First shots from my motorbike tour to Poland
Lens: FA 1.8/77 limited Camera: K1 Photo Location: Easrern Poland 
Posted By: volley, 10-03-2020, 02:29 AM

I've stayed for a few days with an friend in eastern Poland, very close to the border with Belarus. Each way a little over 1000km on my motorcycle
We have enjoyed photographing the wonderful nature, culture and history of the area along the river Bug which, over the centuries, belonged to several countries. We also spent 2 days in the Bialowieski National Park, one of the last "wild forest" in Europe where you can meet the European Bison in the wild (we did, and it is exciting!).

I've just returned last evening and am just starting to process ... there may be several post in the next days.

But for a start, can I just say once more how much I enjoy the 77 limited?

It's nice to travel, if there will be other posts with other very interesting photos, the first and the third remind me of Count Dracula and the 77mm could be my next purchase.

Ciao and other good adventures, Mario

Three fabulous images! Keep them coming. I don't think I've ever seen a gravestone with a big smile on it before.

Thank you all for your kind comments!
It was an interesting tour, for sure.
Sometimes I am amazed that I have been travelling to distant countries for 30 years (well, for business) but know so little about my "European neighbors" with great landscapes and rich cultural heritage. And wonderful people, not to forget!!

The photographer might have had a little something to do with how good that 77 is.

I'd definitely be interested in more of such superb pictures of an interesting landscape. In post-processing, watch out for white balance, the 77 has a tendency to render with a purple tint on the K-1 - like in the 2nd and 3rd pictures.

Thanks you! I am not sure if the "purple tint" you've mentioned is really coming from the 77. I suspect I was a little careless in processing?

I think it is somewhat susceptible under overcast conditions. I observed a similar tendency with the DFA 50/2.8 Macro and the DA70/2.4, my other lenses, e.g. the 31mm Ltd. or the DFA100/2.8WR, seem to result in a more neutral white balance.

That sounds like a very nice trip Norbert. And that shows! Nice moody first photo. Beautiful structure of that old tree and a very strong reminder of the history of the area in the last one.

Thanks, I'll try to be aware of that tendency.

Thanks you Remco! All of eastern Poland has so much to offer for landscape photography ... from the coast of the Baltic Sea to the Bieszcady Mountains National Park at the boarder to Ukraine. And travelling there is easy!
