I've been up to the top of Cinder Cone several times five, six, seven years, but not in recent years. The so-called "Pink Lady Nipple" is really "The Painted Dunes," which are viewed from atop Cinder Cone. It's about a mile hike to Cinder Cone and then 1,000 foot elevation hike up a pile of very fine Volcanic rock — it's like walking in loose sand, not easy at all. Both of the times I've scaled Cinder Cone in the evening to photograph the Painted Dunes I ran across some rather stiff winds which made it very difficult to get sharp shots of the dunes below in the evening when the light was dimming. (It didn't help that I was using a version of the F 70-210 which wasn't all that sharp at long distances). With the K-1 probably the best lens to use for that shot would be something like the DFA* 70-200. But that would be a rather heavy lens to drag up that pile of volcanic sand. Note that it's a rather dusty place.
Thanks for the additional info on the Painted Dunes. Sounds like an intense hike. Now I know what to prepare for if I ever get there.

Plenty of nice photos posted by folks. Just some random shots around the house. Frederic, very pretty woodpecker. Eric, love the ducks & duckweed, cool shot.
Best Regards, Bob
Thanks Bobby, nice squirrel, he must be a tough guy, looks like a certain boxer got to his ear... heh.

The ducks weren't the only ones enjoying the duckweed.

Thanks Frederic!

Even though that lens was made to do long tele work, that macro is my favorite in that post! (extension tube?)
Very cool and nice flower!

All your posts are really great but this one is terrific Ken! It hits all the marks for me.
Singapore's travel board should pay you. Seriously.

The second image exudes Cleo interested in something forbidden, or perhaps, Cleo about to get into and do some mischief.
