O that's a nice capture. I've been thinking about getting a nicer telephoto zoom and that makes going up to at least 300mm enticing.

Over on the Washington side of the Columbia this afternoon and found that the wild peas are in bloom. These pretty little rascals are all over the place. And the fruit, the pea itself, is edible but tiny. I also installed a nice new 27" monitor and the resolution and color capture of the Q-S1 has improved.

The picture is with the Pentax 01 prime lens which finally arrived after being mailed in April.

Nice images! Colors look very natural. Since April? Wow, I was bouncing off the walls when a lens took over 6 weeks to arrive from Australia. The 01 is a great little lens. Enjoy.

Thanks,

Rain?

Does it rain much in Astoria? The precip figures run from 67" to 85" a year. That's talking about some serious rain, folks. The upside is that it washes away the effects of the salt air. The downside is that it washes away just about everything else, like houses which are known to slide downhill in our own peculiarly greasy mud which helps this to happen. One knucklehead builder put in a development on a hillside. One house slid downhill onto the HS athletic field.

And then there is the rust. Ran across this fellow today. Shoulda had the 02 zoom. I love that lens.
