    Yikes! Ok, don't have much of that here, being closer to 7000' above sea level. Some flooding in the spring when the snows melt, but not much or often.

    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.

    The position of the battery and wires is a bit frightening...

    Oh, yeah. That's Fred... nice guy, but he borrowed my snowblower last year and never returned it. I'd ask for it back, but he gets pissed off easily, and when he does it's not pretty.

    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.

    Thanks Cindy. I'm enjoying my new (albeit now obsoleted by the announcement of the D3s) D3. We're still in the getting acquainted period, but it's good so far.

    In central Bangkok, It's not nearly as bad, but out here in Samut Prakan, some areas were really deep under water. In some areas, the water is coming up from the drains. I seem to remember that it should be the other way around

    The 105mm requires peace of mind, and i haven't had that in months. I have high hopes for December though. We'll see

    Pretty dramatic view Lloyd, looks like this could be the east side of Timpanangos? Park City is a beautiful little town, albeit a bit pricey however.

    Hi Rob, yeah PC proper is way to pricey (and toney) for me. That peak is actually in the Lone Peak wilderness area. Does look a little like the east side of Timp however. Good memory.

    Thanks guys

    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.

    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.

    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):

    Thanks David. Much appreciated.

    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:

    Thanks Tim. A local talent agency has been after him for modeling work for years, but he just hasn't had any interest. One of his female friends models for them, and his older brother worked as a model before taking up photography full time.

    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.

    Well, back in the old days, "work with strobes" was considered an "effect". Personally, I have no problem with effects of any kind. It's a little like that old line from Mae West... "I used to be Snow White, then I drifted".
