New tech meets old glass for beautiful fall magic.
Lens: Super Takumar 135mm f/3.5 Camera: Pentax K3 Photo Location: Westfall, PA ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/250s Aperture: F4.5

I purchased this lens from a forum member just a few days prior this shot. Lucky me! While sitting in my car waiting for my wife to finish her shopping, I noticed this tree in the parking lot, of all places. That's US Interstate 84 in the background, and a rising mountain just west of the Delaware river, the start of the Pocono Mountains! The colors and bokeh rendered from the Super Takumar 135mm lens are stunning to me. This photo hangs on my wall, 16x20 canvas. Using manual focus and the green line button for exposure slows me down just enough to think about my shot. I am hoping to give this lens a try on the Spotmatic for some added fun with FILM!

Thanks for looking and best of luck to all entries.

Happy 2017 and keep shooting!
