I can't believe that you said that!
(The army will be on it's way to get you.)
Let me correct that, I'm sure I was misunderstood..(as Otis gathers his Army and heads my way).

What I meant was a recipe for an exotic nut mix to keep your squirrels fat and healthy like the one I posted....that's all!

Regards!

The squirrels in my garden have stopped eating bird food. They are very interrested in your recipe

Click on the photos for details...

Some neat shots there FS, but my favor leans to the tree shot with the perfect sky for the scene.

FS....Don't even think about meeting any squirrel demands for exotic meals....once you start it never ends, but it will get worse...and worse. Next thing you know you will be paying for a weekly beer delivery for them, like I do. I used to have enough cash to last if I lived to be 200......now I just hope to get through each week.

Regards!

Love that landscape with the lake, FS.


Here are a few with my 20-40 ltd.


For some reason, I keep reading reviews of the Pentax DA 12-24. Must be coming down with something . . . :-)

Thank you ! I will try to push them away, it wil be difficult, but I will try. If you don't hear from me tomorrow, please send the navy seals and the special operations command to rescue me Don't forget the rangers, there won't be enough here
I don't know if they have internet, but one is looking badly to me

Some recent shots from a trip to the Smokies in North Carolina/Tennessee.







All were shot with the DA *16-50. The last one was shot indoors at an Aquarium in Chattanooga.

Spent a few hours today at the Genesee Country Village and Museum. Saw this high contrast scene and though that I would give it a go. The lens is an old friend of mine that I got new a few decades ago. An Adaptall Tamrom 70-210 F3.5. Some purple fringe. I almost expected it on this scene.

Frederic, outstanding work as usual... always a pleasure... but I have to ask, on my monitor, the first flower shot, the stamens look a little odd... is it my display, or maybe they are a little cooked? My K-5 can really go crazy on yellows if the conditions are just right and sometimes I have to back off the yellow highlights channel during post. That said, you continue to find the picture hidden in the landscape, not unlike the sculptor who finds the statue hidden in the rock or clay.

Trout - You make a strong case for that short zoom...

Rondec, Gaweidert, and all - excellent work!

And I too have lens lust for the DA12-24 or maybe the Samsung 10-20... or 8-16... something to fill that ultra-wide niche' in my setup. My DA16-45 is my widest lens at the moment... but I've been shooting the Tamron 17-50 F2.8 and leaving the DA at home... LBA is a cruel mistress!

I will say nothing bad about about the DA 12-24mm. Here is a sample of it from mine. Pop up flash worked great here.

BTW, this is the birthing room. It is a small room next to the kitchen where the mother stayed as her due date neared. This way she could keep an eye on things.

No they are normal. Is your monitor calibrated ?

The 8-16 would be perfect for you. It has far less fringing than DA12-24 !

Nice shots kcupp95 !

Yes, with a spider, and the yellow for instance in kcupp95's surfboard shot looks ok on my screen... maybe it has something to do with the texture in the stamens and my minds eye just isn't expecting what it sees? heh... it's only by the smallest margin, and still could be my display. I wouldn't lose any sleep over it since all your shots usually look incredibly good on my screen, it's probably just the way I'm seeing that one picture.
