Lovely shots. The incongruity in the first shot is very good. Plus the ray of light aimed at the energy plant is an added bonus. I had forgotten about fences with step built into them. Thomas Merton was a monk at the Trappist Monastery in Pleasant Hill and mentioned the Shakers in some of his writings. He admired their way of life and the spirituality that was the basis of their lives.

Bedroom in a traditional Icelandic home at a rural-life type of museum. I didn't check the exif data, but this was probably taken with an 8~16 Sigma

First I post a picture of a bedroom, then LeRolls posts an image of a lovely young woman. Why does he do that to us?

On Saturday, went to the Montreal Botanical Garden. Within a few minutes of walking in, we ran into this beautiful cardinal, perched super close to the trail. Had to (quietly) change lens to take the shot, but the bird just calmly stayed there while I was doing it. (DA HD 55-30mm F/4-5.8 WR)

Maybe you are a natural birder. They do not wait for me. Great photo.

Our little Sheltie was in an agility trial this weekend. When the trial is outside, I sometimes take pictures of other dogs during competition (generally I must get out of sight when our Sheltie runs, otherwise she gets distracted, and I've somewhat given up taking pictures at indoor meets because of the weirdly colored light and need for an extremely high ISO - like 25,000 - to stop the action). In any case, I pre-frame, pre-determine exposure on manual, pre-focus on manual, and set the camera on high speed multi-exposure. I generally must include much more of an obstacle than I want in the final image because the dogs go over it at different places or from different angles. In any case, below is a pre-crop and post-crop of one image I liked from this weekend, a very good Australian Shepherd. K3, 60~250mm @ 220mm, ISO 1600, 1/2000, f9

Well, it's not my only goal. More like a side project...
