the Kx @ Death Valley
Posted By: Bob Harris, 05-06-2012, 07:34 PM

The last month, we have posted several threads on different parts of Death Valley using the K-5 and an assortment of lens and also Terri's Optio A40 point/shoot thread. I decided to shoot Death Valley using only the Kx and kit lens to see how it would stand up to not only my photos but others that I have viewed. Here are five of many photos that I took, hope you enjoy the view from the Kx.

Another terrific series. I don't care that much what camera/lens combo is used. The results speak for themselves. #4 is special in my mind
point taken Bruce, thanks for taking a look, always appreciated. Bob

thank you Serenity for the kind words, I bet you don't have anything like this in Sweden. Here is a link to the Death Valley area. Bob

that is one of the toughest races in the world, temps in the 120's in Death Valley and it is all uphill to the mountains. Here is a link to the race and we are about 50 miles or so from DV, temps in the mid 90's here today but in DV it is to be 110f.
