    Steam with the K5 IIs

    Hope I am not boring you guys with my fixation on old, steam locomotives. I can't help myself when it comes to these old engines. This one was taken as the old locomotive was just coming out of the barn in Grapevine, Texas. Steam was swirling everywhere and there was something about this one that I really liked.

    Well, it's not a competition but I would love to be able to photograph those cooling towers on a cold winters day.. I assume there would be a lot more steam/vapor coming out of them.. I can see it looking very impressive.

    . . . . . but spring in Texas with fields of Bluebonnets and Indian Paint Brush is a sight to behold.

    Thanks for your kind words, they are appreciated.

    Photographs were taken south of route 20, west of I5 between Mt. Vernon & LaConner, WA this past Saturday. Saturday and Sunday were just two beautiful days up here in the great Northwest!

    I wasn't too far off. My wife and I have made many trips to the Cascades via I-5 to 20 through Mablemount. Many evenings before the flight home at Rockport State Park - a wonderful site.

    A trip across Route 20 over to Winthrop is fantastic, especially on a motorcycle!

    Originally from the east coast, moved here in 1996 and the Northwest certainly won over my heart. It is beautiful!

    I've made that trip (not in a motorcycle though); the climate difference on the eastern side is dramatic and occurs over such a short distance as to be startling.

    Hi Jim,
    Definitely a good idea and something I hope to do.
    Can be a bit of a hit or miss subject matter to travel to on this side of the pond though(I don't know how it is with you),due to the switch away from coal and onto biofuel and the limited allowable running hours that a lot of stations have had imposed upon them and thus timing the visit. No real coherent energy policy here it seems to me.But that's a whole different box of frogs!
    Regards
    Malcolm

    The smoke stack is attached to an older power plant building that is being taken down along with other buildings that make up an older public housing project to make way for replacement housing.

    The view of Mt. Rainer, when the weather cooperates, does make a beautiful vista while walking down the street to catch the bus home after work.

    Sunset in Texas

    I was on the open plains outside of Amarillo, Texas when this sunset and the cattle caught my eye. Cliche as it may be, I can't help myself when it comes to sunsets and sunrises.. K5 and DA* 16-50mm

    Shooting in Darkness by the light of the moon..

    Here is a shot I took at Turner Falls near Davis, Oklahoma last night by the light of the almost full Super Moon. I couldn't make the trip Sunday so Friday after work a friend and I drove from Dallas to Oklahoma to try our luck shooting the falls at night. This was shot from an overlook of the falls about a quarter of a mile away from the falls. It was taken with the K5 IIs and the DA* 50-135mm. ISO was 1600 f/4 the exposure was four seconds.

    Now here's the thing... the only thing I could really see well was the area near the bottom left of the photo. Light was coming from fluorescent lights in a vending machine area (that's where all the green is coming from). There was also light from a sodium vapor street light about 200 yards from the falls and light from a mercury vapor street light at the overlook from where I was shooting... and of course light from the moon. The section above the falls was illuminated only by the light of the moon.

    I shot this RAW and did all post work in Photoshop CS6 and used Topaz for final treatment of the photo. Pretty amazing results considering I really could see none of this but a faint view of the base of the falls from where I was shooting. The light was too dim for the camera to lock focus so I set it to manual and put the lens on infinity.

    I know this kind of work is not for everyone but I like to experiment... by the way, I did not get home until 4AM Saturday morning.. but it was worth the trip.



    And here is what I started with out of the camera...

    I like it.. can't really say why, maybe the play of light.. it's a bit soft but not every photo has to be tack sharp to be good.... certainly not trash.

    Very nice how the damsels seem to enter the frame from the right below, rest for a moment in the middle and leave the frame again in the upper left corner.

    I'd say, a walk well worth taken, Malcom.

    All the best.

    I like it a lot.... it has lovely tones that perfectly suit the expression. I also like the softness.

    Re: Fun with the Pentax K5

    great images...and still each time I come here I find out that I really like the color and look of the Pentax files. For my taste the colors beat Nikon and Canon and many mirrorless cameras.
    Lets see some more.
    Is the AF of the K5II reliable? When I had a K5 I had often problems with unprecise AF.
