After a couple days of rain here in NJ - and a record rainfall in NYC - I wish it would all go to Texas!

Anyway, here's of rainy Rose of Sharon photos from this morning.

Edit: added a 4th

Very nice shots. That Quantaray was one of my favorite lenses until I replaced it with the Pentax 55-300.In fact I'm giving the Quantaray as a prize in my photo contest that ends next month.Check it out.Here's the link.--charliezap

Hmm, I'll have to check that out.

I have an interesting history with 300mm zooms. I had the Tamron 70-300, sold it and got the Pentax 80-320. That lens was terrible so I sold it and bought another Tammy 70-300. Sold that and got the Pentax 55-300. Sold that and bought the Quantaray 70-300, which of course is the Tammy 70-300 in cheap clothes.

The Pentax was the best of the bunch, optically. Sharper wide-open @ 300mm than the Tammy, better color and contrast and of course much less PF. But, and it's a big but (and I do not lie!) I really really missed the Tamron's/Quantaray's 1:2 pseudo-macro mode. The moral of the story is that I chose the lens to fit my need over the "better" lens.
