G'day from Aus

Hi everyone,
I'm a long time reader of Pentax Forums and finally decided to bite the bullet and join up so I can contribute. I'm a nature, wildlife and landscape photographer (in my, all to infrequent, spare time) based on the coast of Victoria in Australia.

Cheers, Ian

G'day Ian and welcome to the forums.

Ocean Grove is a convenient spot for a variety of photography, hope you plan on sharing some examples with us.

Welcome to the forum Ian. I look forward to your contributions.

After you absorb the threads aslyfox shared, the Single In [month] challenge is a great way to hone your skills. Using a single lens for a month, you post one picture a day - that is the goal anyway. I've learned alot about how to get good photos out of mediocre or even poor quality lenses and what the strengths of my better lenses are.
The instructions are here, Single In March 2017 - PentaxForums.com

The photos for March are here: Monthly Photo Challenges - PentaxForums.com

Enjoy!
Jim

didn't mean to ignore the worthy thread that Jim P listed but I knew he would be along with his invitation

and to be truthful, there are just too many great threads to list, have fun exploring on your own

Hi all and thanks for the warm welcome.
I'm looking forward to getting involved and asking/answering questions. I'll also try and post some images now and then in relevant Forums.
