Where is everyone? Is Not-Winter really Get-out-of-town season?
Basically, yes. Not-Winter is too short to get all of the jobs done at the lakeside cabin, but that doesn't prevent us from trying..
It is also somewhat surprising how few people are out and about at 8AM on a Sunday. Even the mosquitos were just waking up.

Bugs are bad, and the DA 55-300 has become my walk around lens.

From my bike ride last night. It was totally clear which made me feel like I could take the night off landscape photography (mostly).

From the Tall Ship parade today on the Cleveland lakefront. Heavy crop but the 18-135 did okay. (Cross posted in KP forum)

Was at the Calgary Stampede yesterday watching the Pow Wow dance competitions on the new stage at the Elbow River Camp.

When the Fancy dancers came on, it was "spray and pray" for me on Auto with my K-r and 18-135 just trying to zoom and frame as I had no idea where they would be next.

Got some images I am pleased with. Here are a few Jpegs straight out of the camera.

Thanks Ray. I find the combination of 18-135 and 55-300 PLM (preferably on different bodies) to be great for a cruise, where you want to minimize lens changes and catch a range of subjects.

Great skies in 1, 2 and 3, Des - and especially in number 1. Nature so often creates its own art and we just try to preserve it!
