Hallett Cove, Adelaide, South Australia.
Was bloody hot still as the sun went down, still 35*C, but a nice golden glow that changed quickly depending on the clouds before and long after sunset

Difficult light conditions at a warmer temp, I see!

It's been very dark here even during the short days as besides the low sun angle at this latitude at this time of the year, we have had thick clouds day after day as well. That's why I HAD to get out when there was any sun at all here.

Very nice... the really cool thing is it wasn't that long ago I bought my k-20D, second hand for $850. The money is worth a lot less now, but you get a lot more for your money.

That Tiger shot is framable... take that to an art show as a framed print, or 11x14 or larger canvas and I'm sure you can sell that.

Thanks. I guess good lighting too.

I am trying out the Tamron 28-300mm lens, seems to be more sharper than Pentax old version 55 to 300 at 300mm, outdoor bright light. Indoor the Pentax is better or almost same as Tamron.

I like the 50-200 WR better than the above lenses. May be will try out the 55-300WR if my wallet allows.
