I decided to go shoot a few seascapes late in the afternoon, and whilst in the process I found these guys hanging on for dear life as the tide was on the rise..and quick. Whilst set up getting this shot, I lost a thong and had a crab take refuge under my camera bag. The thong floated back to me and the crab didn't try to steal any lenses.. so it was a good afternoon.

That's a winner for sure and, to my eye, a time when the 28-45mm wouldn't have been wide enough.

Managed to climb up to the old WW2 lookout radar towers. I did take photos of the towers and the interior of one of them, will process them later. Here are some from the walk up and back. I used two lenses -DA 28 - 45 and FA 80 - 160. No tripod today as it was blowing a gale so suspected it would be of little use in the wind, so saved the weight of the tripod by leaving it in the car. This is where the versatility of the Z comes into its own as the wood photos at the end are shot at 1600 ISO and I have pushed the exposure on them a bit too.

JinShanLing Great Wall with 645D, FA45-85, DFA90 Macro

Hi!

Yesterday was a nice day for a photo trip to the Great Wall at JinShanLing. We took a new route (this was the 10th time I went there), and I tried some new lenses,

FA45-85 (it is sharp and versatile, my lens strategy for MF was to only buy primes, but the FA45-85 is a gem!)









DFA90 Macro:

Beautiful work Thomas . . . there's something for me to see everywhere in the image . . . there are layers of textures, and the bright spots are all in the right places.

Ahahaha Mike that is great. I just read Thomas' post and your reply out to my wife and she had a great chuckle.

Gotta love wordplay in different cultures.

Got to shoot my 645Z at high ISO (@ 6400). Back button focus worked great for shooting music and didn't have that much AF hunting (about the same as a 5D MKII in dark conditions).

More from yesterday. The lookouts are the best preserved WW2 lookouts in the UK, and were built to protect the UK from shipping and submarines coming up the Bristol Channel, using low level radar.

All with 28 - 45

Thanks, yep your right... Any tighter and I wouldn't of fit what I wanted in. Those extra few mm mean a lot sometimes!

We've had a fair bit of rain over the last couple of weeks so the waterfalls are all running again, this spot isn't too far from where I live.

This picture from sunrise was originally taken in landscape orientation. But after looking at it a few days on the screen I wanted to try a crop in portrait format which gives the image a more graphical look I think. What do you guys mean ?
