Just what I thought Mike-surreal. Then I looked at your Flicker collection Ed and found you have plenty more displaying an inspiring, creative gift.
Thanks so much - really glad you like the images :-)

Some Southern Utah country road stuff from around christmas.

A 200/4

FA 80-160

Some desaturations to see what they might look like in some very unsophisticated B&W conversions.

I love the look you get with the 80-160. Are you using any filters on it? The color is great too.

Wow that's an excellent action shot. Does the z have something like AI servo in the canon bodies?

Nice!
Those clouds look like a lot more than 8s. I love it when they do that!

I caught sunrise by our lake which is 17 miles long. The close end is frozen but about half way to the other end there is open water. At -18F it produces a nice cloud of steam!

I think my poor wife was regretting coming along at this point.
She really helps to illustrate how brutally cold it is.

I've always wondered about what must be frozen fog...

A fairy-tale situation at Veules les Roses, Normandy. Yesterday late afternoon.

Yes, it was that cold! I have a feeling she won't ask to join me for any more winter sunrises. She said her contact lenses froze and she couldn't see.

Frozen fog is pretty neat. We usually get a couple of freezing fog events a year here in town too but we haven't had one since I got my 645D. The neat thing about that is it covers everything in hoar frost, sometimes with feathery crystals a couple of inches long. It's an amazing effect and I look forward to the next one to capture it in medium format. Here's what it looks like (K-3 photo from last year).

I've been exploring the 1,100 miles of levee roads through the vast California Delta. There are dozen of islands here, so pardon me if my mountain + water formula gets monotonous, lol.

Here's some water plus a mountain from Sherman Island:

Thanks Mike. He is a lovely dog and that's most of the work done right there.

Thanks Susan. No, not even CIF (Catch In Focus). The FA 150mm is about the fastest focusing lens I have for this system and it simply cannot cope with a dog running towards me. However DxO did put the Z as top of the class for 'sports' and it wins on the quality of high ISO images allowing fast shutter speeds in lowish light and providing usable results. I had many shots that were of no use whatsoever due to missing focus, but what was in focus was beautifully captured at ISO 1600 - 6400, 1/800th - 1/1500th. Just I prefer those that have the subject's face in focus rather than his tail, or the grass where he stood half a second ago.

Great shots of Grand Central. Is the ghosting in the top one from a stitch job or did you manage to get a tripod set up? I tried that the one time I went there but it was too busy to get comfortable.

That has produced some excellent if not amazing results so don't change it. I sure wish I had some water!

Thanks! No filters, usually unless I use a GND to tame the sky in a sunset/sunrise type situation but none of that here.

Thanks for the explanation. The great ISO certainly comes in handily for lots of good applications. With action it seems like the old days of predicting where the subject will be, focusing there, waiting for the moment and grabbing the shot. We're so spoiled with autofocus as wonderful as it is.
