Ah I have so much to learn with only having this camera for a few days. Some of your guys pictures are amazing. I'm only hoping I can do the same. Here are a few of mine.






looks like you are getting the hang of the k30 quite nicely!

Thank you! I've been trying to figure out a lot of the manual setting to try to get the best photos, but when all else fails, auto!

Making good use of the great high ISO capability of the K-30 plus focus peaking to help with manual focusing to take some pictures in challenging light...

A walk in New Hampshire's great north woods resulted in waaay too many possibilities. Here is one of them. No signs of elves tho!

I was pretty lucky with this shot.
Made my way to the site the first time, and was dismayed when I stepped out of the train station.
The whole place was covered with clouds.
Went back.
Tried the 2nd day, but again, the venue had just rained and was again cloudy.
Without much choice, I made my way up the vantage point.
Thought of waiting for blue hour for perhaps better visibility with a darkend sky, but I tried a few shots in the gloomy light/weather.
Turns out I liked the one with the gloomy sky just before sunset.

Wow!
I envy you for both the places you can cycle and the places you can take photos of.
