I guess flowers have taken over my shooting this week. This one popped up in our yard, and was shot at 1:1.

Jess, I love your flower group, but especially the yellow one with the progression from the single sharp one in the foreground to the etherial yellow blurs in the back...very pleasing; it made me feel good just to look at it, and that's the best kind of art...


So, the dogwoods are peaking hereabouts, and the countryside has taken on that bright, almost yellow green of young leaves that only lasts a few weeks, before maturing in the late spring heat...I actually de-saturated the greens a little because it looked garish and fake .
And, a couple of wildflowers that bloomed today.

Jerry, I love that view from Pisgah Ridge. The lonely tree in the middle of the clearing - that's the detail that makes the image come together, I think. Also a fine example of how well the 24-105 can do landscapes.

Thanks, Jess; the 24-105 was my first "L" lens after switching to digital, and the hood's beat-up condition just reflects its utility. I've owned a 17-40L and a Sigma 12-24 and just never used them - the 24-105 is once again my widest glass...distortion? I rarely shoot ocean horizons or buildings ...

Some from today, trying out the 100-400L, with newly bought 1.4X II (thanks Idahobob!). My first EF Extender (never had a long enough tele lens to need one before).

Jim, I suppose one reason to use the 100-400 with 1.4X for a stitched pano would be to make it easy to "lock" the focal length at 140mm (the minimum for the combo), but...that lens can be pretty well locked with the zoom friction adjustment, so why not use the bare lens? Doing other shots at longer focal lengths? Gear junkies want to know! Believe me, I've used zoom/extender combinations at FLs that could be gotten with the bare lens. Sometimes there's no time to remove the X, or it's not worth the trouble. Just wondered what your reasons
...Show more

The answer is elementary, my mutual gear junkie friend: I have a new piece of gear (1.4X II) and must try it out to see how it does. The 100-400L is still pretty new to me as well, but I've run it through its paces a fair amount in the last month. I wanted to see what general poor effects (if any) the imaging would sustain from the addition of the Extender.

I also was trying to track down moving subjects before I hit the garden areas. I have a much greater respect for people like Peter who photograph birds in flight -- I find birds on the ground challenging! Definitely a lot to learn.

Here's some generally loooooonger focal lengths with the help of the extender. The several are highly cropped as well. (The 1Ds3 shots were yesterday afternoon, right after the Extender arrived. I went back this morning for the other two shots on the 1D3, along with those "landscape" type above.)

Nice shot, Photon. I like the in-your-face straight on focal plane capture of the flat faced flower. Say that three times quick.

I'm looking at the non-is version of the 100, using a 135 + 12mm tube as my substitute currently:


Canon 6D 135mm 1/320 f5 800iso


Canon 6D 1/80 135mm f7.1 1600iso

Ugh! I really blew it on these Great Horned Owls and hope to make amends before the babies fly off. The parents were shaded and severely backlit so thought I'd overexpose somewhat and deal with it in post but mucked up by not shooting raw.

Dad is first, momma on the nest with at least one young 'un is second; both with the 6D and 100-400L...

Onegreatcity, I've gotten over-excited more than once by something on the other end of my lens, and later discovered I'd left the ISO at 3200, or exposure compensation at +2, or somesuch ...so I know just how you feel; at least you'll get another chance before the owlets are fledged and gone...
I'm not sure I'd trade the thrill for the perfect shot, but I'm hoping to eventually develop the mechanical proficiency while enjoying the adrenaline rush...

Here's a local "farmscape", with a 24-105L, and a sort-of-abstract take on a mountain azalea made with a 100L macro...

Thanks Jerry, I really like the Creekside Barn shot; very nice!. I had hoped to return today for another opportunity with the owls but snow/sleet/rain is coming is sideways right now. Our Spring has been the worst in recent memory.

With that in mind, I present today's forecast for our area. Note: all values are Metric. Oh and, our regular daytime high for this time of year is 13 Celcius or about 55 Fahrenheit.

$@X!*$!!

"High zero."
I guess that says it all...and I was shivering in the 8 degree (C.) morning here. I think I'll go outside and enjoy it...

Here are some more wildflowers, and a couple of amorous tom turkeys from last week...

Peter is it me or have your images gained more sparkle since you moved to the 1DX? Skill is the main factor of course, but you must be getting more keepers to choose from. Beautiful series!

Another lovely set Peter! Was going to say #4 is striking but in fact each is spot on, the differing poses are wonderful...you may have converted Linda to a watcher. Perhaps a pond or marsh visit by this watcher/shooter team will bring home an image or two this year...

Jerry, beautiful shots, from delicate flowers to on of the most ugly; outside vultures, yet tasty birds. Those gobblers look mighty wild n gamy...perhaps yummy as well

GWMT, those are some great bright yellow spring beauties, Daffodils are a fav, great shot!

As I sat here staring at yet another crap day, I had a sudden urge to get outside and do something (anything) that one might do on a spring day. So, with apologies to those who don't dine on swine, I've prepared some baby back ribs for dinner.

I'm no food photographer so these will have to do! Sadly I'm out of basic ingredients to make my regular BBQ sauce so I've resorted to commercial grade. All of these were shot with my 6D and a recently acquired Sigma 24-70 f.2.8 EX DG Macro (another story entirely but I'll save it for some other time).









The patio and bbq are still encased in snow & ice but we used it all winter!







Seared at high heat for no more than 3 minutes per side







Pre-seasoned with a prepared, blended spice (salt/garlic/toasted onion/canola oil)







Tossed in sauce and covered, these will baking at low temps for the next 4-6 hours.
