equipment seemed to be in service.

    The path was narrow. On my right it fell of sharply towards the valley below.


    The weather was not threatening. It was a cold and mystical scene. But my fall
    brought me back to look at the path and try to fasten my pace before the light
    started failing me..


    The descent seemed to never let up. I had tried to contact Ayesha on the mobile but had no response. Looked at the path, the valley to the right and carefully but purposefully started moving forward with a perceptible limp.

    Selective focus & shallow DOF at his best for portrait.
    What kind of contraption is grafted on is left hand though?

    A classic well revisited. I don't quite understand the connection between forms and the shadows, which is a good thing adding some mystery.

    And what did you say? "Why why why" or "go, go, go"?

    Strange camera settings making for unsual results.
    Coundn't guess you were in a hurry there, a bit of of a gloomy mood though.

    Fav framing is the first one, though the wider angles give more justice to the spectacular clouds' cover geometry.


    One thing for sure: nobody would guess they're from an Interstate rest stop! Is it the I-90? Would have bet more on W-12 (or 2, upper north) in the vicinity.

    (i confess just checking the map for SR12 - remember well US2 though, from Glacier to Everett. Was a bit disappointed at the time (October 2002?) except for the last NF part.)
