A red rod sensibly-parked under a tree on a 90F (32C) afternoon in Clute, Texas. I could have (barely) straightened the horizon, but I decided that I liked it better with a bit of heel to port. Unfortunately, I had set the lens wide open for an earlier shot and forgot to stop down, so the pic lacks a little of the zing a DA 15 can produce.

Just for you Jer if I get ambitious I'll take it outside and take some macro shots on the ground maybe with a bug or two--rocks --twigs--etc. Another project--I'm glad I'm retired.--capn zap
Sure appreciate, my friend. I'd like to see other models from the car collection when you've got some time on a rainy day. Retirement is a busy life, you know.

Great shot! love those old cars. The color is perfect. Someone spent a bundle on it......they might laugh at our complaints on lens prices!
Hey thanks, Rupert. Yeah - I've no idea what it would cost to do this sort of restoration, even though I watch Wheeler Dealers on the Velocity Channel.
