I think it would be more difficult to view on most monitors Kevin. Besides these are always very subjective choices we make in how we process images. This was how I shot it, so I guess this is how I saw it.

This one is a bit easier. I couldn't resist adding one shot taken with Nikki. This was taken on the way up Mount Tamalpais. There are spectacular vistas in all directions from the mountain, but this is certainly one of the most dramatic. It is another wide shot folks...

Curtis -

I need to visit you down in the Bay Area some time and bring my complete kit! I'd love to take pictures from a location like this. Love it!

You'd probably want to mount the 400 and have a blast! If you ever do make the trip south John definitely let me know. I'd be happy to do some shooting with you.

And Scott, it would be possible to hike to this location. I've hiked around the top of Mount Tam, but that was a few years ago. Starting at one of the reservoirs on the north side of the mountain, it is about a twelve mile loop. There are trails laced around and up and down the mountain from all of the communities in the vicinity. I even hiked one day from Muir Woods to the top of the mountain. By John's standards its small potatoes but it was serious hiking for me. I think it was a gain of about 2,000 feet and likely a ten mile round trip. But today I drove... thank heavens considering everything I covered today.

Here's a shot from higher up the mountain on the road leading to the summit. This is a four shot panorama taken with Nikki and converted to black and white. Working in black and white gave me much greater control over the challenging light created by the clouds.


I was out for the evening and have only scratched the surface of what I shot today. Tomorrow weather looks great, so I'll head to San Francisco for sure. Frankly, I'll be happy to box Nikki up on Thursday and pass her back to Ben. I'm exhausted!

Jose - I love the Herculaneum images. It seems so much better preserved than Pompeii - pity I missed iot in "68!

Georg - looks like the snow is finally moving on. the buck is well captured and the tulips are wonderful

Samy - very good detail on the trunk

Reagan - the bee is superb

Kevin - stop showing off! You're going to start a whole new run of N(E)MFAS at this rate

Curtis - the ultimate dilemma. How to capture tall trees? I'm reminded of John Steinbecks "Travels with Charley" and how nonplussed the dog was when shown a lrge redwood. Steinbeck was hoping to photograph him lifting a leg but the dog didn't seem to realise that it was a tree!

Nice panoramic Curtis. Quite an impressive view. Is it much of a hike to get to this view?


Nice, I've never seen the city from this perspective. I bet the local developers salivate every time they think about what they could build on those hills!

Here is a recent one with the 28 f/2 AI. I didn't realize bikes could catch leprosy.

Ronny - Nice to see the human side of the family!

Georg - You have been doing exceptional work of late. The bonfire caught my attention because of the shadow to the left, was this due to fog or mist? The tulips with the 50/1.2 we're fantastic!

Reagan - Speaking of tulips, you nailed that one with the bee, well done.

Kevin - You nailed yours as well!

Ron - Thanks for keeping those up there, we have too many of our own. Barbara saw twenty last evening on the other side of the fence.

Jose - Thanks for taking us on a tour of these two ancient cities. I've learned a lot just looking at your photos.

Maybe I can persuade the USPS to reroute the package to the East coast.

Hmm, SO MANY posts over the Easter days... Been away, not able to post - let's try to catch up both reading (looking at) and posting.

A little series, 35/2.0:

"I know they have got something... on that table."


"Let me have ..."


"Gotcha! Roastbeef!"


"Wasn't me..." still we pushed the chair just a little further, out of reach...

And then, a week ago, I got my "new" lens: the 180mm 2.8 ED

Running home, shooting all the stupid "yippieh ieh ey new lens shots", enjoying it... And I found my wife preparing the Easter bunnies:



I really like - besides the bunnies - how the 180 renders out of focus highlights...


And here's the whole bunch, 50/1.2 stopped down:

I really like the upper shot with the black ceiling filling much of the upper half of the frame. While scrolling down on the page I first saw only that half of the image - still love that even more than the full image (crop widescreen landscape upper half up, leaving just black and the hole in the ceiling with the great textures.) Cutting that part off the full image turns it into a gloomy abstract art shot. The whole image is great too - lots of things to discover, like the reflection on the bottom right.

Thank you very much, I'll forward the compliment to her. She certainly is better a cook/confectioner/baker than I am a photographer...

Playing around, we found that they looked more like ghosts, especially when shot from behind (no pun...).

With 50/1.2, further open, for a really dreamy look:
