Last night found me at the foot of the Benicia-Martinez bridge, specifically the old railway bridge, built in 1930, which carries passenger and freight trains across the Carquinez strait. This was a real treat as the online train schedule pretty much indicated the precise moment when the train from Davis, CA would be chugging across the bridge into Martinez, CA. The light trails are from an Amtrak passenger coach.

My new (to me) 31mm does guitars well too. I just got it yesterday and still have to learn it. Here is my Woolson.










Monkeypod back and sides. Looks like melted gold and sounds like mahogany.

I love the first shot! So much detail and great lighting.

I'm warming to my FA31 more and more...

Wow, that panorama is phenomenal. What software do you use for stitching? Really enjoyed your FA31 series of pics above, too.

Here are a couple recent photos with my FA77. I try but can't seem to take this lens off my camera.

1/250; f/2.5; ISO 100
