Against the Grain - Playing with Early Morning Sunlight
Lens: DA 35 Limited Camera: K-5 Photo Location: Our House 
Posted By: Sailor, 08-25-2011, 11:59 AM

We are - at last - having a rainy day which began with some watery morning sunlight oozing through a back window to illuminate our breakfast table and chairs. I decided to shoot some close-ups and followed my usual lazy pattern of hand holding the camera rather than doing the job properly by setting up my tripod. Because of the constantly changing intensity of the available light, ISOs varied considerably, but I applied no noise reduction to any of the pics. Initially, I intended to convert these to B&W but ultimately decided to leave them in color.

Beautiful textures. The K-5 is amazing at high ISO. I never fail to be impressed!

I like them! Otis says they not only shoot well, they have great flavor as a snack and teeth sharpener. Good you got some rain....we had clouds yesterday morning, dark and heavy, lightning and lots of thunder......and not a drop.
Regards!

Thanks much, Dave. Yeah, I love the texture of wood grain illuminated by a low sun.

Thank you. And, yeah, the K-5 can certainly deliver at high ISO. Frankly, I should use that capability more than I do - it just that I'm a geezer and the old habit of keeping ISO low is hard to shake.

Thanks, Rupert - and it appears Otis knows what he likes! We got about 2 inches (!) and I actually saw some mud (believe it or not) on my morning walk!
