Pentax K-r in winter conditions

I took the new K-r and put on the 55-300mm lens that came with it to get a few trial photos this morning. Included is one photo of the current winter conditions here. The photo is about a 50% crop and still looks really nice, to me, even at the reduced upload quality.

Wow! That's pretty sharp! What's the focal length and f-stop? I have the DA L version, but haven't been able to get such nice results yet.

Nice shot! But you call that "winter conditions"?

Yes, central Florida winter is a little different, admittedly. The oranges like the cooler weather, but not the freezes. After several nights of below freezing temperatures, it has moderated nicely today. This December turned out to be the coldest December on record here!
