More photos from Maine, July 09, K10D
Posted By: chemrat, 08-17-2009, 09:30 PM

From Monhegan Island:

Exposure: 0.001 sec (1/1000), Aperture: f/8.0, Focal Length: 50 mm, ISO Speed: 200, lens smc PENTAX-DA 50-200mm F4-5.6 ED

Near the Monhegan lighthouse:

Long zoom as above, fill-in flash used (built-in), Exposure: 0.006 sec (1/180), Aperture: f/16.0, Focal Length: 50 mm, ISO Speed: 200, Exposure Bias: 0 EV

Clouds from the ferry that took us to Monhegan Island from Port Clyde:

The same details as above except Exposure: 0.002 sec (1/500), Focal Length: 18 mm, and a polarizing filter on.

Kayaking from Port Clyde with the K10D and my extended family:

Here I also used a polarizer on the smc PENTAX-DA 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 AL lens, Exposure: 0.011 sec (1/90), Aperture: f/5.6, Focal Length: 33 mm, ISO Speed: 100. Was I nervous taking the camera along? Yes. I used a dry bag off and on, and wiped down the lens bodies as well as the camera body afterward. I wouldn't have considered taking an unsealed body in the kayak, considering how much water drips down my arms (I'm not an expert with the paddle).

Nice. I just loved that rocky shoreline. Hard on the knees for me (with my bad soccer knees and all) but so much fun to jump around on. I like your composition in this last one with the kayaks.

I straightened the bell photo

Looking at the quality of photos on this site, I felt I needed to straighten one of the photos above, so here it is (note that none of the lines are actually perpendicular or parallel in the shot):

While I'm here, I've added another view of this old copper bell, not bronze, which is, I believe, the last actual bell to be in service in a lighthouse in the area prior to the switch to electronic gear. It was transported to the site of the Monhegan lighthouse with considerable difficulty, given its weight:

Here's a final glimpse, for now, of a scene from Monhegan Island, this time at an angle on purpose:

Great series of images.
Love the nostalgic colonial-style architecture.
Well done.
