Great photos over the last couple of days everyone.

Here's some from the 55mm f2.8 micro being used in a variety of situations and showing its qualities.


Hi Mark. I like your work with the 55 2.8. I always seem to grab the 50 1.4 ais instead of this lens when heading out. I need to make the effort to use this fine lens more often.

I hate winter. It makes a big dent in my wallet because of NMFAS.

thanks Jose, Scott, for the nice comments on the bike shot - I guess getting down on the ground to take the pic was worth it....lol.

Leighton - I can't remember if I used the lens correction on that one. I don't always use it because - as you say - it can sometimes have a big effect on the image - even on the lighting, yet sometimes it's almost imperceptible.

How's lambing going?

Good to see you survived! I Like the set, but really like the first one how the light and shadows play on the bridge. So, have you ordered the D600 yet?

Well lambing is ALMOST done, we Have 3 ewes left to lamb and we have 23 lambs on the ground.

Not only are we in the midst of lambing, our walk-in cooler where we store all of our vegetables for sale every week gave up the ghost! The compressor seen in this first shot went bad. So instead of paying a huge repair bill to fix it, I decided to buy another CoolBot to replace it. It's a great little invention that allows you to run a standard window air-conditioner below what it's normally capable of. It will allow it to cool down to anywhere you set it, which for us, is normally 40F. We had one in our big reefer unit which I showed y'all last year and they work great. If the AC goes out, you just run to Home Depot and get another one. Not only that, it's a LOT easier on the electric bill.

Oh, I do want that 100/2 Zeiss, but man I'd have to put it on layaway or something . . . .

Wow Tony, that's an excellent price you have on the 180. If I didn't already have one I'd surely snap it up.

Good news Reagan from the hospital visit, shame you have to give up the D600 though, they are great shots.

Ben, very sorry to hear about the terrible heat. Really unbelievably sorry. Just for you here is the fabulous weather we are enjoying here and thinking how glad we are that we go outside and get icicles in our beards rather than having the curse of warmth.

Hi Leighton,

thanks for the bump. I'm just trying to move stuff in expectation of getting the new Leica M

BTW, you're taking some very beautiful pics of the Shenandoah. Many, many years ago I tried out at the Old Dominion 100 mile horse/runner competition, much of which was up in the Massanutten, but of course over Skyline Drive from the 4-H camp and then through the valley a bit before crossing the Shenandoah.

Great fun!!

take care
