Kevin,

I am so sorry to hear of the news of your mother-in-laws failing health. Times like these are very difficult to process on our own. I always turn to the Lord our God for help. May you all feel his presence and gracious love, and may you find comfort and solace in Him as well as from your friends and family both at home and here on FM.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you,
Don

We spent this past week at a beautiful log cabin on a lake in the north woods of Wisconsin. Wonderful lakes and trails abound. Here are a few snaps taken with my Df and the 85f/1.4 AIS...

Don - nice shots. Hope you enjoyed your time away. Interesting sail rig on the kayak on your last shot. Has me thinking... Lots of wind down here on the coast. Couple poles, a spare bed sheet.... Nah. Will let that idea go

Thanks all for your "Likes" on my previous image posts. I've been a bit delayed in getting this next set of Tyrrell Museum fossil photos up, but here they are. The first three were shot with the 16 f/3.5 Ai fisheye, which has proven to be extremely useful in museum settings when using a crop-sensor body (in this case, the Fuji X-E2).

Better weather here in Surfer's on the Gold Coast yesterday, took the 20UD out for a spin and slapped a CP on it.

Day 2 - Outer Banks NC

First off thanks so much for the likes on my last shots. To keep the thread chugging along I will continue with a few shots from today. Many more for processing when I get home but wanted to take quick look tonight.

Well we didn't start the day with the apple cider donuts from Leighton's market, but I did go up the island a few miles to a place called Orange Blossom Bakery & Cafe. They have awesome donuts and pastries. They have something they call an Apple Ugly. Basically huge and delicious apple fritter. We split one 4 ways and trust me, I can eat my share of pastries

Spent most of the day on the water, but did come in for lunch and sunset. I broke out the "beast" 400mm/2.8 Ais on the X-T2 (effective 600mm). I also put the 8mm/2.8 non-Ai on the Df for sunset. So went from one end of the lens spectrum to the other with my collection.

First one below is showing the 400mm on the X-T2. I find it is a great combination. Especially with the battery/booster grip mounted.

Second shot was a keeper from my bird in flight attempts with that combo.

Third was from a surprise sunset. It initially looked like it was not going to be that great, but ended with some great color.

Last one with the Df and 8mm. Taken just about 1 minute before the shot with the 400mm

Thanks for looking.

George

I must say the 8mm shot manages to pull my attention back to it over and over again. Very nice light, and you made the best possible use of it George! It takes a bit more then an eye and a mind to switch from 400mm rectilinear to 8mm circular fish eye, but both shots deserve to be printed and framed.

EDIT: if you did not use a focal length reducer, that's 600mm instead of 400mm

The 8mm fisheye shot is superb too! George, that bakery seems like somewhere around the southernmost part of Outer Banks I have made it to. I think got all the way up the Hatteras (?) lighthouse, looked out and saw the building clouds of Hurricane Sandy (I think that's what it was about 5-6 years ago), and very early the next morning heeded the evacuation order and beelined it back up north.

Some interesting spots I remember apart from the Wright Brothers memorial are Roanoke Island and the Pea Island Wildlife Refuge.

Thanks for the likes and the comments and hope everyone enjoyed their Fathers Day.

Mine was good because I got a D500 with only 1440 clicks on it from Marshall's and its a pretty neat camera. I'm still trying to get the Bluetooth/WiFi to work with the iPad but that's the extent of it. The DR and ISO specs are awesome. It and the D200 make a nice Dx lineup.


Kevin, I read and re-read the advice Curtis posted and it is spot on, professional and heartfelt. These times are very troubling for you and your wife's family and your assistance in the coming weeks will be needed. Stay cool my friend and lead them through this. Our prayers still are with you all.

Leighton 3-D donuts, or at least looking like that on my monitor! Great shot.

George that is one awesome sunset and remarkable capture.

Today I'll post some more shot from Zion National Park. All with the Df. The third and fourth shots are from the moving Vette and shot by Robin. They capture the view from the portals within the tunnel and the exit.

Thanks for the comments everyone. I am very flattered. Nature at its finest

Samy - yes, that bakery is just past the entrance to Cape Hatteras Lighthouse. We always come to the "12 South" part of the Outer Banks. Much quieter down here. No chain restaurants, stores or large hotels like up near KIttyhawk. Just small local establishments. When my son was younger we spent some time up in Corolla/Corova (4 wheel drive area) and visited the aquarium on Roanoke Island, Jockey's Ridge and the Wright Memorial.

We have been coming down here for about 17 years now and (fingers crossed) have not had to bug out for a hurricane.

Regarding Pea Island, the fall of the year is the time to come for bird photography. Winter migration. Check out: www.wingsoverwater.org

Liked a bunch from the last 5-6 pages. Kevin, I hope MIL gets the best possible results from her treatment.

I pulled out a lens I hadn't used in a bit. The 24mm f2.8 ais - which I have owned at least three times. This is the best one I have been able to find recently, but I had an old one that looked like it was used as a hockey puck. Beat to hell, but sharp as all get out. Some of the last photos of my father were taken with the beat up copy. And wouldn't you know it - my Lightroom database was corrupted when I migrated to this new computer I put together. 100's of thousands of imported photos lost. Well, in less then 30 minutes I imported more than 50,000 photos from the three most likely folders and found the photo I remembered. FAST - like that! Camera was a F3HP and Tri-X film (July 1993)







Then my wife Barbara did a major bake-off for fathers day. Cheese bread, lemon curd with a cherry pastries, ginger-coconut-lime coffee cake, Thai pizza (didn't survive the photographic process), and Blueberry cake (even the snobby chickens rejected it - but i'm sure Barb will master it next time), and chicken sliders with dill and lemon mayo, cucumber, lettuce, and pickled onion. (also didn't survive the photographic process and massive motion blur due to furious pace eating) These were all shot with the newer best copy of the 24mm ais.
