Hah! That sounds like a classic, Australian trip to me :-)

Once we are out of this Covid madness, if you find yourself over here again, be sure to give me a holler!
Definitely! That would be fun. As long as I don't hurl off the ferry again. Actually it was still fun on that trip too.
I have lots of family in Australia and I although I grew up in USA I only just got my American citizenship in 2018. Still have my Aussie passport.

Great! Let's set up a Pentax medium format grand tour then... 👍

Tuco, I must say that I definitely do like it! Stunning...
Thanks. I'm warming up to it. It was a pretty dull, overcast day making for a not so great BW anyway.

Good action on that ferry.

Herons hunting in the shadows

Throwback to 2018 when the world was still normal. I had an opportunity to stalk these Herons and take a couple of pictures. Even though they are very slow movers, once they are in an awkward "pose" they seem to hold that forever. Taken with 645z and 600 A*.

The 'Freshwater' class ferries operate in Sydney - between Circular Quay and the famous, beachside suburb of Manly. This trip involves a traverse of the Harbour Heads which, at times, exposes the vessels to some quite large swell. They were introduced in 1982 (with the launch of Freshwater herself; the other vessels, Queenscliff, Narrabeen and Collaroy were progressively launched between then and 1988) and have become a world famous symbol of Sydney. Now, the powers-that-be have announced an intention to withdraw them, with smaller, soulless, modern catamarans taking their place. Needless to say, there is a major campaign to overturn this decision which I ardently hope is successful.

Here you can see some of the vessels operating two days ago, in the conditions they were built to handle. All shots taken with the Pentax 645Z and 6x7 400mm EDIF lens (some with the 1.4x teleconverter, others not)...

Hi,

I meant to comment on the ferry shots yesterday. I got reading thru the updates and then forgot! I was going to use a different smilie, but I think this one fits better:

That's quite the trip. I don't get seasick, and rather like such things, actually.

Test of the 67 M 200 mm f/4 + 67 to 645 Adapter + 645Z, from f/4 to f/32.

Batiscan River, Quebec. Tripod-mounted 645Z + Adapter + 67 M 200 mm f/4 shot at f/4, f/5.6, f/8, f/11, f/16, f/22 and f/32 in Av mode, speeds varying automatically from 1/1000 sec @ f/4 to 1/15 sec @ f/32. Critical focus was set on the rock formation in the middle of the river. Only f/32 seems a little subpar as diffraction sets in. This 67 lens is highly usable at all the other apertures. Optimum seems to be f/16.

Glad to see some action with the Pentax 67 200mm f 4.0.

Difference between 100 mm FL (55-100 mm zoom) and 200 mm FL, 67 lenses on 645Z

I compared the image made first with the 67 55-100 f14.5 zoom @ 100 mm FL to the one made with the 67 200 mm f/4. Both, shot at f/11, are very sharp and saturated. A picture made with a 200 mm lens intercepts 25 % of the area covered by a 100 mm lens.

P.S. I have to hurry taking these pictures as winter is right around the corner. I had to use my shovel to clear the side of the bridge to set up my tripod.

Batiscan River at the onset of winter, CANADA. FA 33-55 mm f/4.5, 1/60 sec @ f/11.

October 2020 has seen twice the normal amount of precipitations, thus the rivers are swollen everywhere. This picture was taken in freezing weather, so the mist freezes on the cold rocks and creates extremely perilous conditions for whoever would like to get closer to the water. Tripod-mounted 645Z + 645 FA 33-55 mm f/4.5, 33 mm FL. 1/60 sec @ f/11. Light conditions were very difficult with whole areas of the picture in the shade even in the early afternoon hours.
