Reagan, both are nice, but I like the Asparagus the best. Maybe I'm biased.

Reagan, the back-lit Asparagus is really nicely captured. Was this image shot on/at a tree-farm?

No, just a friends garden. The rain had washed away almost everything this year and this came up
after everything else was gone

Superb pano of the mountains and valley John! And Reagan, good glimpse of warm South Carolina.

Here's icicles in Maryland. 10.5cm f2.5 lens.

Samy, your "Icicles" will trump any shiny christmas-decoration. Beautiful!

Samy very interesting comparison.
Sandy nice shots with the 20mm 2.8 It looks like a keeper to me.
Scott here's a shot using the 20mm 3.5 with a sorta sunburst



I donīt find the time to comment, read or post a lot, let alone pick up a camera long enough to take some photographs lately but this one is magic!

Samy thnx for those comparison shots. From those comparisons I prefer the results you got from the Nikon. Who knows, maybe those Leica digital cameras are not as bad as their reputation and itīs just the lenses that makes the results look so flat.


Thank you so much Buddy

Samy, looks like we had the same idea. And I STILL have internet, woo hoo! For now anyway.

An honest confession here, I didn't feel like shooting at all
Blustery winds, a cold night with a slow start sun
Lack of fitness meant my feet protested at each step
I was sleepy so often, I didn't know what was wrong with me
Went and actually took naps in cafes, I've never done this before!
Felt a lil' guilty because my wife would stand (sit?) watch over me while I nodded off, chin to chest
And on the third morning, my mind wandered to form an image of Leighton sitting, typing at a computer
Dimly lit room with only the screen as the source of light
A pang of responsibility crept in
I finally put on my cape and mantel, or what I imagined it to be, slinging my luma loop strap over my shoulders
Yeah, I had to shoot streets

Samy and Leighton looks like you both had a really frosty morning. Great photos especially Lieghton's apple. Much too cold for me. I will gladly take the high of 75 today

Cold cold morning hike up Mt. Si:



John, good to see you have the time for a hike. Was the family with you? I like these two and the pano the best.

Thanks Leighton -

Family with me?

Wake up time was 5:20am, at the trailhead at 7am, on the trail by 7:10am (with headlamp) and at the top around 9:45am. Frozen fingers around 10am.

They were just thinking about getting out of bed at 9am!

Many times when I do my Sunday morning trail run I've been out in the mountains and back before anyone is out of bed. The women of my household are not early risers.

Leighton, 82 at the beach here today

Don, sometimes I feel I am not worthy to even look at your images
Well done
John, always love your trail photos

Thanks Don. Your use of shadows is second to none. I don't know if you stage theses shots, or just wait for the right moment, either way, they're fantastic.
