That tree has a magical quality to it.. The foggy light doesn't hurt of course, but the shape is just elemental.
Thank you. It was on a shoot with someone who used to post a lot in the Full Frame thread, MarkLJ. There was a nice glow in the area which looked like it was developing to something nicer and then the mist got thicker and blocked out the sun. For me everything was complete when the coal lorry arrived. I waited for it to get to that point and pressed the shutter once. There are a lot of oak trees like that in the Lake District, and they look particularly spectacular in the mist of dawn.

Two star trails from just outside Ambleside in the Lake District. The longer one is a near miss. I wanted to get the North Star in, a car passed, which I actually like, a 16mm 35mm on 4:3 equivalent would have given me the angle of view I needed. I was also hampered by a 70% full moon which robbed the sky of contrast...know better for the future now though, get a little further back, and while I like having some moonlight to light the way, 50% is plenty...

5323 seconds f/13 (I was going to shoot for another 30 minutes, but temperature hit 0 C and condensation was forming and then freezing.

Nice.the weather has been great in Northern Britain this week.

I'm still waiting for my 28-45 to come back. I had a response from the Ricoh imaging social media team on Twitter who took my details and said someone would get in contact. Nothing since I messaged them a week ago. And they hadn't between that message and the one 5 days before that when they first asked for my contact details. Very very poor.

What happened to your 28-45?
It took a tumble about a year ago. Optically it appeared fine to me, still sharp in all the right places, but the zoom ring was stiff and didn't reach all the focal range without a struggle. Apparently a non weather sealed lens would have been quite simple to fix, since the dealer I buy things from said that what appeared to have happened was the screws inside the zoom ring had been knocked loose, and it was usually quite a simple fix, but weather sealing complicated things so it had to go to Pentax's engineers. That was in early November. I heard nothing at all in spite of the dealer chasing it 4 times until they finally came back to the dealer at the beginning of March with an estimate of 800 to fix it (about $1200). The dealer came back to me that morning - 1st March and I replied to his email by return with the instruction to repair. He phoned them immediately giving them the instruction. The next day, I asked the dealer if he could let me know an estimate on the wait for the repair. He got in touch with them (it would be Johnson's Photopia in Newcastle under lyme (I've been to their offices before to drop off and pick up the camera for a sensor clean - which they did within 2 hours free of charge) and they told him it would be 2 - 4 weeks depending on whether they had the parts there. Fast forward 2 weeks and the dealer calls them to check on progress. they say no instruction was given to repair. My dealer says there was and that they should check their phone recordings. They said that they would when they had time. So he played them his recording of him giving the instruction to repair on 1st March. They still wouldn't accept that they were at fault.

I messaged Ricoh Imaging UK on twitter (after publicly mentioning them, which they ignored) explaining the situation before I went into my dealer's shop in Cardiff last week. They asked for contact details which I gave. No contact from the repair site. After I got the feedback, I again messaged Ricoh Imaging UK stating that I was very unhappy and that unless they got in contact with me within 7 days or returned the lens to me fixed, I would treat the lens as lost by Ricoh's agents and would require them to send me a replacement. Today, 7 days following I have again messaged Ricoh telling them no contact has been made and that their agents don't seem to give a fig, and that I would be treating the lens as lost as 4 months is an unacceptable amount of time to keep it with minimal feedback. To say I am angry is an understatement. It is absolutely shocking.

I am busy this weekend or else I would have been at The Photography Show and at any public presentation of the K1 I would have asked why they continue to use a repair agent who is so hapless and careless. Unfortunately I am busy right over the period of the show.

First roll from 645N/55mm

Snow photo from the first roll through my just acquired like-new 645N and the A-55mm. Getting right exposure for snow scenes must be an art!
