You did this to me!

Well I've always enjoyed taking pictures when I was on trips and traveling, even at family holidays, but I have now moved into the realm of actually going out to take pictures. It started slowly after I got my k10d; I would put the camera in the car on a regular trip or even to work. Yesterday I specifically went out for the sole purpose of getting a fix: taking some pictures!

I've been wanting to try some different lens I had picked up cheaply earlier this month.

Here are few pictures of winter surfing and a nearby lighthouse in Rhode Island

1. Taken with Pentax FA 80-320 F 4.5-5.6

2. The magic lighthouse taken with Pentax DA 40 mm F 2.8

3. BW of lighthouse; Pentax DA 40 mm F 2.8

4. My last sunset of 2007. Taken with Pentax FA 80-320 F 4.5-5.6

Yes, I even picked up some dust on the sensor, just like someone who actually uses their camera for fun.

Shrinkage? whats that? I agree the lighthouses stand out for me, great sky and nice contrast. Well done.

Nice images, I do like the lighthouse pictures but winter surfing? The water is still in its fluid state I don't see any ice? :-)

Take care, Heinrich

Nice shots WW, I especially like the B&W of the lighthouse. Rhode Island is one of my favorite states and the home of the greatest marine archetect ever... Capt Nat, and the second greatest his son L. Francis.
