Once my work week starts I never seem to have time to follow the thread. I work 12+ hours a day plus an hour commute each way, so needless to say, I don't have much time!

Some great stuff, as is the norm for this thread. Just a few standouts for me:

John - Some wonderful work with Nikki. The area around you is breathtaking.
Georg - Your composition with the 16mm is mesmerizing! You have a wonderful eye and I always look forward to your posts.
Scott - The last set with the snowy trees was beautiful.

Hopefully I will have some more time tonight on my break to check out more of the images.

–Tony

Headed out to West Marin and ended up at Limantour Beach on the far side of Point Reyes National Seashore. Here are a few photos from the day... I shot these with the 50 f/2 H.C. AI'd that was manufactured about forty years ago. It is a very capable lens.


This is the approach from the parking lot.


Doubtless it was the fact of being in the middle of the week that made the beach relatively deserted. There was a light breeze but the sun was warm. These two were having quite a good time together.


It was fun watching these little birds dart out as the wave receded, then dash in as the next wave arrived. They feed beneath the sand. I imagine Jose can explain it all to us, but then he is on his way to Italy... lucky fellow.


Fascinating to see what the moving tide leaves behind.

And a few more...


This couple was backlit by the bright sun. This was what I hope to achieve. And this is what Sue hoped to achieve...



This was taken on the way back to the car.

Thank you Ray, Ben Leighton, Georg, and Reagan for your comments. We ended up with about 12" of snow from the storm. Not as much as to the east of us. I managed to get out the next two days to take some additional images. Here are a couple from the next day.
Scott

The first image...wow. Just, wow. Would you mind telling me your workflow on the conversion? Stunning shot.

Curtis, the shot of the stone and lines in the sand really works for me. I find the shot very peaceful. When I looked at it and the one with the bird, I was there on the beach, smelling the air, feeling the spray... Don't know why those two struck me like they did, but thank you for posting them. I think they are great shots.

Thanks Kevin. You're close enough to the Bay Area that you might even have visited that beach at some time in your life. There are so many things that draw one's attention. I loved seeing what the waves did to the beach as they left. I enjoy landscape shooting but I'm also very fond of graphical sorts of images, as with the stone and the pattern left in the sand as the water retreated around it. I also like the shadow created by this small feather.


Nature's delights are unending.

I'm afraid I'm not much of a guide when it comes to San Francisco Kevin. I've lived in the East Bay (Oakland), the North Bay (Vallejo) and for the last 23 years in Marin. I've been musing about where I might take Nikki when she finally arrives for the last stop on the Great Lens Adventure and think it really needs to be San Francisco. But because folks on the thread from around the world don't really have experience with the city, I'll likely do some tourist things myself... though I won't talk about them yet. I'll let the photos tell the story.

When I lived in the East Bay I spent a fair amount of time in San Francisco where I had good friends, but the city has changed a great deal since then and apart of a general sense of neighborhoods and how to navigate around town, you probably know the city better than I do if you visit often.

I am planning on visiting the de Young museum, both to see the building and to see a collection of Dutch Painting from the Mauritshuis, the national gallery of the Netherlands . I visited that museum a couple of years ago, especially to see Vermeer's the Girl with the Pearl Earring, which is part of the exhibit at the de Young. I'm looking forward to that...

It seems we have a few folks from northern California on the thread at the moment. Pretty cool...

I'm too busy with my camera Americo to think about fishing when I'm at the beach. This photo taken by my partner represents the only two minutes of the day when I didn't have a camera in my hand. And my camera bag was at the immediate left, the camera's right. I'll leave the fishing to those who have some talent at it... and I think we'd have to rely on Reagan if what we're looking for are Marlin...

Heheh, I was trying to be a bit of a smart Alec with that remark in reference to classic book, that I honestly can say, never read, I think it is Hemingway, The Old Man and the Sea?

Blue hole in the stormy sky + late afternoon sunlight by labecoaves, on Flickr

D7000 + Nikkor-O 35mm f/2 F ai'd hand held, ISO 100, f/8 at 1/125s.
I suppose this old lens performs well for cityscapes too.

My last photo for the next 10-12 days, since I am leaving to Herculaneum and Pompeii tomorrow afternoon. I hope Vesuvius does not wake up in the coming days
Up to now I am struggling about which lenses to put in the bag with my D7000. I need to stay light since will be walking all
...Show more

Jose, hope you have a wonderful trip, sounds like it should be.

Since you want to take the D7000 I'd go with the 16/3.5 + 35/2 and the 50-135/3.5. Just my 2 cents. Enjoy yourself!

Curts, Your laundry photos are very appealing if I remember the bike shop is next door
I love the look of the ocean in California with the hills in the background.We don't have that in Florida
You should buy Sue a camera and share your lens.Great photo of you by her

Scott, great work on the last 2 B/W
