Was at an event last night and intended to drive the full 300 miles to the Lake District, due to arrive at 330am. Got a third of the way through, and felt tired, so got in the back of the car and had a few hours sleep. Am glad that I did, as not only did that mean that I didn't crash, but also meant that I arrived at the edge of the Lake District just before sunrise. Noticing the colour in the sky, I pulled in to a lay-by and got my cameras out.

Yep, it great to see wildlife! Woohoo! I have a tough enough time with my heat but the weight is about the same.

I'm curious how the focusing is working. Yet, my system of an old 1d ll and 400mm plus 1.4 extender is quite behind the times.
Hi Susanb. The Lens Autofocus works fast and is very accurate.

Nice bird pictures. I've read many a thread of APS-C guys whining and crying over how big and awful 35mm format lenses are for birding. And you man-up, take this gear out and get'er done.
Thanks Tuco.

New to me Pentax 645. Took this with some Delta 3200, shot at 1600 and dev'd at 3200. All of the low light shots from the roll didn't turn out, but these few dog shots turned out pretty well. Must have been taken with my 150mm lens, as the other culprit is the 55mm, and I don't think I'd be getting this bokeh from it!

To use a much over-used word, awesome--in the sense of awe inspiring. Mist over the valley my favorite.

I liked all of them, however the last one was best of all.

The first of the second set is another real stunner, capturing the beautiful rim light on successive hills and ridges.

For the time being I am just getting to know the lenses I had for some time already. They don't disapoint.
Also I have to get used to the 4/3 format again and the colors. In AWB all the colours look to blue to me.

yesterday I tryed the A 150.
Well here almost everything is blue.

Thanks all, much appreciated...my wife told me off for not staying in a hotel in Windsor - I'm glad I didn't as I would not have had this light otherwise.

here are a few more from yesterday morning...

OK, that's the ugliest bird shot I've ever seen, and so my all-time fave! Really shows the dinosaur heritage.
