Builds character ;~) Nice light! Funny how that stream makes a sharp left just past the bridge
I should be oozing character by now then! Oh wait, that was just rainwater.

This creek has some great meanders and the bridge is right at the apex of a big bend so it turns like that before and after the bridge. In another month it might blow out of this bend if it gets high enough.

Thanks for all the comments!

That's a really nice shot Mike. We have vineyards all over the place here in eastern Washington, and I really enjoy shooting them, but this is terrific.

Getting a little fed up with the poor weather and at present little time to discover my camera. Still had time to look on the bay and picked up a couple of lenses (150mm A and 45-80 FA) a 2x converter and a set of extension tubes

Had chance for a quick play today with the 55mm and extension tube A. Some remedial work in PS to remove sticks and ties

645Z @ f/16, 1/8s, ISO 1000. Will try stacking next time for this type of shot

I got rained on tonight and just had the 45-85 on the camera so I tried to block as much as I could but it got kind of wet.
Seems ok, I wiped it off when I got home and left it without the caps on to air out a little with no visible moisture inside. When I took it off I could see traces of moisture on the metal ring of the lens mount but none in the body. Hopefully I got out of the rain just in time. It was clear a again a few minutes later.





Very nice colors & mood - looks like master paintings. Great, Matt!

From this morning in the backyard, a small snail was passing through the grass.

Would like opinions on the color rendition
Tom, the black and white version works but the colour version with it's mustard-coloured tone does't work at all.

Yes. That's the wording that best describes Matt's latest. Wonderful images.

This much magnification from the lens Mike? or did you have to crop? Use more extension tubes?

These and the painterly shots before are some of your best yet I think. Really nicely done!

Thanks. This is about a 3/4" shell, adolescent sized snail. I know this because the adult was twice as large and right next to it, however, it preferred to keep in its shell.

No additional mag nor cropping was needed, just the fully extended A120mm lens.

I sat my AF540 down in the grass about 5" behind it and then tried to get at least one eye and the body in the same plane of focus, which was a feat. Luckily in reviewing the shots, i got both eyes in focus, so was happy, lol.
My daughter helped me carry the snails around the other side of the wall behind the house, to help control damage to the plants. At our last home, we had to control a snail invasion - don't want that if we can help it.
