Another with 645z and HD 90mm capturing the slight 'rainbow' diffraction effect as a narrow fog filled valley joins a wider sunlit one.

Andrew, that fog filled valley shot is a classic. Is that a vapor trail in the sky? That would be something to remove.

Another 645Z Flamingo

Being able to crop to 25% and still get this detail shows the power of the 645Z sensor. Handheld snapshot.

Thanks.
Strangely that was a natural cloud formation, a kind of scout for the other linear messengers of foul weather to come that can be seen in the background. I quite like the way it frames the shot mirroring the tree line at the lower left.

Love the Shot with the sheep

I like the feel of the shot with the sheep. It looks cold and damp. What is the orange glow on the sheep?

A few shots from North Carolina

Here are a few shots taken with a new 645Z.... Sold a bunch of gear to get here but I'm excited about what I'm getting so far!

Love the different types of dreamy feeling of both the first and third shots.

I really like the painterly like colors of the third shot including the bright orange markings on the sheep showing which females are ready to mate

I have been on Holidays for the past few weeks and have not been on the internet all that much.
Here is my first image for 2015. Captured deep within the Dorrigo Rainforest, NSW Australia.
A 7 Image Vertical Panorama.
Pentax 645Z + DA25mm.

My Beautiful Grandaughter

This was cropped to 20% and you can count her eyelashes. The 645Z blows me away.

Livestock are sometimes marked with some kind of paint or something to identify their owners. I remember seeing it on some Dartmoor ponies during my time in England. These ponies can wander over common land for some time before being claimed by their owners.

Thanks. The markings on the sheep represent different things depending on which part of their body is marked and what colour the markings are. In this case a red blaze behind the head indicates the farm to which these sheep belong. The orange markings on the rear of the sheep are something else altogether. It indicates that these sheep (ewes) have been impregnated by the male (tup). The Tup wears an orange crayon waistcoat during the act and thus paints the lower back of the ewe orange. This lets the farmer know which are likely to be pregnant and which are not. I do not know if the Tup likes the waistcoat or if the ewes like being marked.

Thank you for the information. That is very interesting and it makes sense. I really like the feel of that photo. Keep up the good work.
